Hairnets and Taxes

As those who live here on the Coast with me know, it is property tax season. Ugh. I guess I wouldn't mind so much if I could dole out the dollars to exactly who and what I wanted to benefit. 
Or not.
But, I am nothing if not law-abiding so my taxes are paid. On time. No matter the personal sacrifice.Its just that I could really find so many fabulous ways to use all that overtime I had to work. And I could seriously use a nice vacation.


An alert Coaster sent me this photo:

Clearly, no fears of the metal detector.

Yup. That's a hairnet. At the courthouse.
It seems that Ben Franklin was correct. "In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes." 
Apparently even Hairnets must pay. 

In unrelated news - Periodically, I check to see just who is reading Coast of Illinois. I love seeing new locations and recently Latvia and China! have been added to the list. I have no idea if these are the result of some seriously misguided searches or actual visitors who are looking for news from the Midwest. And to that end - send me a comment and let me know who you are! Is there anything you would like to see here at  the Coast? You can comment below. At present, comments must go through an approval process so comments won't appear immediately. I haven't yet figured out how to change that setting but I promise that all comments will be posted, unless requested otherwise. 

Even comments from Hairnets. 


  1. after all you have written, are hairnets still being worn in restaurants?

    1. It seems, Phibby, that they are not just for restaurants anymore!!


Got a Hairnet sighting? Other weirdness?
