I have been concentrating on work and cardiac rehab. Things are getting tight : we lost $1 million from overall budget, our book budget halved, Middle and High school visits gone entirely; furloughs are under discussion, and what pops up today in a missive from The Director, may She live long? Early retirement, a new policy. Human Resources will be in contact with individuals eligible for this year's festivities.
Well, if the HR dementers find me, I will suck it up and put the Master Plan into operation. Whatever that is. Large food garden, get crackin' on my threatened novel, and assorted other retirement projects will keep me occupied. I hope.
Once the tedious dust settles , I promise some screeds on fun stuff again: Henry Knox, a very interesting Revolutionary officer; a journey to New England across my family's Styx; where the stimulus money is going; and triplanes.
