A Case of Mistake-Jem Identity

Sooo, at a meeting regarding county trail maintenance and interpretive signage, the executive assistant to the commissioners called me a jem. Me.
This is a true story as told by a preservationist of my acquaintance and admiration. I inclined my head respectively in thanks, the whole time thinking they've got me mixed up with some other tall lanky bastard who likes to play outside.

    Cheers,

  2. Step to hell. Yeah. Fear I've taken that one long ago, back before Nixon, etc. I despise these people, those who would vote for trump, with the heat of a volcano.
    Man, I would have like to have thought, back when I was your age, that things would be different when I was in my seventies.
    It makes me look differently at nuts, or what I thought were nuts, differently.

    cheers,
    Mike
