Rumor Has It…

15 Aug

That the greatest military campaigns began on a Monday.

That the Race to the Moon happened on a Monday.

That Wile E. Coyote caught the Roadrunner on a Monday.

Ok, those are rumors. But the fact is, today is Jay in Ames’, AKA J’Ames’ birthday!!

And here’s a song for you, buddy!

And in case you don’t get some, here’s some cake.

Have a great one, my friend!!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY J’AMES!!!!

    *smooches and squishy hugs*

    Thanks Aggie. I’ll be celebrating by testing applications, my favorite job.

    Man, if I had found a crashed liquor blimp in my backyard, I would be yelling “FINDERS KEEPERS!!” while brandishing my shotgun and telling them to GET OFF MY LAWN!!!

    Heh, Hangar 1 Vodka! Fly high with us, but get ready for the crash at the end.

    At least it wasn’t Mad Dog 20/20. I would hate to see their ad come to life.

    Despite the stop in Iowa, the White House continues to assert that this is an official presidential trip and not a campaign event.

    Yeah, right.

    By that I mean he doesn’t have to spend any of his own money.

    advantage Perry.

    He’s talking to the little people about jobs and shit. From Air Force One a bus he boarded at the Minnesota airport.

  13. Jay in Ames August 15, 2011 at 12:28 pm #

    Obama’s “Bus Tour” is using 2 buses, and Air Force One.

    I don’t think Bus Tour means what he thinks it means.

  14. Car in August 15, 2011 at 12:33 pm #

    Rush and fox are say that he bought those buses. Two of them. 2.2 million

    Just came back from the city hall, to pay water bill.

    Ten people ahead of me, of whom three also did not receive their bill (like me).

    It was a 35 minutes wait.

    Either the city forgot to mail bills, or the USPS is fucking up. I go with the latter.

  17. Dick August 15, 2011 at 1:19 pm #

    What the fuck is wrong with people who live in Irving/Los Colinas/Valley Ranch?
    They either aren’t home when they claim they’re gonna be, can’t pay for a job that’s finished, make ridiculous demands, and all of them (for some unfuckingknown reason) think they’re somehow superior to you.
    Next one of these cocksuckers that does something stupid; I’m gonna plant the sharp end of my brickhammer in their forehead.

    Happy Birthday, J’Ames! Hope you enjoy your cake…..

    Dick, the folks who treat you like that are the same ones who call you a racist because you don’t like Obama.

    You’re just not ENLIGHTENED like they are…..

    Yep, sure did, Dick, back in 89-93. First store I worked at was Brooks Fashions, and the second was Suncoast Motion Picture Co. It was across from Musicland.

  29. MCPO Airdale August 15, 2011 at 2:27 pm #

    Dick – Pretty good except for the hour I spent on the phone dealing with an idiot.

  30. Dick August 15, 2011 at 2:37 pm #

    Don’t feel bad, Chief. I spent an hour in rush hour traffic driving from Euless to Garland for some brick samples, then another 45 minutes driving to the customer’s house in Valley Ranch. She told me she’d be there, and wasn’t. Lovely!!!!!
    Of to look at another job.

  31. Dick August 15, 2011 at 2:37 pm #

    Back…
    The good news is, Stinky comes home Wednesday.

    Of course, we’ll get him Wednesday evening and Thursday morning, then he disappear off with his friends for pretty much the rest of his leave time.
    Honestly? I can’t blame him.

  42. MCPO Airdale August 15, 2011 at 3:53 pm #

  44. Jay in Ames August 15, 2011 at 3:58 pm #

    Dick, you want some coaching from my Mom on how to lay a major league guilt trip on Stinky? She could get him to stay in the house all week.

    He won’t be happy about it, though.

  45. Dick August 15, 2011 at 3:59 pm #

    Chief, will do.
    Jay, he knows I don’t do guilt trips. I’d be busted in two seconds flat.

    This is what I left at his:

    Title 26, the IRS code clocks in at 3,400,000 words. If you were to include all of the regulations since 2005, it would be a staggering 9,097,000 words.

    For context, the Holy Bible (King James) has 774,746 words.

    And make that drink a double.

