Sorry, I have been preoccupied

Sorry about the lack of new posts to my two dozen loyal readers, but I have been busy.

First I attended my H.S. 30 year reunion last weekend. I had to drive a round trip of over 1000 miles to see some old friends, but it was interesting.

Second I am working on a second book, while editing the first.

Throw in that I am still working full time Monday thru Friday, and you get my drift.

Election season is coming, but I hope to have my novel ready and all edits finished by October first. I love writing about politics, and the Pennsylvania state budget fiasco is a big honking target, but I just don't have as much time to opinionate as I would like.

Eventually I will get back to blogging regularly, but right now I am having too much fun elsewhere. Sorry!

Saturday, in the park, I think it was the not the 4th of July

Saturday started out like it was not going to go so well. Mrs C and I headed to lunch at the Texas Roadhouse. We were in the mood for steak. We were seated. And for 15 minutes, while people were seated and served all around us, we were ignored.

So we left.

We went elsewhere for lunch.

That happens sometimes. We went to a local family owned Italian place, and had a great meal. Sometimes things work out for the best.

Last night we went to the baseball game at Coca-Cola park. Home team won, and Mrs C's favorite player, the one she claims has a cute tooshie (DH Mike Cervenak) , hit a home run. That was enough fireworks for us, we left as the game ended, and the rain started. good Timing!

Now what has been on my mind? see the next post Monday. I have put together a musical movie quiz in honor of the king of the Brat pack movies, John Hughes. He died last week, and I have compiled lyrics from the great soundtracks from his many movies.

As I was going through them I was amazed at how much great eighties music there was in his films. So check it out Monday night. I want to make sure they are all correct.

Tell me why i don't Like Mondays, I want to Shoot the Whole Day Down!




Is there any other day of the week that we all want to avoid any more than Monday?

I think it would really help the economy if we went to a three day work week. Everybody should get a four day weekend! Can you imagine if you could pick your days off like that?

I would immediately choose a Tuesday through Thursday work week, with Friday through Monday off!

I am even willing to compromise, How about this?

What if Ages 16 to 35 have to work 5 days a week, 35 to 49 four days a week, and 50 + only three?

I am a frickin genius! I should be in government!
