    I finished packing up all the contents in my office. The movers come tomorrow to take everything from the quonset hut to our new crib. My new office has ceiling to floor windows!!! And I get to avoid the moving pains as I have a planning commission meeting in the afternoon. Wooo hooo.

    Yeah but you have a view of Northern Florida (he he he)

    I'm just getting you warmed up for our billiards match in St. Pete later this year......TN and I are going to teach you a little bit of humility

    Make that northwest Florida, giggles. I admit, the windows overlook the parking lot. But they're south facing...natural light!! Give me a break here.

    I saw the quonset hut when I was there recently. It couldn't be any worse.

    What's wrong with Northern Florida? I admit that NE Florida is not always considered the most attractive part of the state but there are some beautiful areas. RJ is still going to get beat at pool come FAPA time.

    I thought we were partners? We were champeens the last time we were partners. (RJ kicking the tile floor (ouch, I shouldn't do that again), going to refill his wine glass, take a dip in the pool, have a smoke, and then come back for more abuse). I'll show you. You will regret this...... You haven't even seen The None (or is that "The Nun"), play pool yet. Are you kidding me?

    I guess it would be too depressing if I was your billiards partner... What is with everyone wanting TN as their partner...?

    Maybe we should be one big team. The One, RJ, and TN take on SC, ZG, and H . That could be fun!

    Better yet, all six of us could play elimination.....that is always a fun and quick game and you can be the worst pool player ever and still win! (SC ) The game is easy, you use the bottle to draw pills, each with a number of one of the balls on it. The number you draw is your ball and if someone else hits your ball in, your out of the game. You can hit any ball in, anywhere on the table....the game goes quickly and sometimes people pretend to hit for their ball, but miss on purpose, just to fake people out or keep their ball out of danger....fun game......The other version has us all getting two picks from the pill bottle......

    Many more games for billiards where that came from.....I own the official rule book now.......(I'm sure I'll get some grief once you all see how I play )

    RJ: I like your knicknames The Nun could be an option in the future...he he he....The None will be good after you see me play billiards .....but I think your just upset that TN is so popular...he he he......

    We finally got moved today (but there's still office furniture down on 11th Street that needs to be delivered to the new offices and I need to unpack my stuff). One of the movers was a kick in the pants. During the lunch break he napped on one of our desks. Then he promptly dropped a desk on this toe. He's a Rasta-man. Probably trying to light a spleef while moving it. I'll take my camera tomorrow and post a pic or two in the afternoon or evening (no, not of Rasta-man, but new office).

    Per the request of another Cyburbian, I've posted pics of my former and new offices in my gallery. Please be nice with your responses, we're a poor County.

    You know what they say about a clean desk;
    that it is a sure sign of a __________ mind.
    Oddball
    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    They can do wonderful things with particleboard. Be nice to me or I post the picture that you don't want the public to view. (202)

    I didn't feel like unpacking my stuff this morning. I could be something to do with the amount of wine consumed last night. But I could be wrong.

    Well, not sure if you have witnessed a ZG hissy fit yet but sounds like "posting" this picture could do it.

    I don't have "hissy fits". I have short periods of uncontrollable annoyance...

    Yes, but a guy with a cell phone is a deadly combination. For example, there are two borrachos calling me right now that won't leave me alone, regardless of how much I discourage them from disturbing the sanctity of my home. My children have been emotionally scared for life due to these two roustabouts. I have reasons to believe tha these "squirrely" individuals may have other victims in mind.
