The Joys of Bureaucracy

One of the (many) joys of working in the bureaucracy is that sometimes our efforts to communicate are overwhelmed by our need to describe what is truly ineffable.

For example, consider this statement from a nearby Purchasing Department:

"The focus of the Division is now on strategic procurement rather than the tactical processing of paperwork."

I must admit that in all my 25 years as a bureaucrat, I have never actually considered the tactical processing of paperwork.

Clearly a failure of imagination on my part.

Long Time Friends

Jane and Gail

Jane has been our friend for many years. She saw a sweater Gail knitted for a three year old friend of ours and wanted one just like it. She came by today to pick it up, and was delighted with it. Many smiles and much laughter!

I love dogs. I love them all. Here are some dogs I've come across in the last few years. Some were at a Rare Breed Dog Show. Others are part of my life.
