Some good, some bad

So, plans went afoul Sunday, to build the last 4 pallets. I had asked a few folks to come and join me, and to meet me outside our HQ so that we could all go over there. I got no responses, save for Swan, but when the prescribed time arrived, I was waiting, alone.

I found out later that yes, other were ready to help, but had headed out to the warehouse instead. Whoops.

So, we’ll try it again on Thursday. I’d do it Wednesday, but there’s — wait for it — rain in the forecast. Rain!

On the good news side of things, I saw a photo today, of bundles being delivered the other day. Now, I’m trying to track down the photo so I can post and share it. But I saw one. 500 to 800 bundles later, and there’s one photo — that ratio seems out of whack, if you ask me. I guess we’re better at delivering bundles than taking photos of delivering bundles.

    Hey — How many boxes do you estimate you received for this project? I wonder what they weighed. . .

    As long as the bundles get delivered, I can live without the photo, but thanks Ibol Guy for trying.

    Congratulations! You finally beat the “Idaho Bureau of Occupational Licenses” for IBOL hits on Google. I knew you could do it! Take care of your ankle, your back and everything else…. and thanks again for this awesome opportunity.

    OK – I figured out what CPT stood for, and APO, and a few other things… but what does CSM mean???? Tell Flores we think he is really great, and how much all of us appreciate his help with all things about the warehouse…

    • Margie Says:

      CSM is a Command Sergeant Major. Very few attain this rank, which implies great effectiveness in getting things done and in leading other soldiers to get things done.

      I’m sure that there is a lot more to be said, but this is a start.
      (NOT a CSM)

    It’ll get done. As for photos, they’ll have to wait. We all have good imaginations, and I have heard that Iraqui women aren’t keen on having their photos taken, anyway. Thanks, IBOL guy!

    Pictures would be fun, but not required. When I give to “charity” I never expect to hear about it after!

    I can’t tell you how much I LOVE this project and loved having been a (small) part of it. IBLOman, you are my hero! Thank you so, so very much for, well, for being you.
