Never been better

I want to thank AOW, TMW, Warren and many others. I can honestly say I have never been happier in my life. There were some potholes, but each and every day is a pleasure. Those who I mentioned and many others were friends in every sense of the word. I didn't arrive to this happy place without many wonderful coworkers, friends and family. No man is more blessed than I am.

The truth is I am blessed with a job I love. I get to serve the American people each and every day. There are those who love the criminal cases, national security cases, but for me there is no greater joy than seeing ordinary couples starting a new life or reuniting parents with children. I can think of no job I would rather be doing. I feel honored to share tis moment and let the first official experience with the US government be a pleasant one. In Vermont people would not even know who helped them and in many cases I went above and beyond the call of duty to find the missing piece of a puzzle. In NYC the people know exactly who you are and most appreciate it.

I may have conveyed this story so those of you who read it just ignore it. A serviceman serving abroad made an error in his application. His case went around in circles for three years. He wasn't able to get his problem fixed when his file was tossed on my desk. In my typical style I explained the situation to peers at the top and crossed my fingers. I was shocked when the serviceman and his attorney were at my desk. He was on leave from combat and I explained exactly how the error occured and what we are doing to remedy it. The attorney said for the first time in three years I feel confident. The situation had some minor glitches, but top bosses got me expert help in some areas. Top management agreedto cut some red tape as the person lived in an adjacent district. The top boss said " there are times that things become top priority
and aiding servicemen in combat zones when they seek our assistance is at the top of the list."
I recieved a letter of thanks from this serviceman. I forwarded it to my top boss with a memo
thanking him for assisting me with this project.

Most people hate going to work. For me it is a pleasure and a unique challenge each and every day. Other than the time I spend with the Tranquil Sea and the beloved Sprite I can think of no greater pleasure.

Beakerkin,
I believe every word. My sister was an officer with the B.I.A., a Trainer then she got into Social Work which includes all the above and working with the people she loves, the Indians from Tuscon to all points in the U.S.A. She loves her work. Many times people will come up to me and thank ME! I have to tell them the difference, that it was my sister. They will comment on a case, I have no clue...and I will tell them thats was _____ and she doens't talk about her cases with family. She has to be tuff in that situation, hearing a lot of difficult situations and having nieces and nephews and a big family helps in that situation because she is so caring and loving. All the Comanche people know of her, and they are very thankful for her,they ask for "HER" and I am very proud that people do get us mixed up she is my little sister yet sometimes I rely on her as a "Big" sister!

You both love your jobs and I truly believe there are many like both of you, or we would be in a bigger situation than we are in at the moment here in the good ole U.S. of A.

Beak, you forgot to name your friend, GayEagle, and thank him for showing us all that you are a white supremacist bigot just like him.

I am going to ask AOW and TMW who know why I am laughing not reveal why? Funny, but hundreds of lawyers representing every nationality and ethnic group would
think that you are a loon.

You want to call someone a bigot while using a gay as a slur. The mathematical probabilty of you being Gay is exponentially higher than Yeagley. Obviously, you are not as evolved as you presume because you are using Gay as a slur.

A communist complaining about anyone is mildly comedic. The same warped logic would make me a communist because I have described you as a friend. Any simple reading of my comments would make that comedic.

AOW and TMW do not reveal why we are laughing at Ducky.

I do not have the temperment or the
political leanings to make it through social work. My make up is entirely wrong, but it is good others enjoy their work.
