Can I bank with you? Poor old plumbers were on call 24/7 - 365. We never got a break and when our truck was in the shop we had to walk to our jobsite..... uphill both ways.....but we did get to charge by the footstep, not the mile.

So you are not available to answer Otis' inquiries until tomorrow? How convenient!

...and what about those naked girls...Otis says if we can have the naked girls he won't ask about the peppers again.
I'll give you a call about 8:00a.m. tomorrow.
I don't open until ten so we'll have plenty of time to swap lies.

Nice one - thanks for posting. My first ever international flight was on a 747 with KLM.

Mine was Cape Town - Amsterdam - New York. Once, with Qantas, I had the happy experience of flying Sydney - JHB, some of the way in the jump seat in the cockpit. Real nice experience. Bet that won't fly these days!
Do you remember the 727's with the stair in the tail?

I have two early appointments tomorrow.......make it Wednesday and I'll be looking forward to your call. Otis will be here in the morning, but trust me, you do not want to talk with Otis....and you wouldn't...couldn't...understand him anyhow!

Regards!

Goldfish?? That had to be a tough one to master! I would not even attempt it....

I've been attempting to learn raccoon for several years now without much success.....so far all I understand is a few words...like "food"..."more food"....."pizza, more pizza"!

Every other word from squirrels is a curse word..sometimes every word. Foul mouth little rodents.

Well, I'm the only one in the house the goldfish seem to listen to. I suppose I'm OK at squirrel precisely because of the swearwords. It's the only words I know! (I'm still blamed, 17 years later, for the fact that our daughter's 3rd or 4th word was a cuss word!)

Yeah, they have to get that right. I remember a hostess taking me there to meet the flight crew.

On the other hand, if no one can get in you can have that Germanwings co-pilot situation.

How humid is it here this morning?
Walk outside with your picture taking device and the lens and display fog over immediately.
Makes for some nice soft focus Doris Day style shots though.

When Mrs Rupert saw these shots from yesterday, a few squirrels blushed at what she had to say to them.....

Just tending the soil in Mrs Rupert's favorite deck plant...


....when he lost control of those razor sharp teeth.


She didn't ask for him Dead or Alive.....just dead.

Off to town on business......see you later! Wow, this is far too early for old Rupert....even in my working days 9am was when I left my shop......never earlier!

I find it confusing how a majority of my coworkers seem to have no clue that the company they work for celebrated its 100th year in business last Friday. It can't be for lack of communication on the part of the company. There have been plenty of e-mails (the primary way the company communicates to employees), banners and flyers everywhere, and the monthly company magazine Frontiers with a commemorative 100 page special edition.

And every employee received a commemorative paperweight.


The paperweight and magazine are already on eBay.

I'm thinking I should augment my income too.
