Home from 5th grade graduation. So sad to watch so many adults act as children as they believe what their kid accomplishes in 5th grade will define their lives forever. Only two more years before I'm done with this bunch, but I know I'll get more of it as they age.

On a funny note, DW said that she wanted to thank me tonight. I said what for? She said for not staring at the woman's b00bs as she was completely bent over and walking her three year old out the door. The woman was wearing a black tank top, and I had a great view. Of course, I said, how did you notice? She said because she watched her dad, who was sitting right next to me, completely turn his head and watch her as she walked towards us, and after she passed, he turned his head to watch the rear, and smiled.

No, I don't have pictures. I think that would have resulted in an entirely different conversation tonight.

Glad it’s over for now.
Sorry for everyone that was damaged in the process.
Stress is an awful weapon to be so callously wielded as little more then a tactic with no regard to the damage it does.

Morning everyone..


Hmmm it appears my space bar has gone on strike too ..one end isn't responding..

Never thought I'd say this, but I can't wait to go to work today!

Other then a big clean up and empty shelves...have no idea what'll be happening today. I don't think the incomming load will help much. It will take about a week to get the store to look normal again.

You have obviously never been to Albert County New Brunswick.

Great news on the strike Brent. A big relief I'm sure.

Don't we have a rule about pictures?

I hear you on the parents, see it happening everywhere.

Hi guys, at work, will post a couple pics tonight, not as bad as it could have been.


Sales though? We cleared $203K yesterday alone. That is ridiculous.

Thanks again guys for all the thoughts and prayers and pixie dust. Let the de-stressing begin
