  I am not whining or trying to get one over on anyone.
Please understand that most of the early posts on this blog were taken from letters written by me to the Editor. They were written both as informational and as a way to vent some of the frustrations that I personally face here at Club Fed.

They are strictly my personal frustrations and I have learned that the act of putting them down on paper helps to clear my mind. I do not expect any specific change in my day-to-day existence as a result of this blog, and am gratified by all the positive comments I have received. I thank everybody who stops by once in a while to read my ramblings.

I am not sure if the following thoughts made it into a recent posting or not, but they bear repeating.

I realize that all the employees here at Club Fed have a job to do, and that I am certainly not privy to all that goes into doing their jobs. So certainly my ranting, ramblings, ravings etc., etc., are not only one-sided, but also are not based on the entire facts about any given situation.

Specifically, I would like to say that although I have certainly spent a lot of time relating my experiences with the Supervisor of Recreation (SV), the fact is that he did accept several of my ideas and suggestions and certainly gave me very valuable experience in learning how to deal with a job situation in which I might be in the future, with an equally (or dare I say worse) difficult supervisor.

The fact that I recently "retired" from my recreation clerk job, and am now a unit orderly with no specific job, and "someone" tried to have me assigned to the kitchen for my last sixty days or so at Club Fed has no direct bearing on the statements I have just made.
