yeah it is. :) Yesterday evening Suzn offered to babysit the grandson so Angie & i could go see the Dairy Days parade in the next town. I like small-town parades & didn't have to pull anything this year, so it was good to watch one. They had 30-some John Deeres, a rear-engined Allis, 6 guys throwing candy from an aerial bucket, a kidsized Bobcat and a missus chasing her hubby with a rolling pin. And Angie got her cotton candy. Longest she'd been away from the baby in 6 months, bless her heart.

I never had no kids--er, well none that I know of anyway. Yup, it's my gift to the world. The dis-function stops here. Work, work? Oh yes, now I remember. Gives me cold chills to think about work! Wear your (DELETED) patch with pride!

on your comment on "work", if you would re-read my post, you will find NO mention of "work". I said, and I repeat, "One more nite shift left"! period! I am appauled to think that someone would, even vaguely, suggest that "work" and my name could even be mentioned in the same thread!!!!Have tried for years to make management understand that they would be money ahead to pay me to stay mistakes on company time, costing untold millions, not having at least six other employees on standby to keep a "handle" on my every move, and the list goes on.....realy starting to believe "they" are in a conspiracy to see how misserable my life can be made!!!One deviouse little thing the pay clerk keeps doing to aggravate me,....she keeps putting a decimal point in the "take home pay" that realy hurts!! After all these years of showing up for "work", then "they" have the unmitegated gaul to actualy expect me to do something.....well, I never....and I didn't, either! Was told that "work" builds "charactor", now, I ask you, what kind of a "charactor" am I going to build after all these years? I tried it once and didn't like it.....

[DELETER]ers unite! Have a gooder,R.E.L.

Man that's tough they want you to work. America's been real hard that way.

grove r, I'm greatly relieved. I promise to READ what's written and not assume! Your experience at a place of employment certainly mirrors mine, too. Finally, they saw the light and here I am in glorious retirement. Just me and my cows, tractors and Jake's banana trees. Yup, couldn't get much better than that. I have been heard to comment, "As long as there are banks to rob, I'll never go back to work." On the banana farm, Gimpleg
