Three Months Shy Of Ten Years And We Meet Again (12/13/2016)
Thank you Robin for arranging this great get together... Not everyone made it but some of us did! We did, however, catch up on those missing... We told stories about them that can't be repeated here... After all, it is a "child safe website!". Let's get down to reunion monkey business!
But First, Let's Remember The Past Beginning Sixteen Years Earlier!
Moving Forward Ten Years....
Right around the corner from Boeing... We spent many hours in here!
At Paul's age the bottles are beginning to look larger than life
A cozy place to meet and greet
Robin was first one here so we got caught up...
After all, it has been almost two or three days since we last saw her!
Remember: "Christmas gift suggestions: To your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance. To a friend, your heart. To a customer, service. To all, charity. To every child, a good example. To yourself, respect." -- Oren Arnold
We were sooooooo happy to see Teresa and Georgia and
That's Bobbie (hiding in the back)
Pam showed up so we knew it was going to be a wild time at the old bar tonight!
Paul and Hal were in adjoining offices from 1999 through mid 2006
(We kept each other sane and fought off the goofy management team!)
There is a "Quality" pair to draw to!
When this lady showed up on site, the software people would scatter!
Pam knew what the software guys were up to!
Pam gets a big hug from all of us... She had to leave early
to take care of one of her children... See you again SOON!
Remember: "Christmas ... is not an eternal event at all, but a piece of one's home that one carries in one's heart..." -- Freya Stark
We noticed than when "T" came in the bar staff began counting the tables and chairs
True Story Time! - Years ago, we had a large meeting with 100 customers in a high security conference room and the newly installed HIGH COST public address system went out. Deader than a doornail! The "IS" Department scrambled for 30 minutes to no avail. Management announced a 20 minute break!
Paul and Teresa looked at each other and said "LET'S DO IT!"
We jumped in Paul's car and drove to Radio Shack... Yes, Radio Shack. Paul got a PA system and Teresa got the microphone. We paid for it (a whopping $100 as I recall), drove back tot he plant, walked through security (with them yelling and screaming "You can't do that")!
Teresa ran interference and we went directly to the conference room!
We set up the $100 PA System right before the meeting began again and they used it the rest of the day!
The IS department finally got their $$$$$$ system working the next day!
Dr. Spurgeon we presume!
Just enjoying life and the old stories
Sue is laughing because she knows they really happened!
Great times with great people!
Laurie C joined the gang... She has been retired for a while now... Looking great!
The famous Laurie salute (given to most of the "management" staff)
A pair to draw to!
Paul and Sue return home but first, check on the supply of Christmas hats!
