So, happy Saturday. After my 7 hour stint at work this afternoon, I'm not scheduled until next Thursday. I can live with that. Four days off. It's anybody's guess at how busy the store is going to be today. This used to be a transitional period. Since the holidays are approaching, people begin to think of installing new flooring, especially carpet. However, we're competing with college football. I was told that Penn State has won every game so far this season. Living in Central PA, that is an important factor. A lot of people want to hear those Nittany Lions roar.
For our Success Sharing weekend, today is ice cream and Blizzard day. I don't know if that means a Dairy Queen truck is going to be parked in back of the building, or if we're going to be served some sort of knockoff.
My slides are all in my computer, or at least the ones that I'm keeping have been saved. Most of the 100 + pictures I took of animals at the San Diego zoo are in the trash. If you want to see a peacock just Google peacock. What did I save? Pictures like this. In 1973, I spent a few weeks working in the radar department of our destroyer escort. I was flown there by a helicopter (I really don't like helicopters). here's one of the pictures I took when I flew back to the Constellation. This is what it looks like from above as you're preparing to land. And yes, those are jet planes parked on the flight deck.
That's a impressive aerial view isn't it. But I'm with you, I don't like helicopters either. When someone signed me up for a helicopter ride in St. Lucia I think I was expecting something like a Chinook instead of what looked like a five-seater can of beans with rotor blades! We had perfect weather but even so I was SOOOO glad to get back on terra firma!ReplyDelete
It wasn't the flying as much as it was how loud it was. We were wearing headsets with mics so we could talk, and even then you needed to shout.Delete
The new GOP platform pamphlet looks like a takeout menu.ReplyDelete
True, I wonder if there is going to be a conservative version of Door Dash.Delete
That's right to Bob's comment. A takeout menu. Taken out right to the trash.ReplyDelete
I had a lovely conversation with a door to door young lad today. He was going door to door talking up Fetterman, Shapiro and Sara Agerton to replace Sherly Delozier. I can't stand that woman. I fear Sara will have a very steep battle though. It's historically hard to knock out long time incumbents. I offered him coffee and we had a nice talk. We talked of our volunteer roles. Pretty cool our paths crossed and never met before at Dem headquarters.
Rats, the only people knocking on my door are Jehovah Witnesses, and not one has ever been cute.Delete
Your picture of the Constellation obviously should be classified for national security reasons...unless of course, using the power of your mind, you declassified it.ReplyDelete
You right, shame it only works on declassification.Delete
