Mrs. bloke: new Executive Assistant Worldwide Phone Answerer

Postby bloke » Tue Aug 29, 2017 9:42 am

Mrs. bloke has just been appointed as the Executive Assistant Worldwide Phone Answerer (a position in which she has unofficially served for years) with Mid-South Music, Inc. and Sellmansberger Tuba Mouthpieces™.

Mrs. bloke is eminently qualified to chat about mouthpieces, as she is the one who (after finally drifting off to sleep at 12:30 A.M.) is polled (after sudden fff blatting) as to "Which of these six back-bores sound best with this cup, rim, and tuba?"

She's also (having entered her seventh decade as a Citizen Of The World) a pretty darn good looker (and no fake-up :shock: ), and replaces a mean John Deere 777 Z-Trak deck drive belt.

Did she get a raise?

(You definitely married up, bloke. You should try to keep her around another little while.)

Normally I find Joe to be a very trustworthy guy but I am calling BS. There is no way the woman pictured above has entered her 7th decade. Who says all the good looking women are attracted to rock stars. They know tuba players are where it's at. Maybe it's time for a picture thread dedicated to hot significant others.

...or with their "too late for you, buddy" spouses:

yeah..."Mrs. bloke made some winsome kids, too. They're smart as a tack...' w-a-y too smart to work for bloke. Both girls (having been warned away from 'liberal arts' kolij degrees by someone) now own their own businesses, regularly turn down j.o.b. offers, and are doing quite well."

Mr. Pope already knows the answer to that. :P She takes all the same "holidays" :roll: (pfft) that I do.
She has actually been sick for three days, and has not stopped...a hour of daytime bed-rest here-and-there, and then back up and at it. When one of our (three, not two) children (age 8 months) was in the hospital years ago, we rotated hospital time to keep the store open. :|

WARNING: OFFENSIVE IMAGE, and likely will offend many, just as if very deeply offends me.
