Something weekend this way comes

Mr. Weekend, come here, I want to see you. (That’s a slight paraphrase)

Scottish-American engineer, academic, and inventor of the telephone, Alexander Graham Bell, was born on this day in 1847 (died 1922).

We’ve made it to another Friday.

I could go on with this theme.

Dear Weekend, I just called to say I love you.

I’m just trying to see now many cultural references I can misappropriate into one post.

If you’ve been reading here regularly, you’ll know that I won’t be seeing weekends for a good while. I’m back to my weekend job at Kings Dominion for the season.

My reasons are my own. Among them, I’m working toward retirement.

I’m not seeking pity. I enjoy working at the park.

Save your pity for Monday through Friday.

I jest.

Slightly.

I’ll also be doing some fun things this weekend, including getting some writing done, maybe getting some yard work done, a rehearsal or two, and seeing my wife’s show one more time on closing weekend..

It’s all good. Seriously.

Tuesday and Wednesday of next week I have my performances of The Day the Earth Stood Still with On the Air Radio Players.

As far as I know, that’s my last scheduled performance until the fall audition season picks up. That’s by choice because of my amusement park schedule.

And don’t get me wrong. I’ll be taking some time off here and there to get in some needed recreation and to work on some other projects.

You do what you have to do.

The thing about time is that we’re all given the same amount and it’s up to each of us to determine how we use it.

What’s most important is that we don’t waste it.

It’s not a renewable resource.

We get four weekends in March.

Make the most of them.
