Big smiles, Spawzer. I'll be at the Getaway and now know to get in touch with Rita and Bill. Don't know what they may have in mind, but could definitely get into going out into the bay in a kayak, if that is appropriate.

Keep us posted when the numbers come in from your latest bloodwork, Darlin' 'Spaw.

VT, may you have moments of joy and contentment, and days that you can hold onto to get you through days that don't seem worth holding onto.

Essentially the same thing, Pete, with somewhat less pressure, more service and significantly less management responsibilities, and able to work 40-50 hours instead of 50-65 hours per week - at a substantial cut in pay. But I only made the decent wage for a few years and had not got used to it, and in my field and at my age, I am very fortunate to have secured another job. I know a lot of folks in my sector who are out of work. Somehow, over the past several years I have managed to keep landing on my feet - this job does not necessarily qualify as "sticking the landing," but I definitely need to work for a pay check for at least another 4 years. After that, I can bring enough in from my private practice to adequately subsidize retirement income for as long as the brain cells function well enough.   I have much for which to be thankful. Lots of folks in my field are out of work and unable to find work.

All this is minor stuff compared the life-endangering issues folks deal with here.

Somebody lead us in a chanty now, to get these sails up to take advantage of a fair wind.
