Miscellaneous Garbage

The Mariners lost 101 games this year. Hey, Joe Torre, want a job?

I won $204 yesterday at the Muckleshoot Casino. $160 on one 25-cent bet at a slot machine. I gave each of my girls $100 and kept the rest.

I have somewhere between 25 and 27 work days left. I had a cold last week and had to kill two sick days, so my count is off and with what I'll accrue between now and the end of the year, it'll be tricky making my Adios date.

October is zipping along and I'm eager for it to be over. I especially look forward to Friday, which is my holiday for Columbus Day.

The image of Homicide Hostess has nothing to do with this post. I just like it.

Hope you're feeling better, Bob. These things can drag on. Kind of like work.

I tried to resign today but my employer refused to accept it and asked me to reconsider. He just doesn't want the hassle of replacing me. I am gone on December 8th.
Take care of yourself. I see you take good care of your girls.

Jeez, now Patti is retiring with you! I'm going to be the only one still working in our group.

Feeling fine, Laurie, thanks. My cough lingers but I've always coughed.

I'm looking at Dec 3 as my final work day, jan 3 as my official retirement date, Patti.

You must love it, George, else why would you stay? Can't be the money. You have enough.

Don't get the two days of sick leave so may not make the retirement date comment in the earlier post. Glad you're feeling better, by the way.

I always assumed you had hundreds of hours of sick leave built up. When I retired (over 5 years ago now) I had 38 weeks on the books, plus a week of vacation left, al of which they had to pay me for. Fortunately, it was in January, so the tax bite didn't kill me the way it would have late in the year.

George, being a teacher, has summers and long holiday periods off, which makes working a lot more fun. Plus, teachers are On Stage a goodly portion of time, something I'm sure George enjoys.

You kept a whole four bucks for yourself? That'll almost buy you a cup of coffee. You're spoiling those Bobettes.

George said...

You can't be too thin or too rich, Bob.

Cap'n Bob Napier said...

Just the thing to say to a poor, fat guy. That hurts.

George said...

You're pretty smooth on the dancefloor, Bob. And you're thinner than I am. I can't resist pizza. It's my downfall.
