I Scream...

You Scream, I Scream, We all Scream for Ice Cream

Last week was my 20th anniversary with my employer and the 30th anniversary for one of my co-workers. Wow! (And the 38th anniversary for two bosses, the 39th anniversary for another boss, and the 42nd anniversary for yet another boss. WOWSA!!!)

It also was my annual ice cream social at work.

I wish I had photos to show the difference in size of ice cream containers from ten or even five years ago to now. Who knew ice cream was going on such a terrific diet!?!?! I bet each container has lost half its weight! Suffice it to say this year's even-more-microscopic containers cost even more than last year. What I bought for $90 last year couldn't be purchased for $105 this year. I had to leave out a few of the toppings.

Nevertheless, my co-workers came through, and I raised $625 for the fight against multiple sclerosis. I am less than $300 away from being a High Roller next year. !!!!!

As I've said before, there are still good people in the world, and plenty of them.

The Coolest Jersey!


  1. Wow that is a long arse time, there must be a low turn over rate at your work place. There are good people still about indeed

    1. Somewhat of a low turnover rate, Pat, for which I am very grateful. I've had a couple of jobs where that was not the case, so it's been pretty awesome working with the same core of people all these years! It's like family...

  2. Congratulations! That's a long time to stay at one job. I know, cause I was at mine for 29 years before they eliminated my job.

    1. Thank you, Charlotte! I remember when you went through that, and the emotions of freedom after the shock and discouragement wore off...

  3. strange that your icecream are geting smaller. in Sweden everything is getting bigger by the week. Not fun at all. :( We had sometning we called "tiny candy" but those peices are today at least 4-5 times their original size and are not small anymore. I stopped buying 2 years ago as I want a lot of small ones with different flavours and not a few big ones.

  4. I love that Ben & Jerry's plaster "Still a pint!" all over the lid rims.

    Great jersey, and you know that YOU are one of those good people.... :)

  5. Congrats on the anniversary.
