Becoming an honorary Cobb County retiree is as good as it gets
Besides, if I'm not careful I could have so many organizations clamoring to have me be a part of them that I wouldn't have time to pursue my two enduring passions: Working for world peace in our lifetime and learning to play the sousaphone.
Up until now, I've not been offered the opportunity to be an honorary member of anything that I can recall. That is partially my fault. I long ago adopted the philosophy Nike Air Max Tavas Dark Blue
As if the Cobb County commissioners don't have enough things to worry about these days with TSPLOST, stadium bond approvals and a petulant newspaper headquartered in Dunwoody, I have a new one for them. I have been named an honorary member of the Cobb County Retired Employees Association.
My membership doesn't include pension benefits or a lapel pin and I will have to pay to attend the Christmas dinner, but I'll take it. This is a crowd that will Nike Air Max Flyknit 2015 Sale help my seedy reputation immensely, even if I don't do much for theirs.

That doesn't seem to be the case with the CCREA. Their president, David Stone, a retired Cobb County police officer, says they keep inviting me back to see if I might actually make sense one year. That cut to the quick.
I am retired from whatever morphed out of BellSouth Corporation and about the only time I hear from the company is a monthly feel good electronic newsletter with a lot of politically correct smiling faces on the cover. The fact Nike Air Max 2015 Pink Pow
In my first official act as an honorary retired employee, I would politely suggest that somebody from county government make the monthly meetings of the Cobb County Retired Employees Association a priority. I don't think in the nine years I have appeared at their meetings I've seen anybody from the county there except at election time. That's not good.
I am sure the commissioners and assorted management are thrilled beyond words that I am now an honorary member of the Cobb County Retired Employees Association and can meddle even more in the county's affairs that I do today. You have better believe that I am proud to be a part of the group. And to think it only took nine boring speeches and upstaging the undertaker.
to the Cobb retirees at their monthly meeting at the West Cobb Senior Center. I figured that was because I am a dynamic speaker with a great sense of humor whose opinions are widely read and much admired and the members couldn't wait for me to dazzle them with my wit and wisdom.
the corporation is about to change the provision of our health care plan is never mentioned. We have gotten some correspondence about the proposed changes, but based on my corporate experience, the information was written by the Human Resources Department and approved by the lawyers and is a bit obfuscated, to be kind.
If I did nothing else as a county poobah, I'd make it a point to stop by each and every month and thank the retirees for what they did to make this county as good as it is and let them know their efforts are appreciated.
Last year, I stepped in at the last minute because their scheduled speaker, an undertaker, had to cancel. I was terrific. Great jokes. Amusing anecdotes. Witty political observations. I was feeling pretty pleased with myself until I realized that being funnier than an undertaker isn't exactly the hardest thing in the world to do.
I'm not speaking for my friends in the CCREA, but the conversation at their meetings leads me to believe they have some of the same concerns about their own pension and benefits. (Remember, those of you working for the county today will be retirees one day. Treat retirees as you will wish to be treated.)
of Groucho Marx who said, "I don't care to belong to any group that will accept people like me as a member." I am very discriminating.
Retired employees of any organization be it government or business are the foundation upon which the current generation stands. Sadly, retirees are viewed by many computer driven bean counters as "cost causers." We don't bring revenue into the organization, but we put a dent on the bottom line.
In fact, retired employees can be a great asset. To many in the community, they are still identified as a part of the team and people still seek their opinions on issues. Keeping them up to date should be Job One. Not to mention that they have a loyalty that seems to be missing on both sides of the table in many organizations these days.
