I'm safe in the hotel.... I need to explain "My War Zone"... ;-)

The plant that I work for in Jackson has a sister plant in Pulaski. I've been working here Monday through Thursday since the end of April. The person that was in the same position as me quit about 7 months ago. The did not replace her. They just divided her job up among other people.... wrong thing to do. So, I was asked to come and and help them get ready for a third party audit. I agreed... this is my WAR ZONE!

Every Monday, I leave home around 7:00 am and start on my two hour journey. Today, I get to my desk and I can't see it. The only thing I can see is my phone, computer and printer. They loaded me up! Yes, that is a good thing... they are doing what I have asked them to do... ALL AT ONCE! I'll get through it.

Sorry, I did not mean to alarm anyone. I don't care that you're nosey. Hey, I'm nosey too... sometimes... especially if something has caught my attention...

Sorry, but I must talk a little baseball... my favorite sport although my St. Louis Cardinals ARE NOT doing so hot this year...

Sitting here watching the news and literally laughing my butt off... I love this tantrum that the Mississippi Brave manager pitched this weekend. I absolutely LOVE IT!!!! I love how he crawls out to the pitcher's mound and throws the "grenade" at the ump. This is a classic!!! How in the world did he come up with something like that... I'm still laughing my butt off on this one! This one will go in the record books at the all time greatest!!! Let's combine this with the Lou Piniella tantrum and the Joe Torre run during the Sox/Yankees game on Friday and it was a very entertaining weekend.
Boys will be boys!!!!!!!!!!

Found this joke today and just had to share it....

A little boy came down for breakfast one morning and asked his grandma,
"Where's mom and dad?" to which she replied, "They're up in bed."

The little boy started to giggle, ate his breakfast and went out to play. Then he came back in for lunch and asked his grandma, "Where's mom and dad?" and she replied, "They're still up in bed." Again the little boy started to giggle, ate his lunch and went out to play.

Then the little boy came in for dinner and once again he asked his grandma, "Where's mom and dad?" His grandmother replied, "They're still up in bed."

The little boy started to laugh and his grandmother asked, "What gives? Every time I tell you they're still up in bed, you start to laugh! What is going on here?"

The little boy replied, "Well last night daddy came into my bedroom and asked me for the Vaseline, and I gave him super glue."


One more thing for today ...

Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh unncontrollably...Never regret anything that made you smile.

Gail, I'm fine just really stressed and missing my family like crazy.

Julie, I loved that joke too.

blogger, they need Anger Management classes along with a refresher on"Sportmanlike Conduct".

Ann, I knew you wouldn't like the baseball talk, but dang it's funny. I'm glad you scrolled past it too.

Matt, those poor Cincy Reds... I feel your pain...

Kyra, yes they pay my gas, my hotel room and my other expenses. If they didn't I wouldn't be doing this.
