He told the 10an officer he was .going to Paris for two weeks and needed to borrow $5,000 and that he was not a depositor of the bank. The bank officer told him that the bank would need some form of security for the loan, so the guy handed over the keys to a new Ferrari. The car was parked On the street in front of the bank. He produced the title and everything checked out. The loan officer agreed to hold the ca'r as collateral for the loan and apologized for having to charge 12% interest. Later, the bank's president and its officers all enjoyed a good laugh about the uy from Illinois using a $250,000 Ferrari as collateral for a $5,000 loan. An employee of the bank then drove the Ferrari into the bank's private underground garage and parked it. Two weeks later, the guy " returned, repaid the $5,000 and the interest of $23.07. The loan officer said, 'Sir, we are very happy to have had your business, and this transac- tion has worked out very nicely, but we are a little puzzled. While you were away, we checked you out and found that you are a highly sophisticated investor and multimillionaire with real estate and financiall interests all over the world. What puzzles us is, why would you bother to borrow $5,000?' The guy replied, 'Where else in New York City-can I park my car for two weeks for only $23.07 and expect it to be there when I return?'

I hope everyone is able to keep cool and be safe in these exceptionally hot days. It does seem too hot to do just about any- thing, but it also seems very busy. The State Fair is run- ning. Some schools have started and others open soon. It seems just about anyone you speak to has a lot going on. Hope you have time to keep up with current events while sipping a cold drink. There are always important things of which to be aware. Being informed and aware and a critical thinker pays off. Be smart about taking earing of yourself and others in the heat. Now I am going to add some ice to my drink and put my feet up in a cool spot. I'm thinkin" that sound like a good idea. M.
