At Mid-Week

On this day in 1607, the Virginia Company made landfall at Cape Henry, Virginia.

It’s mid-week and I continue to juggle multiple projects. I’ve given you the list.

What I haven’t told you is that, in the next five weeks, I have five, count ‘em five, board meetings at my day job.

‘Tis the season.

It’s all good. It’s what we do.

I’m not sure if I should tell you that, in addition to my retirement countdown, I have a side column of “number

of board meetings left.”

But I should take my own advice and live in the moment. So I shall leave in each of those board meetings…one painful minute at a time.

Sorry, did I type that out loud?

I cannot let the day pass by without recognizing that the first born has a birthday today. I tell of his arrival here: An Interruption.

He is now older than I was when he was born. Seems like I’ve been talking about age a lot this week.

Much has transpired since that day when I was planning a small visit for 150 state legislators to meet with the President. I told the receptionist I’d have to call my wife back.

“Fletch, you’d better take this call.”

The rest, as they say, is history.

Very, very, expensive history.

Happy Birthday, son. May all your dreams come true.

Including the one where you buy your parents a beach house.
