Sick Day

Leave a comment

I was thinking about not doing a post today because I was under the weather. Let me rephrase that, I was sick last night and this morning and I’m not feeling 100% yet but had a burst of energy and thought I’d attempt something.

So I went looking for a photo being I didn’t shoot anything new today and ran across this image which reminded me I haven’t been over to visit my parents in a while. I think I’ll cure that this Sunday. The wreath laying won’t take place till the following week and its really beautiful when they are all out but time gets tighter as the days pass so I’m going to go when I have time.

And the next 3 weeks are packed so the time is now. I’m going to have to get ahead and prepare some posts for the next three weeks because work is really kicking into high gear. And with elections and olympics next year its going to be nuts.

Working in the news business has some interesting years. After 40 plus years I’m looking forward to the day I’m out of the rat race in a few years down the road. I just heard today that a few more old timers have left the company, which reduces my pool of people I even know down even further.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • The weight scale is now my friend.
  • I’d like to say that age discrimination isn’t real but once you get older you will find out it is.
  • Working on your skills is a never ending job.
  • I’m sick of working holidays.
  • Stand up for what you know is right. Even if it has a price.
