Good morning crew,

Has everybody recovered from their holiday partying? I haven't, which is why I took today off.

Everything went off pretty much without a hitch at my house. The only problem I ran into was burning an effigy of King George. That was probably an error in judgment on my part.

But in the end the neighbors, the police and the fire department were all pretty cool about it.

Laugh it up,

Joe

"No way," my horrified six-year-old son replied. "Daddy would NEVER wear that!"

My job is in the aerospace industry, and it's always been a challenge to explain what kind of work I do.

At one gathering, I tried several unsuccessful attempted explanations before deciding to be as generic as possible. When the subject came up while I was talking with a group of guys, I replied simply, "Defense contractor."

The men nodded, and as the conversation went on, I silently declared victory to myself. Then, one of them turned to me and asked, "So, what do you put up mainly? Chain-link?"
