Aloha, Hawaii...((HUGS))...how are you and son doing? Still working on a trip to the mainland?

Our supposed 1 inch of sleet turned into almost 6 inches of snow on my driveway. We are running out of places to put it.

I did call the municipality and ask about getting a loader to make the pile in the cul-de-sac taller instead of so low and W I D E. My street is already one lane with all the snow and bigger vehicles are having a tough time getting around the circle and back out.

Yes...arguing with me is pointless. She can’t win. I can only pay that which is entered into the system, and I don’t usually enter timesheets. I do enter the odd late ones, but these were all entered by a supervisor.

Go work it out with them. If you got shorted, or the wrong rate was paid, I can fix it after an amended timesheet from the supervisor. So many of the security folks work multiple places at multiple rates. It is up to them to get it right if they want to be paid right.

How goes it with you? A full complement?

Going on cereal helps in sleeping all night.

Keeps the tummy full longer.

How much does he weigh now?

Aloha again Night Owl!((HUGS))

What a day today....one that was expected to be non eventful but ended up with lots of events. Just a short trip to the store this morning and on the way home, the car in front of me stopped short because some punk ran out in front of him...so I had to pile on my brakes too. The punk escaped, there was no bumper banger but my brake line busted. Limped home in low gears and called my son to give me a hand fixing it. Well to make a short story long tomorrow we'll replace all the brake lines just to be sure this doesn't happen elsewhere in the system.

Yes....the trip is still on; just have to find a right date for the family reunion.

WOW! I’m sure glad you had no bumper bangers...but a broken brake line is not good. Altho...checking them all before something untoward happens is a good thing.

Thanks. Home safe and sound. Not too slippery, but a moose on the loose. I was just about the only one on the road after the first couple miles. Fortunately she was up ahead and trotting across the road at a safe distance.

WELCOME TO THE


(where our troops, allies and their families can refresh themselves)

Good morning, Everyone. Good morning

Thank you, Ma, for preparing the Canteen for today’s activities.

You Are an Anti-Valentine
As far as you're concerned, Valentine's Day could cease to exist and the world would be a better place for it.
You don't hate love and romance, but you hate the commercialization of it.

You also can't stand the idea that you need to be in a relationship to be happy. In fact, you really resent that.
For you, the perfect Valentine's Day is to forget that it even exists. Your normal life is nice enough as is.
What Kind of Valentine Are You?

Surprised? NOT! LOL

Looks like I'll be having company
in my office for a while.
My supervisor will be stopping in during the morning hours
to take care of business before he goes off to do his thing.
Since this is new, I don't know how that will work...
here only couple hours? Or all day on certain days?
I'm apologizing in advance for disappearing or not answering your pings.


Just remember, it's not about me, it's about the troops & families.
So, stick around
Keep the troops and their families entertained.
Besides, you know that I'll always be back.

The Canteen is

Come on in and sit for a while.
There's always plenty of coffee, tea,
pancakes, conversation, silliness,
and plain old BS

REMEMBER THEM

DEFENDERS OF FREEDOM

FR CANTEEN MISSION STATEMENT

Showing support and boosting the morale of our military and our allied military and the family members of the above. Honoring those who have served before.
