Calendar? Hmmmmm.

Is it going to be anything like the "Men of the UPS" Calendar? I liked that one!

I can't show my retirement duds. I'm not retired yet. 66 more work days. But I do have the same outfit, more or less.

I have seasonal employment. I won't know what it feels like until I see the school buses go by and I'm not there. It will be a 10 week delay.

I think that's pretty typical. My 88 year old father still finishes his signature with MD even though he retired at 60. MD comes with a lot of work & sacrifice, so I wouldn't begrudge them the recognition. My 2...

We saw LOTS of gators on south Tamiami Trail in the drainage ditches

you can also see manatees at the Fort Myers electricity plant.

the spoonbills are indeed the stars of the show
