    FREE pie and coffee!!!

    Our local bank here in Tucson, Washington Federal, had Customer Appreciation Day today.
    Free pie and coffee! Choice of apple, pumpkin or pecan pie. A real generous serving and a good cupa coffee too. They set up several tables and chairs in the lobby.
    Rode in on our tandem after picking up our packet for the El Tour de Tucson.
    Nothing like dessert first!!!
    Pedal on TWOgether!

    And when they asked if you wanted apple, pumpkin or pecan, you said yes?

    That sounds like a good reason to go to the bank to me! My wife is making me a homemade Pecan Pie for my birthday tomorrow and pie and some fresh ground Southern Pecan coffee will be had following our Saturday afternoon ride. How many pieces did y'all have?

    One thing I know, no matter what type of pie/s you had it/they wasn't/weren't near as good as Kay's, right?

    Go to the bank and get free coffee and pie? Sounds great!
    After I log in to online banking, will I find a link to the goodies?

    Kay had pecan pie.
    Rudy had apple pie.
    They also had sugar-free pie for folks that are diabetic.
    Limited ourselves to one big slice each as we did not want to spoil our lunch; we had just picked up a freshly-baked whole wheat cinnamon raisin bread at our local bakery. But, desert came first!
    Asked our bank if they would make this a weekly event; said they might consider doing it monthly.
    Bank actually mailed out an invitation advising us of the freebie.
    Free pie is nice!

    Sounds like great rides to me. You and Kay must have the good bakeries and coffee shops marked out pretty well. I agree about local banks, Monica and I are ready to move from the big boy to a local bank she knows many people from.

    The bigger the bank, the less they seem to care about, or for, customers.
    Few years ago teller at megabank told me to use the ATM rather than 'bother' her.
    Told her with that attitude she'd soon be replaced by an ATM!
    Closed my accounts, but did leave 4 cents in checking account. They still send me 'puter generated letter/statement monthly informing my of my balance.
    Impersonal? You betcha!
    Free pie and coffee and personal name greeting when I enter the bank is unusual nowadays!
    . . . and yes, we know the good bakery and coffee stops in our area!
    Pedsal on!

    That's because they've been told that they are "too big to fail" - and they believe it.

    How did you do on el Tour, zonatandem? I rode (the 111), and got my customary silver finish.

    El Tour?
    This was my 28th El Tour de Tucson.
    Rode Bike Patrol again in 2011 and did the 42 mile event.
    Finished in 3 hrs 15 min. (+ a few stops to offer assistance).
    At age 79 I was probably one of the more senior participants.
    Spouse Kay has ridden it with me on our tandem 15 times.
    Add in about 9 miles for pedaling to the start (nice climb up Innovation Dr. for a warm up).
    Nice part about doing the shorter distances is that you don't have to get outa bed at Oh-dark-30!
    Pedal on!
