I am supposed to start dispatching in 10 minutes and I don't have the phone or radio. Call and both are delivered within 5 minutes. I became the "call center" at exactly 6:00 PM. Whew! Thats cutting it real close.

But I will say that I was really sleeping good.

It took until 6:30p before the brain actually kicked in. Up to then it was just doing rote routine. Functioning - not thinking. Stick a phone in my ear and put a radio in my hand and I go on "automatic mode".

Out of the last 15 days, this was my 7th night dispatching. No wonder I am so dang tired.

I used to play "at" golf but it has been almost 7 years since my last tour of the links.

Shot a 72 at that time.

Then the course marshal told me there were still 17 holes left to play.

I play golf military style:
Left - Right - Left - Right.

I spent so much time in the woods that I took up bird-watching as a secondary hobby.

BTW - What is the purpose of a Driving Range if they won't let you take a monster truck on it?

And don't putting greens remind you of a billards table? Hit the ball and hope it goes in ONE of the holes.


Birds of a feather flock together
and crap on your car

When I'm feeling down, I like to whistle.
It makes the neighbor's dog run to the end of his chain and gag himself.
A penny saved...
is a government oversight.
The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right time,
but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.
The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight,
because by then your body and your fat have gotten to be really good friends.
The easiest way to find something lost around the house
is to buy a replacement
He who hesitates...
is probably right.
Did you ever notice:
The Roman Numerals for forty (40) are "XL."
If you think there is good in everybody...
you haven't met everybody.
If you can smile when things go wrong ...
you have someone in mind to blame.
The sole purpose of a child's middle name is
so they can tell when they're really in trouble.
There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it.
For example I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt
Did you ever notice:
When you put the 2 words "The" and "IRS" together it spells "Theirs."
A pretty slow night on the phone.

Have a great new week!
