Love that show. My son will be starting at the Culinary Arts Institute in the fall. I always thought he would become a Graphic Artist or something with his artistic abilities. This way he can do both.

I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way.

No one can make a Jody pie. There is only one of me to some of your delight, or disdain.

Might have a new record this week. One of my guys was called away today. He is in the National guard and will be watching water flow under a bridge in SE Wisconsin for the next several days. What a joke. I have a call into his 1st sgt. to see if they could possibly spare him for this one because I will have to cancel about 60 hours worth of work on 12 hours notice, which means we will lose the job. Or call every sparky I know and see if we can do a few all nighters again to get it done without him. This flooding is creating our own little economic boost around here. We were already busy, (most of our customers would not know an economic slow down if it pooped in their Porsche,) at least as far as their spending money is concerned. But with all this flooding it has just become crazy around here. We are bidding jobs higher and higher to cover overtime and fuel and we still keep getting them.

I believe that's called "gouging".

Some of us like to call it "profit". And they can always call someone else, or not have the work done.

Now I'm in here every evening serving chowder and ice tea

Pirate King: You took off your Captain Hook uniform!

Brad: I thought I'd put street clothes on for the drive to I.B.M. The uniform's uncomfortable.

PK: You're going there as a representative of Captain Hook Fish and Chips. Part of our image, part of our appeal
is that uniform. You know that.

Brad: You want me to put the stuff back on?

PK: Yes, I do. Show a little pride.
