Fish-Fred

All is quiet

The office is very, very quiet this afternoon. It's the day of the office picnic and softball challenge (Data Section vs. Studies Section), and while I went to the lunch I skipped the ball game. I think there may be 4 or 5 other people around.

The picnic was nice--monster burgers, hot dogs, and eventually veggie burgers after someone went back for them. I brought my own carrots and an apple, knowing that the only side offering would be chips. Of course the burger should probably have been 3 servings for me and I ate the whole thing...must have a nice salad for dinner. And I chatted with a couple of techs who recently transferred from Colorado whom I hadn't met before and enjoyed the sun and cool air. Oh, and got to see Tim, my supervisor who retired in January. He's looking good, and enjoying retirement.
