Let's Talk "Service"...!

Something a little different for you to consider this Thursday.

I become confused when I hear the word "Service" used with these agencies:

Internal Revenue 'Service'

US Postal 'Service'

Telephone 'Service'

Cable TV 'Service'

Civil 'Service'

Federal, State, City, & public 'Service'

Customer 'Service'

This is NOT what I thought 'Service' meant.

But today, I overheard two farmers talking, and one of them said he had bought a bull to 'Service' his cows. BAM!!! It all came into focus. Now I understand what all those agencies are doing to us.

You are now as enlightened as I am!

Coffee out on the patio this morning. I'm in the mood for some sweet potato pie. Want some?

Sweet potato pie - haven't had that in ages - When no one is looking, I'll have another slice!

. . . and now I know why my local electric company is Public SERVICE of NH.

The "service" the whole state.

I do love my solar panels!
