Since the birthstone for June is the pearl and the flower the rose, we send out Rainbows-of-Pearls-and-Roses to Pappy Parsons and Bill Hague who celebrate their special days this week. Happy birthday, Bill and Pappy!
Karen’s Commentary: Talk about the “end of an era” – how about the “end of almost a lifetime?” I’ve been a Bank of America customer since 1961 – 58 years! Through thick and thin, home mortgages and car loans, we have always had a checking and a savings account with Bank of America all these years. Now the only branch left in the Morongo Basin will be closing on September 10. In their notification, it states that you can still do all your banking online or by phone – nothing is mentioned about using an ATM, by the way. Well, let me tell you, when you have a problem, having to contact someone in Texas, Chicago, Florida or beyond just does not cut it, not to mention the HOURS spent on hold, navigating websites and/or pressing buttons! So long, Bank of America.
