Good stuff!

A Terminal Lance Coolie

Habitual Linecrosser coined a gem with that one.


Phrased another way by Charlie Murphy –

Things like escalated to the point where, you know, my man got too familiar and I ended up having to whip his ass man, you know, cause you know, he would step across the line. Habitually. He’s a habitual line stepper.


All good stuff, I’m not sure which ones to regift.


Dropping off some Christmas Gifts…

That’s the second time I saw that Christmas at the White House meme. Scary, the Ghost of Christmas Past (JFK, who was kind of not around for Christmas 1963) is on the left, while the Ghosts of Christmas Future (JFG–Just For Gays) are on the right.


I’ll just stick this one right here…We’ve all BTDT…SALUTE!

Dear Santa, could you make this happen (meme)?

P.S. If you drop them off at my house please include a super king-sized bed for me, the missus, and our guests. tyvm.

May peace and joy be yours tonight, tomorrow and the rest of the next year.


Why today’s nurturing “woke” companies ranking high in “inclusion” of their ESG score help the current economy as they do:

It’s caring and progressive (all about belonging and not evil money) remember!

A year after my retirement, and some 14 months into my new job (career? no telling), and I’ve been thoroughly enjoying Marshall Patrick’s skits: I work 63 hours a minute bud, try again #bluecollar #constructionlife #construction #trades #work (

My last civilian job saw me get $3 in pay raises within the first year. I was the youngest mechanic at the company by about five years, and even after those raises, made a whopping $12/hour. When I applied for my current job, I had no idea what a competitive wage was, so I asked for and got 50% more than I made way back when. Then last year, Johnny Morris gave everyone a $1/hour across the board raise, raised minimum wage at Bass Pro and Cabelas to $14/hour, and made the 50% discount on store brands permanent (it was 45%, still worlds better than what Walmart offers my daughter).

All that to say this, I had a performance review a few months in due to the raise, and as expected received that minimum amount. Honestly, I don’t expect anything next year, and started my LinkedIn just in case I decide to look for other employment. I appreciate the job, enjoy it most of the time (this holiday season has been “fun”, though), and don’t plan to go anywhere, but I do butt heads with management and have an ATF Compliance over retail mentality (which in my opinion is necessary for my position, even if I’m not rendering “excellent customer service” all of the time).

When certain goals are met, CLUB Card applications, Gear Guard signups, etc., they’ll go next door to Sam’s Club and buy pizza. We did get gift cards for the 50th anniversary, again, compliments of Johnny Morris, based on our longevity with the company, so I suppose that’s kind of a bonus.

Personally, I’m gambling a little bit, in hopes that as Johnny gets older, he either makes the company employee-owned or has an IPO. I don’t think they’re going anywhere, so given the chance, I’ll invest what I can.
