Who You Gonna Call?

One year, my company got a new accounting program. I really wanted to transfer our (FoxPro) data directly into the test company (SQL Server) database. But the software company had a program to convert Excel files to the new program and everyone (else) wanted to be comfortable and do it that way. Master files and 2 years of transaction files and let's restructure the General Ledger along the way. I started out working normal days. But the last week, the days got longer and longer. 10 hours, 11 hours, 12 hours, 14 hours, can I hear 16? I was there at 11 pm Sunday night and our bathrooms were broken. I had to go down the hall through the warehouse. (The building is supposedly haunted by a guy who died in the elevator.) On the way back, I heard this crazy sound. (It sounded like a pipe fell off a shelf.) I started booking! I ran as fast as I possibly could all the way back! "Just because I don't believe in ghosts, doesn't mean I won't run from them!"

(Sorry my phone and email were out. It hadn't occurred to me yet to put the utilities on the credit card.)

Got to make a cake. Today is Eric's 12th birthday! : )

Twelve, wow. An important year for a Jewish boy or girl -- becoming a "child of the law" (bar or bat mitzvah).

I'm with you on the ghosts -- run like heck!
