Picture of the Day

I have a new job. It’s in retail. I love it.

WMFor now, I’ve abandoned the idea of returning to my last career field, Employee Benefits Consulting, or a Life & Health Insurance Broker. I’ve enjoyed the last eight years off, but it’s time to go back to work.
I love my boat, the boating hobby, boating people, being on the water and helping others with the same things. I love learning about boating and the equipment.  I have all my life. If you don’t believe me, ask my parents at what young age I started talking about joining the US Coast Guard.
I think that my with my recent USCG Captain’s License, I have proven that I have the knowledge and experience to boat safely without generally drowning anybody.
So, I got a job at West Marine.  Yes, it’s what everybody says is low wage.  Many people think retail is for people who can’t get a “real job”. It’s tiring to be on my feet all day, but it’s good exercise. I’ll work evenings and weekends.
But I help people with products for their boat and I love it.

Groan of the day

Three handsome male dogs are walking down the street when they see a beautiful, enticing, female Poodle.

The three male dogs fall all over themselves in an effort to be the one to reach her first, but end up arriving in front of her at the same time.

The males are speechless before her beauty, slobbering on themselves and hoping for just a glance from her in return.

Aware of her charms and her obvious effect on the three suitors, she decides to be kind and tells them, “The first one who can use the words ‘liver’ and ‘cheese’ together in an imaginative, intelligent sentence can go out with me.”

The sturdy, muscular black Lab speaks up quickly and says, “I love liver and cheese.”

“Oh, how childish,” said the Poodle. “That shows no imagination or intelligence whatsoever.”

She turns to the tall, shiny Golden Retriever and says “How well can you do?”

“Um. I HATE liver and cheese,” blurts the Golden Retriever.

“My, my,” said the Poodle. “I guess it’s hopeless. That’s just as dumb as the Lab’s sentence.”

She then turns to the last of the three dogs and says, “How about you, little guy?”

The last of the three, tiny in stature but big in fame and finesse, is the Taco Bell Chihuahua.

He gives her a smile, a sly wink, turns to the Golden Retriever and the Lab and says, “Liver alone. Cheese mine.”

Well, I haven’t posted anything for awhile, so I thought I should.  So, a quote…

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.
