The memo that we all received today at work, concerning this year’s “office party” broke it all down for everyone to read and learn from. We have all been
asked instructed with at least one task in order to share the load and to try and keep the cost as low as possible.
This year we will all be meeting at the local VFW on the Thursday night before Christmas, December 19th, at 6:00. I was asked to buy printed tablecloths with the company logo. Of course the company will reimburse me. They are always prompt at reimbursing any of us.
With this in mind I guess I need to get started. It shouldn’t be too difficult to find and order. The sooner they get here, the sooner I get reimbursed. I don’t need to
If anyone deserves a break in their lives it is certainly our military personnel who have gone above and beyond and put their lives on the line for us all back home in the land of the free and the home of the brave, right? Most of us know or are related to someone who has or is serving our country, so we know how hard it is for them in so many ways, so any assistance that they are entitled to is a good thing. The Post 911 GI Bill is designed to help them in many ways, one of them being their education.
My brother-in-law is planning on taking advantage of this Post 911 GI Bill and is looking into taking some classes online with the well known Ashworth College that has a huge selection of online courses at very affordable prices. So along with their low prices combined with the benefits offered with the Post 911 GI Bill he should be go to go in a few years with a degree that will help him get a better job when his time is up in the military.
He is looking forward to taking classes online, which will be better than having to attend regular classes that would interfere with his very busy schedule on and off the base. I’m so proud of him and wish him all the luck in world in this challenge that will forever change his and my sister’s lives forever. I can’t wait for graduation, I’ll be the first one to be there to show my support and love for this man who my sister has placed so much trust in the last couple of years.
The pedal power 4×4 at musicians friend that I ordered last week came in today. I hope that my nephew will be impressed with this Voodoo Lab Pedal Power that he will find under the Christmas tree come Christmas morning. I wish that I could be there to see the look on his face. My sister has promised to take plenty of pictures to post on Facebook, so that will just have to do.
It’s a shame that my family just keeps on spreading out farther and farther with each passing year. I can’t image getting the whole family together for Christmas or Thanksgiving any time soon. I don’t think it would happen for a wedding either. And let us hope that we don’t have any funerals to find out how many would be able to attend.
I’ve known that whitehall address plaques have the best selection and a variety of prices but of course me being me I had to check it out for myself and see what I could find using the Internet for all that it is worth and meant for. I really want one of the nice looking custom address plaques that a lot of my neighbors are having made up and installed. I’ve talked with several of them and they all have told me the same thing that whitehallis the way to go, most interesting, I had no idea that whitehall had such a reputation.
The need for better residential address plaques has been a topic of conversation around the neighborhood for some time now ever since we all most lost Mr. and Mrs. Blackwell last year due to the personalized address plaques that they had on their home that wasn’t placed in the best place for the ambulance driver to see it and there was a major hassle that cost them a lot of valuable time that could have been used to try and help stabilize both of these poor people that were both having medical issues that required the EMTs assistance.
So I have found a great website at justaddressplaques.com that has some of the nicest bronze address plaques that I’ve seen around and since no one else has a bronze address plaque I plan on being the first and I’ve placed my order and should be receiving it in short order. I’m pleased with myself right now with a job well done.
When my 13 year old nephew stated at dinner over the weekend, that he was looking at a ButtKicker, I really thought that it was some type of exercise equipment. I had no idea that ButtKicker was the name of various musical pieces of equipment. I just can’t tell you how old I felt when I was put back into reality and told that I was totally uncool! Hmpf!
