O California!

Or to be more precise, O Santa Ynez Valley!

I have a new job working for a large bureaucracy, but I can’t tell you more than that because I signed something or other swearing me to secrecy.  I haven’t worked in many large institutions, and my head is spinning with wonder.  If you take the one bureaucracy I’m in and multiply it by the number of bureaucracies worldwide…well, don’t do it.  Your head will explode.

The Scout is carrying on without me—most recently in the Santa Ynez Valley.  One of my favorite places evah.

When The Scout called me from The Hitching Post, I groaned out loud.

He had a pork chop, but I have a paycheck.

    Yeah, because he gets a pork chop, a paycheck and a job that mostly takes place in the great wide open.

    Scout scores. The photos are more delicious than pork chops.

    These were all taken with film? Is he using filters? Gorgeous

    I love that area. Do we get to guess who you’re working for that swears you to secrecy? CIA, perhaps?!

    Oh Man! You went to work for the PUSD didn’t you? Well I don’t blame them for wanting you on their side. Best wishes for you in your new job! 🙂 Vote No on CC!

    @PA – Yes on film, yes with filters.
    @AE – Guess away. Here’s a hint…they advertise.
    @Houdi – Hahaha! I’ve had many fantasies about (fill in blank) to the bureaucracy that resides on (insert relevant address here).
