Tuesday salutations, Wheelizens!

TeX --

That’s a hell of a tale; hope you recover rapidly and find a more suitable gig soon without much fuss.

================

Maaaaaan…today is the first morning in about six weeks my neck hasn’t hurt (from stress / shoulder hunching); iz nice. That L.A. gig was tough on just about everyone at JimCo. for a number of reasons. But we got through it; I have awesome cow-workers and the foreman is a wonder. (He’s also funny as hell…bet he’s at least five times funnier in Spanish.)

Foreman, while certainly no pushover, is a generally kind person. Which is why it busted me up when he remarked about a particularly annoying busybody, passive-aggressive homeowner, “Myron is a piece of shit.” (In 22 years, I’ve never heard him say that about anyone. And Myron is, in fact, a piece of shit.)

Another large project proposal is being delivered by a property manager to an HOA this evening; we’ll see how that shakes out. If we get it, I believe it’ll be significantly less stressful than the one we just completed. (Yeah -- famous last words…)

==================

Happy [checks calendar] Tuesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa!

Fatwa -- I’m glad you’re finally able to relax after that big project. Having a great work crew and great leadership makes all the difference -- just compare your story with TeX’s.

Today is Day 1 of the last week of the leadership academy. This week’s topic is Preventing and Resolving Conflicts -- how timely. The presenters have commented that these five weeks have just flown by, but to me, this has been a long slog. I would have much preferred five days in a conference room to ten half-days that start mid-morning.

Hi dv8, and Sven!

Oversleep? Hmm, I must think on this.

Another brush fire starting up in our area -- that’s 3-4 in the past couple of weeks in the same general location. No winds to speak of -- should be OK.

At some point you’d think all the fuel would be gone. As you said, at least the winds are down.

They haven’t done controlled burns in years out this way -- lot of brush every year.

Looks like it’s been knocked out -- no smoke.

Kamala Harris has a pair she isn’t going to need anymore.

If I were Biden, I sure wouldn’t take any open container drinks when she’s around.

Kamala Harris -- no surprise, but I bet it came down to who had the best smelling hair.
