I just had to get on here and say "Thank you" to someone who went above and beyond and out of their way for their fellow staff the other day.

It was hot.  Like bazillions of degrees hot.
So hot my deodorant not only failed immediately but even it's ghost was obliterated in the searing heat.

Anyway, Lt Sienna pulled money out of his own wallet and sent someone to the store to buy several cases of water.  Then he loaded it all in the mail cart, dumped a bunch of ice on the top and drove all over the camp making sure that everybody had enough water to drink.

Staff that is.

We don't see that kind of thoughtfulness or appreciation very often around here.

On those horrible nights when the Warden Himself should be at the door handing out cash because we managed to survive the night all we ever get is "Why didn't you fix it sooner?"

So when someone goes out of their way to do something nice for us, we don't always know how to react.  For the most part we stand there dumbfounded with this glazed look in our eyes and ask each other "Did that really just happen?"

Anyway, here's some more thanks from me, Lt Sienna.
You are totally awesome.
And I hope one day I can do something at least half as nice as that for you.

   Let's be careful out there.


  1. Bazillions?

    By my meticulous calculations, that's the temperature of a "crapload" of suns times a "big ole' handful" of super spicy jalapeno peppers.

    1. Bryan- By my meticulous calculations, you might be low by about 12.23 degrees. But... close enough. -Grins-

  2. Replies
    1. Miz Donna- I suspect that I am, anyway. But the official results aren't in yet.

  3. It is nice to know that someone there still knows what it takes to be in a leadership position. It always seemed to me that as folk's got promoted and moved up the ranks, they forgot what it was like to be a COI. Good job LT.

  4. Um, the situation sounds (reads?) a bit like 'Parks and Recreation' Leslie Knope.

    We martt be a bit slow darn 'ere in Gondwanalaaaand - but this is the first 'free to air' TV satire from America that is aimed at the vaguely intelligent.

  5. Hello… knock, knock, knock - anyone in there!! :)
    Hope all is well in your neck of the woods, Rev.
    I miss your excellent posts.

    Cheers, Jenny

  6. This spray provides you the Mace Or Pepper Spray ability to prevent or best self defense from attack, giving you time to get away and seek help.

  7. It's nice to see, after all this time away, upon my arrival I find someone posting about Mace on your Pepper Spray blog. Why, that is just genius! And now I go. I suppose you will have a new posting up in a few months. I will check back then. Nice to see you are still here. Me too. :)
