    So .....

    I've been getting the guys to take the pager more often now. After twenty four years of being on call the guys have been stepping up to the plate. Except for last night. The guy on call said he got tickets to the Redsox and could I take the pager. No Problem I said.

    So, I'm out working on the boat after sneaking out a litle early and the Pager Goes Off. Never Fails.

    Its the Local watering hole, Al's Cafe. Someone broke the sink off the wall and they've got all the water shut-off to the place. They need me right away. I'm Pissed. There goes my afternoon. On top of which I asked my wife to get someone to go sailing with us and she says " I just want to take it easy this afternoon " ???? Its summer, its hot as hell. I'm not happy.

    So I walk into Al's with my head down and a scowl on my face and ...

    SUPRISE !!!

    My whole crew was there with beer and pizza ... Even a cake. ( O.K. enough with the fifty candles )

    A couple of friends from the supply house and even two old employees showed up.

    They got me GOOD !!!

    I've got a GREAT TEAM.

    Thanks Guys.

    Yeah, that's a good crew. But sounds like your wife lied to you. Maybe you can use that to your advantage (good luck with that).

    Still a couple of days till the actual day, right? May be more to come. Enjoy the weekend and Happy Birthday.

    The big ...5-OH !

    I have a feeling this was the beginning of a great weekend for our illustrious leader. Betty Ford (rest her soul) is saving a cot for your upcoming visit.

    I'm sure it will be short...but enjoy!

    To Scott and Andrew!

    The wind is steady and from the E,this fine day...If he isn't out sailing with the family....shame on him!
