Found: To-Do List

Dear Mr. Mayor,

I recently attended a Knox County School Board meeting, and when it was adjourned, I found a page from your daily planner on the floor. Since it was too late to return it, I thought I would post this as a reminder.

6:45 a.m.: Taxidermist. Pick up newly acquired raccoon skin (found on road) for coon-skin hat. (The previous one was lent to the Davy Crockett Museum in Morristown, whether they wanted it or not)

7:15 to 7:36 a.m.: Commute. Drive my own vehicle to the City-County Building. Donate my would-be parking money to retired Hooter's workers.

7:55 a.m.: City-County Reception Area. Do weekly spot check of building reception desk

8:00 a.m.: Knox County Mayor's Office. Hang up my 5-year-old North Face jacket, and change into my custom-tailored blue suit.
