There will be beers hanging from every tree and a steak on every plate.
Hallo, Lane + Y'all!The days are getting longer; hooray!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!If the flight is on schedule, I should be arriving SEA-TAC around noon on 6 Jan. I'll then take Sound Transit's new "train" to the forbidden building and then the 7 to Prentice St.; so, if you hear someone arriving @ Redwing in the afternoon of 6 Jan., it's not a burglar or a racoon, but(Tschüß,)Anonomann
Thanks a peck for for the PalmerSolstice celebration. I don't knowwhere the hell the sun went, butthe days are getting longer Iheard a meadowlark warble.I loved your posting prior to this one.I re-posted it over on FFTR, and it has the dubious honorof being the last posting for 2009on that sterling site.Texas was cold, although one dayit wasn't. 10 of us stayed at mymother-in-laws home, and privacywas a thing of the past. My grandsonsscreamed, pitched fits, opening theirpresents (no adults got any--actuallythat is not true, one of my son-in-lawsbrought me a MUFON ball cap froma Colorado convention he went to.The day after Christmas Melva brokeher left foot while holding two year oldAustin up to the kitchen sink to washhis sticky fingers. This complicated ourcommute home, as one might suspect.Melva is handling it fine, better than Iam. The grandsons crawled all over herbanging into her injured foot every tenminutes. My mole surgery came backwith clean labs, so that is a blessingof sorts. Melva also had a similar surgerythe day before mine, and her labs cameback good as well. Cancer will have tofind some other dominion, some otherdomicile for the time being.I had 180 emails to delete after 8 days.Heading off to our annual friend'sNew Year's Party in a bit; cards, fellowship, BS, and party favors,to stand at midnight and watch boththe ball fall, and the Space Needleshoot its top off; although it might bepretty overcast and crappy. In a blink I will be back in harness,and endeavoring to find stuff in myoffice after other have filled in for mefor two weeks; if I have an office left.Boss told me that my schedule willbe altered severely as I begin the sixmonth countdown to retirement.

Gosh, kinda figured that therewould be a post done over theweekend. But hey, dat's cool.Monday, Monday, the first oneof the New Year; raining liketen sombitches, and warm, verywarm, like 42 out here. HereI am at the office, and thingsdid not get too messed up inmy absence. I was filled withdread trying to figure outhow to get back to work,wondering what surprises awaitme. But somehow, like a goodsled dog, like a stalwartfire horse, put me in harness,and after a few moments offuss, and move back into thetraces like I never left.Scary really to be such awell trained wage slave.Melva is doing well withher broken foot; a lot betterthan I would for sure. Sheis returning to work todayas well. Anonomann is coming!Anonomann is coming! And thereis joy at Redwing Manor.What's shaking with theold Savant?Glenn
