And you are right about the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. I don't believe they could patch a tire without the tire exploding. Of course it would take 5 years for them to even get to the tire because of all of the meetings and planning they have to do to do anything at all. :x

My experience with the Corps of Engineers left me with the impression that they are nothing more than a Republican political rubber-stamp. When it comes to wetlands, the USDA-NRCS puts far more limitations on farmers than the Corps of Engineers puts on real estate developers, with vastly greater environmental consequences from real estate development.
As a matter of fact, the sun DOES shine out of my ...

They were the same when the Democrats were in office. They do what ever the administration in office wants. They have nothing to do but follow orders no matter who makes the order.

Mrs C and I went to the solicitors today to talk about power of attorney in case one of us went crazy (in my case, being even crazier than wearing a skirt :lol: ). We both wore knee-length A-line denim skirts, not by design, it just happened that way.
The solicitor looked at us and made a comment about us dressing for the summer. That was it, and we got on with the legal stuff. What was really nice, he wasn't wearing a suit and tie, just casual clothes with an open-neck shirt. I felt more relaxed with him like that.

This week at the local deli, where I go on a regular basis, wearing a knee length skirt and polo top. The lady serving commented that it was a nice day for wearing shorts!, there was no way that the skirt could be mistaken for shorts, selective blindness?
