  1. We’re back! When we left for vacation it was nice weather and we come back to a damp cold morning. WUWT???

    Do you have this in a file where i could get a copy?

    Liked the Oly O’s List post. Don’t like getting back to work! D.

  2. Tina says: Welcome back, D. Yes, I have this in a .jpg file and I’ll send it to you. It prints up better than it looks here.

  3. Tina, would it be possible for me to get that file too? I would like to use it in our Life Lessons Seminars. I think you write as well as this author, so maybe you should print some of your essays?

    Blessings and our love be with you this weekend and in the coming week. Don

  5. You’ve started something I’m afraid. I’m writing to ask if I can get your church safety and security documents. But, while I’m at it can I have the Pastor Bulldog book of meditations and also the .jpg file for this cool looking essay? Thank you for the great work you’re doing!

  7. This essay makes some great points but also shows how times have changed in some ways….all about men working. And the line about “even the janitor is human” as though that’s a stretch.

    He also says the thing about it not mattering who gets the credit as long as the business benefits, which is the statement you didn’t like in a few posts back. I agreed that it sounds nice but doesn’t apply in most jobs where credit for work equals promotions, bonuses and perks. But other than those things, it’s a good essay!

  8. Tina says: You’re right, W.O., about the gender issue. And the thing is that in the late 1940s there were plenty of women working! And before then too. I’m going to write about that one of these days!

    And you’re also correct that I don’t agree with the thought that it doesn’t matter who gets credit. I took that in the spirit of the rest of the essay which was more about giving everyone a break now and then and not assuming the worst.

    I’m glad you read every word though! And I’m glad you liked the overall concept of the essay. 🙂

  9. I have this original in the original frame, has a foil stamp on the back with a Chicago address.
    I lived above a bar at one point, and they had some stuff in my apartment for storage and it wound up getting mixed during my move. ANYWAY, sure glad I happened upon it … always keep it on the wall in the bathroom so I’m sure to get my daily wisdom =)
