There are days when things just don’t go right. Yesterday and this morning were like that. The park magazine editor had an article that she wanted to fit into one page. Unnnnh. Squeeze. Just didn’t make it. We tried different layouts. Nope, no go. As I said to her, it was like trying to fit a two quart pickle into a one quart jar. She didn’t want it to run over onto a second page. Aarrggh! I was getting tired of looking at the darn thing.

Finally she edited it down - a little - and itjustmadeit. Whew.

Time for something funny --

A large company, feeling it was time for a shakeup, hired a new CEO. This new boss was determined to rid the company of all slackers. On a tour of the facilities, the CEO noticed a guy leaning on a wall. The room was full of workers and he wanted to let them know that he meant business!

The new CEO walked up to the guy leaning against the wall and asked, "How much money do you make a week?"

A little surprised, the young fellow looked at him and replied, "I make $300.00 a week. Why?

The CEO then handed the guy $1,200 in cash and screamed, "Here's four weeks' pay, now GET OUT and don't come back."

As the young man hastily walked out the door, feeling pretty good about himself, the CEO looked around the room and asked, "Does anyone want to tell me what that goof-off did here?"

From across the room came a voice, "Pizza delivery guy from Domino's."
