Friday the Thirteenth

November 13, 2009

Hi there. Been a very hectic couple of days. The new job orientation and processing was on Monday and part of Tuesday, then there was the flying. For days.

I hate flying.

Got back here on Wednesday night; having a little difficulty getting set up with everything, as these things go; I don’t know if I’ve ever had a job in which something didn’t go belly-up on the technical end of things. These always get corrected, of course, but who wants to start a job being hamstrung by some little glitch? Not this camper.

I am truly delighted by the fact that I’ve had a couple of comments on the blog so far. It’s gratifying to see the interest, whether or not the reader agrees with me. Way back when (well, from 1999 to 2007), I had an editorial cartoon online. That was fun, if not particularly remunerative. But I always liked hearing from readers, especially the ones who didn’t agree with me. Particularly when they were civil in tone. So far it looks as the commentary that disagrees with me hews to that line. Many thanks to you. No joke.

I hope to be able to post something sunbstantive soon. Thanks again for reading, and I welcome comments any time. Just keep it civil.

On the road, prepping for the new job. I know it will devastate anyone who reads this blog—except for my Alert Reader the other day (the one who pointed out my omission on CAIR), I doubt anyone reads this. No worries, I am here to speak TRUTH to THE INTERWEBS! Hope to post later on today.

A month already??!

Wow, so it’s not quite 6:00 AM, and I’ll have to leave in about an hour and a half. It’s been a very good break here. It is sad to leave my brother and his family–they have been fantastic for the past month or five weeks or however long I’ve been here. The time has slipped by very fast, which is no surprise, since it was a vacation as such, and I would have to “look forward” to going back to the Sandbox. Phil and I will have breakfast somewhere before I fly out, which is cool–we have joked a lot since we were kids about eating and food and being overeaters, but it’s the time we can jawjack that’s the best. Hopefully I will be able to continue to post stuff when I go back to work—it will depend heavily on my work load and whether or not I can take my laptop into the office. We’ll see.

Hope to be in the hotel this afternoon, ready to jump back into the work. If you pray, then please pray for my safe journey. God bless!
