    What: assuming that we might get some snow this winter, you aren't plowing any?
    Admit it; you need extra money so you can play in that Quad City Indoor Golf League.
    On the second count; it's the operator!
    Oh and welcome back after your long absence.

    So what are you saying, your other job didn't care about providing competent pt. care, with happy, well paid employees?

    I am personally appalled at that thought.

    Oh, never mind. I quit becuase of the same reason.

    West of us is Alpha, dummy!
    Admit it; you saw the writing on the wall.
    Did I tell you that I use to work with your former human resources manager?
    Now; there's a story or two.
    Glad you remember how to work a computer.

    Default Writing on the wall is right!!

    CR the writing is on the wall at the other place. I'm glad I could see through the smoke that is being blown up my former co-workers a--. I need to get with you for some of those stories on that HR person.

    Wub the conversion process has pretty much completed and all of the blood has returned to my alcohol system.

    Snorkel-brother Rob;

    Thanks for checking in. Anything you repeat I said outside these forums, I'll deny emphatically. We demand a high level of docrum around here, so please be mindful of that.

    Please give Gary G. a big sloppy kiss for me tonight. He thinks I hate him; I dunno why.

    Atlanta? There's an Atlanta in Illinois?

    I forgot to mention this - we got the new truck last night. It's ours! In our station! WOW! Like the newspaper quoted me this morning - "I think it's wonderful". I don't remember saying that but we're really excited.

    We've got 1600 people, too, except they're scattered out through 4 towns and 100 square miles. I think it's be easier if they were all in one place.

    hey, got another question. We've now got 3 pretty decent engines, a 73 w/ 500 pump, 1000 water, a 88, 750 pump, 1000 water & a 04 w/ 1250 pump & 1000 water. Our trustee president (oh, no, another trustee problem) thinks we need the 2 newer trucks at our Ashley station and the old one at the other station. I think the middle one needs to be at our 2nd station and the other 2 at the main station. Makes more sense to me. So, Dear Abby, who's right?

    Jack:
    Your plan makes absolute sense and would be more in line with what ISO recommends.
    So; you aren't going to Canada?