  82. GuyS August 15, 2011 at 8:41 pm #

    You okay Chief?

    And that “disco” looks suspiciously like something I saw in Korea…or you saw in the PI?

    Dick, I like the “Phily rule” listed above, Seem to recall something along those lines when we were offering “loans” to tied over Sailors who had a bit too much month left before their next paycheck. If they failed to pay back on time (within a day or so on or after payday) , at least in my case, it went from “no interest” (if they were a friend) to 5%, then 10%, and up from there. Never had one over 15%.

  83. GuyS August 15, 2011 at 8:44 pm #

    Damn, tell him to bring some grecian formula home for you, after all the (new) grey hairs he just gave you….AND a premier bottle of single malt scotch as a peace offering. Which should go along way toward calming your nerves.

  84. Dick August 15, 2011 at 8:48 pm #

    Guy, before I went into the service, Dad told me to never loan another Grunt a dime.
    I didn’t, nor did I borrow one, but I saw some serious fights over twenty dollars.
    Just ain’t worth it.

  85. MCPO Airdale August 15, 2011 at 8:50 pm #

    Son had pesto at a restaurant. He figured it was OK because he loved Herself’s pesto. . . forgetting that she NEVER put nuts in HIS pesto.

  86. GuyS August 15, 2011 at 8:58 pm #

    Dick, the few Sailors who I was really close with, had only to ask and get the shirt off my back. This was for those who partied a bit to extravagantly for their paygrade (a lesson most learn early on, yours truly included….There was this blond in DC who got the majority of my money simply because I was young, dumb, and full of cum. I got nothing but a lighter wallet. Lesson learned.) And for the most part any one I loaned money to was interest free. The exceptions were those who would have charged me even more than I did if the roles were reversed. Or those who had been slow in paying before. To be sure, in the twenty some odd years of wearing the squid lid, I could probably count on one (maybe two) hands the number of times I loaned any coin out.

    And yes things changed over the years. Back in the 70’s you could have accidentally left a hundred dollar bill on your rack, and gone on liberty for the weekend or leave. When you came back the bill most likely would be gone, but if you added up all the bills and assorted change, it would equal that 100 dollars. By the mid-80’s all that would have been left on your rack would have been a memory.

  87. GuyS August 15, 2011 at 8:59 pm #

    MCPO, happy to hear he is alive and well after that bit of laps in judgement. He should still get you the scotch!

  88. MCPO Airdale August 15, 2011 at 9:04 pm #

  89. LC Aggie Sith August 15, 2011 at 9:05 pm #

    At least, until you get your hands on him.

  90. Dick August 15, 2011 at 9:07 pm #

    Chief, glad everything came out okay. Shit like that is gonna happen and it’s your job to beat him hard enough to make certain he’s prepared.

  91. MCPO Airdale August 15, 2011 at 9:09 pm #

    His peanut allergy seems to have expanded to include pine nuts, and I’m sure others as well.

  92. Dick August 15, 2011 at 9:13 pm #

    Guy, I’m happy I worked for one of my uncle’s construction crews every summer starting at the age of twelve. Well in advance, they taught me the error of being young, dumb, and full of cum.
    Those hard assed masons saved me more money growing up than I can count.

  93. GuyS August 15, 2011 at 9:17 pm #

    MCPO, remind me to tell you the tale about the AEAN (but not for long) who called the “Skipper”, “Dude”, at Captain’s Mast. The CMC and I (along with our spouses) killed off a bottle of Bailies over that one, later that night!

  94. GuyS August 15, 2011 at 9:18 pm #

    Dick I didn’t have that privilege. But I got me some learn’en, and by god, some memories *grin*

  95. Dick August 15, 2011 at 9:19 pm #

    Chief, it looks like just maybe the Navy (Stinky’s Company Commander) might just have fucked Stinky out of the rank they promised, but they still have two full days to make good on their end of the bargain.

    We shall see, and I will react appropriately when I find out.
    And yes, he did sign the extension.

    I’ll make certain to fill ya in as we go.

  100. Dick August 15, 2011 at 9:27 pm #

    It may be that the CC is pulling Stinky’s leg, or Stinky’s pulling mine, and wants to see his ol’ man have a stroke.
