A new beginning!!!! In more ways than one!

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

Hi All! Interesting thing… You know those stupid emails that come around eg. Chaplains can’t say the name of Jesus any more, or Pastors removed from TV? Well I get these from a brother-in-law and I always send a reference to Snopes that shows that it is false. Well, lo and behold, I got one the other day that was headed with:

“Gayle,your such a good investigator, is this true. So much on the internet is off base - Happy New Year - Love Skip”

Blew me away! He’s started to think after all these years! WOW!!! Rejoice!

Oh, and Happy New Year!!! A new beginning!

Progress on my bass!

Monday, December 31, 2012

12/30/12: Worked up a couple songs today on my electric bass: "Me and Bobby McGee" and "Day Is Done." Does that bring back any memories?

Well it's not a bass, but you get the idea!)

How Government Works

Sunday, December 30, 2012

Once upon a time the government had a vast scrap yard in the middle of a desert. Congress said someone may steal from it at night, so they created a night watchman position (GS-4) and hired a person for the job.

Then Congress said, "How does the watchman do his job without instruction?" So they created a planning position and hired two people: one person to write the instructions (GS-12) and one person to do time studies (GS-11).

Then Congress said, "How will we know the night watchman is doing the tasks correctly?" So they created a Q.C. position and hired two people, one GS-9 to do the studies and one GS-11 to write the reports.

Then Congress said, "How are these people going to get paid?" So they created the following positions, a timekeeper (GS-09) and a payroll officer (GS-11) and hired two people.

Then Congress said, "Who will be accountable for all of these people?"

So they created an administrative position and hired three people: an Admin. Officer (GM-13), an Assistant Admin. Officer (GS-13) and a Legal Secretary (GS-08).

Then Congress said, "We have had this command in operation for one year and we are $18,000 over budget, we must cutback overall cost," so they laid off the night watchman.

Super Bowl

Friday, December 28, 2012

John received a free ticket to the Super Bowl. Unfortunately. John's seat was in the last row in the corner of the stadium. He was closer to the Goodyear Blimp than the stadium. He noticed an empty seat 10 rows up from the 50-yard line. He decides to make his way to the empty seat. As he sits down he asks the man next to him if anyone is sitting there. The man told him no, it was empty. John is very excited to have a seat like this at a Super Bowl and asks why in the world no one is using it? The man replied that it was his wife's seat but she passed away. He said this was the first Super Bowl that they have not attended together since they were married in 1968. John said that it was really sad and asked if he couldn't find someone, a relative or a close friend to take the seat?

"No" replied the man, "They're at her funeral!"
