Little known fact: when snack chips are packaged down at sea level and shipped up here to Colorado, the bags expand like a balloon. One time when we were driving over a mountain pass, a bag of corn chips actually exploded in the back seat with a really loud POP!

As my old pappy used to say,"If you can't cut a straight line, blame it on you dang-blasted equipment!"
Another thing you can do if you get caught making a boo boo, blame the mistake on who ever is not at work that day.
If you have to take a day off from work do not fret that you are not playing an important part of the organization or that you won't be missed...Any time you are gone during a regular work day, you play a most important function. This is when your co-workers blame you as the culprit for every mistake that happened that day at work. It is also your God-Given-Duty to miss some family functions, after all, how can you have a family function if there is no one to talk about.
I wonder if it is like this in places like Russia? Ivan is not here today. Good! Today Ivan is the designated culprit who got the copier jammed last week or Ivan was the guy who forgot turn off the coffee pot in the break room and made the coffee urn boil dry over the week end. Poor, poor old Ivan.
There now you see how valuable an employee you are, even when you are not working at your job?

In this case Berry T Bunny has submitted his budget and the Accounting mole, Marvin, seems to think Berry can do better at cutting cost for Alfred Packer park and camp ground. Do you ever wonder why it is that the government always wants to cut cost instead of finding new ways to make money? Hmmm... I guess that is just a question for the ages. Since Marvin is about half the size of Berry T Bunny (Booo-Nay) ( must be a French rabbit).
This will be continued tomorrow when Marvin and Berry start to figure how to cut government costs and still keep Alfred Packer park and Camp ground open to the public.

And yes, I am well aware that black berries do not grow in Colorado but since this is a comic strip they do grow in North Park..so there! As they say this is my little corner of the world that I go to each day and forget about all the talking heads on TV, the commercials and world strive and petulance.
Hopefully you too will find your own way to get away from the rest of the world and take a moment or so each day and just be happy with who you are and where you are in life. Peace and love etc etc..

The mountain lion's name is Thomas, named for an old cat I once had. We had several cats over the years and Tomas sounds so much better than Bootsey or Tinker.
The Watering Hole is a great place for Attitude Adjustment after a really crappy day full of fighting red tape and senseless regulations just to keep one's boss happy. Sometimes it must seem like some rules were created by people who have a quota to fill of new regulations..It is the same in almost every organization and usually the only thing that is accomplished by new idiotic rules and red tape is to cause stress with the employees or members of the organization.

Barry T Bunny (Buh-Nay) has a lot to learn in management. But to his credit he did learn everything he knows about management from watching American Biker. He also secretly knows deep in his warm and fuzzy heart that he is the reincarnation of Napoleon Bonaparte.

For some odd reason the federal regulation 9865-A2225 actually says that all wild animals on federal property are part of the federal government's inventory and are not allowed to drink, smoke, carrose with loose female animals and are not allowed to wear clothes (etc etc.).
Sid and Zak are based loosely on the two characters from the movie M*A*S*H, Hawk Eye and Trapper John and Barry T Bunny is kinda sorta along the line of this jerk I once worked for...but that is another story.
It is an old story of oil and water. Neither side can understand the other side, sort of like the Democrats and Republicans.
Will Sid and Zak cave to Bureaucratic pressure? I kind of doubt it, after all they are wild critters after all.

Government Red Tape is killing private enterprise...Maybe Sid and Zak should have just greased the park ranger's palm with some dough, kick back, moolah, bucks or green backs.
I doubt Sid and Zak will stop from making a sawbuck or two on the side in the future. Hey, a bear's got expenses to pay ...Kapeesh?

While we were camping up along the Continental Divide last month a camper told me some stories about his camping in bear country. He found that even though he would put all his food in a canvas bag and tie the bag high up in a tree the next morning the entire bag would be gone. The bears had discovered how to untie the knots holding the bags up in the tree and instead of going after the bag would untie the bag and take off with it. There is now a product on the market that can only be opened with a screw driver. Now days you can see bears walking around with screw drivers just so they can get into those "Bear Proof " containers.
