Another holiday worked

Leave a comment

I know one thing I’m going to enjoy when I retire and that is being off for holidays. I’ve missed time with family and friends too long. And today is another one of those days. Well, I’ll make the best of it. At least I’ll be off for the Memorial Day one.

I guess I shouldn’t complain at all. It’s good to be gainfully employed at my age and still in my field. Something not everyone is as fortunate with.

Enough of that serious stuff. Once I make it through today, the week looks up if my body will cooperate. Tomorrow I have to return to a project that is due early next month. I’d also like to go get some fresh images around the county.

I ran across this past image and my mind has been focused on grilling out since seeing it. I haven’t fired up the grill in a few months now. But I did spy some sausages in the fridge that I think I’ll fire up tomorrow. I’ve really enjoyed cooking and would like to do more of it.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Keep good journalism alive. Support your local papers.
  • Starting my book reading initiative.
  • People who like playing games with me usually lose.
  • My dislike for Mondays just keeps increasing. Another thing I hope to turn around in retirement.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
