Leadership and Government Conference

In case you missed the Get away reveal earlier this morning,
Sarge and I are in Hawaii attending a Leadership and government conference.
What a busy day...we had to get up at 0'dark 30 to be ready for  
8 am role call

Sarge kept his nose to the grind all morning..taking in every word.
I my eyes glazed over about 10 minutes into the opening remarks.  I was in desperate need of A nap, A nip or  A nipitini or all of the above.

We arrived back from lunch to find the room empty
Evidently those government types take LOOOOOOOng lunches

The first afternoon seminar's topic was

Pros and cons of multi critter government

Paws down my comment that 
Four paws are better than 2 hands
was met with such approval we adjourned early. 

Next Seminar was Pensions: Pawsome Retirement Options
A. IRAs: I(ntelligent) R(esource) A(pplication)s
B. 401K-k-k: a Race to raise Pension funds for retiring kitties and K9s
Sarge and I watched a great video presentation
on opportunities for retiring government personnel.
I was I thought I'd be sitting around on my royal tush all day after my term as Mayor was over.

All the boring meetings were concluded at 4 pm ....
Jumpin' Catfish they rolled out the red carpet and 
the fun began.
