Glad to report that everyone is safe

If you have followed the news last night or live in the Louisville Area you know that we were hit with storms yesterday.  We are glad to report that everyone is safe.  One of the longest touch downs of the tornadoes was very close to many of our family members.  Lucky only power outages and trees down.  It appears that one tree hit a house but again no one was hurt.

Armour Standing in 1980

The Armour-Louisville facility located in the near downtown sector of Louisville, Kentucky was purchased from the Klarer Company in September, 1969.  This facility, consisting of some 337,420 square feet of production and storage space, situated on 14.93 acres, was acquired at a total cost to Armour of slightly more than $13,000,000.

Based on today’s standards, the Louisville facility is unique in a number of ways:

  1. This is the last Armour Integrated Plant, housing both Processed Meats Company and Fresh Meats operations.
  2. Having previously been a Corporate Headquarters for Klarer Company, we have an abundance of office facilities which are currently utilized by various sectors of the Armour Sales units.  Sales, Accounting and Computer Offices presently locate at this facility are:
    1. Retail Sales Zone Manager’s Office
    2. 2 Retail Sales District Manager’s Offices
    3. 3 Retail Sales persons
    4. 1 Food Service District Sales Manager’s Office
    5. 4 Food Service Sales persons
    6. 3 Turkey Division Sales personnel
    7. 3 Fresh Meats Volume Sales persons
    8. 19 Major Accounting Center personnel
    9. 18 Computer Department personnel
    10. 14 Louisville Plant Accounting Department personnel

The fact that we are fully Integrated unit allows the Processed Meats Company a decided advantage in so far as both availability of processing raw materials and quality freshness.  These raw materials.  Once inspected and approved by Quality Control, are transferred to the Processing facility on a hour-to-hour bases.  IN addition to insuring freshness of such raw materials, we are relieved of the cost of freight and handling as well as combo bin charges.  Thus resulting in an overall benefit to both companies.

Other benefits derived from this type arrangement is through the join utilization of both Boiler Room facility as well as Motive Power, refrigeration, etc.  This too tends to work to the benefit of both the Processed Meats and Fresh Meat Companies.

Educational Living in the South! (No Kentucky in this list!)

Subject: It’s educational living in the South!


A group of Alabama friends went deer hunting and paired off in twos for the
day. That night, one of the hunters returned alone, staggering under the weight of an eight-point buck.
“Where’s Henry?” the others asked. “Henry had a stroke o’ some kind.
He’s a couple of miles back up the trail,” the successful hunter replied.
“You left Henry layin’ out there and carried the deer back?” they inquired.
“A tough call,” nodded the hunter.
“But I figured no one’s gonna steal Henry!”

The secretary thought a moment, and then replied, “Everthang but my


A senior citizen in Louisiana was overheard saying … “When the end of the

A man in North Carolina had a flat tire, pulled off on the side of the road,
and proceeded to put a bouquet of flowers in front of the car and one behind
it. Then he got back in the car to wait.
A passerby studied the scene as he drove by, and was so curious he turned
around and went back. He asked the fellow what the problem was.
The man replied, “I got a flat tahr.”
The passerby asked, “But what’s with the flowers?”
The man responded, “When you break down they tell you to put flares in the
front and flares in the back.
I never did understand it neither.”

… and that’s how the fight started …

One year, I decided to buy my mother-in-law a cemetery plot as a Christmas

The next year, I didn’t buy her a gift.

When she asked me why, I replied,

“Well, you still haven’t used the gift I bought you last year!”

And that’s how the fight started…..


My wife and I were watching Who Wants To Be A Millionaire while
we were in bed.

I turned to her and said, ‘Do you want to have sex?’

‘No,’ she answered. I then said,

‘Is that your final answer?’

She didn’t even look at me this time, simply saying, ‘Yes..’

So I said, “Then I’d like to phone a friend.”

And that’s when the fight started…


I took my wife to a restaurant. The waiter, for some reason, took
my order first.

“I’ll have the rump steak, rare, please.”

He said, “Aren’t you worried about the mad cow?”

“Nah, she can order for herself.”

And that’s when the fight started…..


My wife and I were sitting at a table at her high school
reunion, and she kept staring at a drunken man swigging his
drink as he sat alone at a nearby table.

I asked her, “Do you know him?”

“Yes”, she sighed, “He’s my old boyfriend. I understand he took to
right after we split up those many years ago, and I hear he hasn’t been
sober since.”

“My God!” I said, “Who would think a person could go on
celebrating that long?”

And then the fight started…


When our lawn mower broke and wouldn’t run, my wife kept hinting
to me that I should get it fixed. But, somehow I always had
something else to take care of first, the shed, the boat,
making beer.. Always something more important to me. Finally she
thought of a clever way to make her point.

When I arrived home one day, I found her seated in the tall
grass, busily snipping away with a tiny pair of sewing
scissors. I watched silently for a short time and then went into
the house. I was gone only a minute, and when I came out again
I handed her a toothbrush. I said, “When you finish cutting the
grass, you might as well sweep the driveway.”

The doctors say I will walk again, but I will always have a limp.


My wife sat down next to me as I was flipping channels.

She asked, “What’s on TV?”

I said, “Dust.”

And then the fight started…


Saturday morning I got up early, quietly dressed, made my
lunch, and slipped quietly into the garage. I hooked up the
boat up to the van and proceeded to back out into a torrential
downpour. The wind was blowing 50mph, so I pulled back into the
garage, turned on the radio, and discovered that the weather
would be bad all day.

I went back into the house, quietly undressed, and slipped back
into bed. I cuddled up to my wife’s back; now with a different
anticipation, and whispered, “The weather out there is terrible.”

My loving wife of 5 years replied, “And, can you believe my
stupid husband is out fishing in that?”

And that’s how the fight started…


My wife was hinting about what she wanted for our upcoming

She said, “I want something shiny that goes from 0 to 150 in about
3 seconds.”

I bought her a bathroom scale.

And then the fight started…….


After retiring, I went to the Social Security office to apply for
Social Security.

The woman behind the counter asked me for my driver’s License to
verify my age.

I looked in my pockets and realized I had left my wallet at
home. I told the woman that I was very sorry, but I would have
to go home and come back later.

The woman said, ‘Unbutton your shirt’.

So I opened my shirt revealing my curly silver hair.

She said, ‘That silver hair on your chest is proof enough for
me’ and she processed my Social Security application.

When I got home, I excitedly told my wife about my experience at
the Social Security office. She said, ‘You should have dropped
your pants. You might have gotten disability too.’

And then the fight started…


My wife was standing nude, looking in the bedroom mirror.
She was not happy with what she saw and said to me,

“I feel horrible; I look old, fat and ugly. I really need you
to pay me a compliment.’

I replied, “Your eyesight’s damn near perfect.”

And then the fight started……..


I rear-ended a car this morning…the start of a RE AL LY bad day!

The driver got out of the other car, and he was a DWARF!!

He looked up at me and said ‘I am NOT Happy!’

So I said, ‘Well, which one ARE you then?’

That’s how the fight started.
