Great news, Bob finally did it. He is a new member of the greatest fraternity of brothers, called husbands. He now shows off his ball and chain to all that are interested, and when asked, How is married life , Bob? He answers in a knowledge voice, "ain't nothing like it!". We are trying to figure out what exactly he means by this statement. In our office we found out Bob was a changed man, as soon as we saw his first lunch. He had a egg salad sandwich, with potatoes chips in a sealed bag and a perfect banana. We immediately knew that someone had done his lunch with lots of love. Bob used to bring to work, everyday a squashed peanut butter and jelly sandwich, which he ate with his delicious coffee. Thank you Sandy you have made a new man out of our Bob.

"We have other words to describe this"

Surfing The Web A new fad is taking hold of our branch. When you speak to Joe about surfing, he generally talks about, fiber glass boards, cool waves, and staying away from sharks.

The web has hit our members for good, it is just a matter of time before the entire office is on the web.
