Time to get serious

So, 2006 is upon us. One last day off today before returning to the grind (grind? We don't need no stinkin' grinds! We're retired). Funny how even in retirement we still recognize holidays and so-called days off. In truth, retirement offers no holidays, no days off, no vacations. I've worked harder in the last year of retirement than in 40 previous years of working for a living.

So, 2006 is upon us. One last day off today before returning to the grind (grind? We don’t need no stinkin’ grinds! We’re retired).

Funny how even in retirement we still recognize holidays and so-called days off. In truth, retirement offers no holidays, no days off, no vacations. I’ve worked harder in the last year of retirement than in 40 previous years of working for a living.

On Tuesday, when the shortened “work week” starts, I tackle the mess called the Blue Ridge Creative studio at The Jacksonville Center. It’s a royal mess and will take more than one day to restore to at least organized chaos.

Then there’s about a half-dozen printing jobs that need attention and stories which much be covered for The Floyd Press and photos to edit from last week’s basketball games.

And I’m revamping Capitol Hill Blue and trying to get American Newsreel back up to speed and hoping to launch FloydCounty.Com.

Great. The new year is two days old and I’m already at least a month behind.

  1. Barb, you must be referring to our “Grand Poo-Bah”, who I too follow with great interest. I, like a lot of us, am a recovering alcoholic. 10 years. None of us can miss the unmistakable signs. As Don points out, it is comical, however, not in one who needs a clear head to run the country. Leno, and the rest of the late night fare, are great at poking fun, it makes us laugh. But you would think that Congress would take him, into their quarters for a private conversation, and tell him, it’s either an evaluation or you’re out of here. The U.S. is filled with alcoholics that are still practicing, they see nothing wrong with him. Those that know nothing about alcoholism, think we, that do know, are a bunch of Bush bashers. What is needed is the trained mind and eye of a good shrink. But one needs to put bugs in those ears that are closest to Bush, and able to do something without retaliation from him. The media can say all they want, but he is in denial. As long as he is, nothing short of an intervention will work. And that is iffy. I feel your frustration, believe me, I do, and so do thousands of us in recovery.

Keeping time around the world

In a period of my adult, professional, life, I spent many days (and nights) on planes flying around the world. For many of those years,
