Jeff please accept my apologies if I didn't make the direction of the comment clear.  As Stacey said, it was actually a joke between friends that was directed at Ed owning a bar, and Larry jumped right in behind me.  While it would be a load of fun for us to go hang out with Ed, it would be a bit like putting a pack of hound dogs in charge of a butcher shop.

Stacey, once again it takes a woman to straighten me out, Thank you.

Thanks everyone, and sorry.......  guess I may be a little sensitive right now and I just took it wrong.  I appreciate everyone's responses.

I've got only good things to say about all the folks here, and have received a lot of good help in the past from Ed V, Marv, CurlyCord, Rich C., Arthur, and others I'm sure whose names won't come to me at the moment,  THANKS AGAIN!

Ed... went back through posts and just learned of your troubles, sorry for that and I know you'll be bouncing back and if you're anything like me you probably won't be happy working for someone else anyhow.  Whatever you decide I know you will do it well and professionally.   I do kind of miss reading those soap box rants however.

Well, now that we brought up the soapbox....

....So I'm at a construction progress meeting the other day and the architect asks me how many RJ45 jacks we have installed to date.

 :035:

Seriously, thanks to all of you for the compliments and associated humor.  I guess that I do have a bit of a reputation in more ways than one.  Here I was thinking that Hal was the one with the reputation.  Silly me.

Ed, I quit going to ours about 5 months ago what a waste of time, I now read the meeting minutes and if I disagree with anything I send the architect an email stating my case.   Our job meetings are not mandatory however

Yeah, I really miss having to brew a pot of coffee and taking a smoke break in the middle of reading some of those!  :011:

Although if you go through with it, Mark and I will come to NC for happy hour(s).

I'll meet you there Trace.  How about a "Happy Weekend"?

Trace is right, Christmas to New Years is just a shorter binge!   :011:
