The Eagle Has Landed

I had a boss once who used to tell us the mail had arrived by yelling from the shop, which had a view of the mailbox, “The eagle has landed!” On paydays, which at the time was the first working day of every month (only paid once per month), he would add the phrase, “– and he shiites money!”

Quilly is the pseudonym of Charlene L. Amsden, who lives on The Big Island in Hawaii. When she is not hanging out with Amoeba, she is likely teaching or sewing. Or she could be cooking, taking photographs, or even writing. But if she's not doing any of that, she's probably on Facebook or tinkering with her blog.

    Gattina — Ray was a walking riot. He fired me for washing his coffee cup — then called me up and rehired me, but insisted I NEVER wash it again.

    Melli — well, I’ve never forgotten it ….

    Brian — easier said than done!

    Carletta — thank you.

    Robin — it has been years since I only got paid once per month, but I have never forgotten the agony of that last week!

    Dr. John — thank you.

    Dianne — you can sit at the window and day dream.

    Raven — thank you. It is hard to go wrong taking pics of Hawaii.

    Karen — that’s what the garbage can is for …. oops!

    Photowannabe — yep. Pure, pedigreed, redneck.

    Kelly Ann — well then, thank you for the service!

    Juliana — yes. I get paid twice per month.
