And now, Friday


It wasn’t the meeting from hell, but it was in the neighborhood.

I had to drive to cHARLOTtsville yesterday. Always difficult for a Hokie.

So, while it wasn’t the worst meeting I’d been to, when I got home and got the quarterly statement from my retirement system, I did me some math.

Not yet, but soon.

True, my “full retirement age” is a bit further out, and I might just stick it out.

But when I hit that magical age of Medicare eligibility, I’ll be looking at those maths again.

The maths will all work out. True Publishers Clearinghouse or Powerball could make them work out a lot faster.

I thought I had some more things to say, but I think I’ll hold off for now.

I’m back at the amusement park this weekend, and that’s a good thing. I had to step away during Last Summer’s Great Unpleasantness (TM).

It feels right to be back.

Have a good weekend.
