So I left work at 5:30 this evening instead of the normal 7-8 o'clock. It's been a somewhat frazzling day but the issues eventually worked out in a reasonable way. So now I'm sitting on a picnic table on the edge of the Kankakee River watching the little fish chase the bugs on the water. And watching the freight trains whistle by on the trestle to my east. Nice. :-)

I flew to Alabama earlier this week to stay with my mom. We decided to drive to Savannah for the weekend. Amazingly its been in the low seventies here all day with a breeze. Sitting on the Ogeechee right now watching the sun go down. Saw a couple alligators a bit of go. A pretty good day.

I had a couple of jobs where I either did 4 10-11 hour days, or started at 6am and finished, hopefully at 2pm. What with a stint or two of 5-12 afternoon shifts I managed through most of my career to get a stint of daylight time to myself other than weekends.

A picture of the place since I'm back at my computer.

I really lean toward lichen-ness. Unfortunately, the job won't allow for that.
