Your Credit Union Weekend Reading Pile, Powered by NAFCU
Compiled by Anthony Demangone
I was driving down the road recently when Briggs yelled out from the back seat.
"Alexa - did the Nationals win last night?"
I had to tell Briggs that Alexa didn't work in our car. He didn't miss a beat.
"Then we need a new car."
Now, on to this week's reading pile.
