I wanted to post for the first time the reason for changing my
signature. Last Sunday at the liquor store where I went to cash
my check for the ot I worked the week before. As I drove up and

lady, was meandering back and forth out towards the street, in
front of the store. Looking of fear and confusion, as we made
eye contact I was surprized to see her fearlessly bolt straight
Now let me just say at this point, that my appearence is anything
but approachable. My build, my stride, serve to compliment a
