READ ALL ABOUT IT
Hester Borsheim told us of the recent passing of this writer's one-time babysitter, Hazel Fleger, in Edmonton. She was a nice person and a long-time friend of Hester's mom, and a sister to Ken Fleger, who many will remember from Drumheller Miners days.
Hazel overcame a minor handicap during her life- time, and fluorished, always carrying a big smile, and was a wonderful person.
Rest easy, old friend.
That philosopher Doug Wade came up with this one. "Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea".
According to the morning news up to 80,000 federal civil servants have been experiencing some sort of payroll glitch lately. A new payroll system has been adopted by the Liberals (and what was wrong with the old system?) leading to this problem where civil servants are not being paid!
In this writer's recollection, this has never happened before. Serious situation to say the least, and probably won't be quickly solved.
Wonder if the feds are short of money?
Must be a few beaver families going up and down the river asking "Where did our house go?". Over the past months we have watched the beavers build three dams at different locations, only to then have them float away since the water level came up Sunday.
You can't make this stuff up department..... it was reported on the evening news the other day, that French President Francois
Hollande is under scrutiny for hiring a barbier as part of his office expenses, for $14,000 per month. Now, hard as that may be to understand, or justify, this
barbier apparently is on call 24 hours, travels with Hollande, and basically had to abandon his own shop to work for the French government as a civil servant.
And after looking at the photos of Hollande and his receding hairline, it is easy to see that this guy will eventually be out of a job, and probably will receive a pension. Both gentlemen better hope that Hollande gets re-elected.
OK, now we understand.
