Wednesday and hump day once again!


It is 66 degrees this morning and may be one of those overcast, rainy days. Alberto is supposed to bring us some rain over the day today. A quick glance at the radar and it sure looks like there will be some rain. Lots of yellow stuff over my part of the state now and that is ok, we need the rain. So, I have some stuff to do today, including checking on how my retirement may go in a while. There is a retirement seminar this morning that I plan to attend. I am not at that point yet, but sure am closer than before and it will be here before I know it. Kinda looking forward to it to tell you the truth. I have been working since I was about 15 and that puts it at nearly 43 years now. Seems to me it is about time to think about backing down some. Now, I do not intend to quit working, just not full time and more on my terms than before. Life is surely slipping away from me and now is the time to do the planning on how you will spend what you have left. Something to think about anyway.
Wow, what a friggin let down it was to attend that silly meeting this morning. I already knew most of the stuff that I went out in the downpour to hear. Not to mention the campus of the college where the meeting was held is a bitch to park on. There are thousands of spaces, but most are marked as "reserved" so if you use those, they will ticket you or tow your car. So, I parked a couple of blocks away, had to walk in the driving rain of Alberto the tropical depression who just pissed all over us this morning. Now don't get me wrong, we needed the rain and all that but what I did not need was to have to walk in it and get soaked from head to toe. Yes, I did take an umbrella but with my feet getting soaked from walking in the little rivers all over the place and the wind driving the rain, my pants got wet so most of me was at least damp.
Ok, no more of those meetings for me, I can tell ya. Went by the office to check on things and nothing happening there! No news from the wife or lawyer today so that is all quite.
I went to breakfast and had lunch at my favorite little place that is now history. They closed the doors at 2pm today and will not be open anymore. Sad, the people were really nice and I enjoyed eating there over these last 9 months. Sorry to see them go!
I will be heading out for supper tonight with my friends at the local AARP club. We meet once a month for a dinner meeting and have a wonderful supper for only $12 if you can believe that. I mean it is a full menu of some really great food including drinks and desert. Now, if you want a cocktail, that is extra so you have to drink tea or coffee or water if you do not want a toddy! LOL
Another great dinner and meeting with the over the hill gang! LOL These are really good folks and fun to be around. Not like the stereotypical older generation you may see in other settings. We had prime rib and grilled salmon, plus all the with-it you would want. Salad, bread, veggies, and all that good stuff! I like it and as I said, you can not find a better dinner of that quantity and quality for that price anywhere!
Well, it is about 9:45pm so I am gonna put this post to bed. Nite, nite, peeps, sleep well and save some energy when you can.
