Between spending a lot of time on the road and wearing my fingers to nubs writing proposals, I unfortunately haven't had much time to blog - but I did just come across this humorous bit:
Aye, indeed... we surveyors are full of humility... Even though those who behold us are heard to utter such things as,
"There goes a man whose ability to record and maintain elevation benchmarks once a year rivals that of Atlas himself. That, son, is a man far better than I."
And, if you find yourself drained from your own bitter political battle for your own County Surveyor, think:
"Well, thank God we elected a county surveyor who is free from ego, modest to a fault, and is just generally the Joe DiMaggio of land-parcel mapping and plat checking."
