Sure it is!


Reminds me of a few years ago when Steven Tyler sang it before the Indianapolis 500... and he replaced home of the brave with home of the Indianapolis 500. But it was really done at such a high pitched shreik you couldn't really understand it too well anyway.

Communicating with a former co-worker now in that store to see what the word is...it's news to him too, so everyone is keeping it mum.

I'm guessing that might be what you were referring to? Doesn't matter who's playing or what the score is. It's just what they do. You can't just not do it because you're losing.

And you'll never hear me yelling IU sucks or Boiler Up or anything else during a national anthem. I don't have a problem with anybody cheering for their team, but that is not the time for it.
That must have been it. The anthem thing was totally uncalled for. I don't care who you root for it is disrespectful. I apologize for those boneheads.

Will "walking briskly" count?

Except the last line, where they'ed replace "and the home of brave" with "and the home of the Jags." Worse yet, they would scream Jags as loud as they could. Really pissed me off every time I went there.

you know what else pi$$es me off too... when they don't sign it the right way and have to sing it 'their' way. Sing the song how it was intended.

Might be, it's a busier store then our current one. There are a LOT of businesses (Big Canadian Tires, Shoppers Drug Mart, Metro grocery etc)in that plaza, I see weekends as crazytown.

DW and the district manager agree I thrive in big busy stores, so that works for me.

Hey, I almost got that out with a straight face, too!

The hits just kept on coming yesterday. I lead a small group in our church, and one of the guys called me last night in hysterics. Spent 2.5 hours on the phone with him--basically, his marriage is a grease fire. The problem is, both he and his wife are leveling all sorts of malicious accusations against each other and I have no idea where the truth lies. Hard to make any progress when each person is trying to get you to take sides against the other.

What day is it, anyway? I'm a little out of sorts this week.

Very kind of you to try to lend a hand. Sorting through that is tough situation to be in.

Ugh. But at least your church is paying you the big bucks to lead this group, right?

Agreed.

Man Law. If ever asked to perform National Anthem, sing it the right way.

Second?

I'm sure you're doing your best and excellent stewardship on the time commitments. It sounds like these two need more individual help. Hopefully, your pastor is working with them or referring them out for counseling.

Running for those reasons is acceptable. Capt Jack usually figures something out before 10K.

Fairly disappointed. But, she's resilient and perked up quickly once she saw the most important thing - dinner spread included hot dogs.
