Face Lift Story

A few years ago, the First Commonwealth Bank located on Philadelphia Street and Station Avenue was robbed.  Sara, one of the Indigo Bus drivers, mentioned that my picture was in the paper and that I looked exactly like the suspect.

I had not seen the paper until one afternoon another Indigo Driver gave me the Indiana Gazette with the photograph of the male thief on the front page.

When I saw the picture, I was surprised to say the least.  I know that I am getting older, but to be compared to the guy in the paper, really made me think that this must be the time to address my physical appearance and get some help from all the Bus drivers and passengers.

I made three jars with Facelift Funds to collect money from Sara, the other Indigo Drivers, and any passengers that think I need to get some work done.

It was just for fun, but Richard, one of the Drivers, still asks me once in a while if I am planning on robbing any other banks.
