It was a gentle day…well not entirely…I did do my state and federal tax returns today…I have no idea why I left them to the last minute so to speak…I knew I had money coming back…last year I filed at the last possible time because I knew I owed…this year…no guess…but I regress…it was a gentle day…I actually got a paid holiday off…in the 34+ years I have worked for the same employer I have worked on every paid holiday at least once except Christmas day…and almost every year we have had Good Friday for a holiday I’ve worked it…this was a first…I actually got the day off…no pages…no despite phone calls…no we need to have this truck loaded today…an absolute miracle…

A beautiful early spring day…beside the taxes I did a few errands…and basically chilled…I need 3 days without stress bad…and I’ve gotten 1 in a row…

I opened the window in my bedroom/computer room…and my two indoor cats have been taking turns on the sill…I think they probably enjoy the warm breezes more then I

Today was …well a very typical work day…I must admit a sense of frustration with a couple of things that went down…a typical lack of communication and lack of understanding in what my department’s job entails but that’s normal…I expect it so…on the whole a normal day

Made a pizza for supper and watched the top chef marathon on bravo…as well as the latest flick that tries to depict the legend of Arthur, King of the Britons…as with all of the many attempts it falls short…but it does set the tale in a more historical time frame then most…maybe a tad early but at least not in the age of steel armored knights…and the lass that plays Guinevere what a babe, and the movie depicts her as a warrior …as it should…okay so I’m a dirty old man we’ve had this conversation before live with it…

Today was a difficult physical day…had to spend way too much time at the warehouse and way too much time on the forklift…to those who have never run one of those short wheel based, 4 ton vehicles with a one ton load, and no shocks, no springs and absolutely stiff suspension over an uneven floor at 58 years old has no idea of the pounding the body takes driving one…plus the absolute concentration it takes or you mess something up big time…back and knees are killing me tonight…plus the damage that pounding the concrete floors of a factory for the last 35+ years have taken it’s toll, my feet are killing me tonight…dang

Cat Aggie is on my lap purring her little heart out, but for a 20 pound house cat I doubt little is the proper term, of all the cats that I have shared my home with she is the one who just sits there, enjoys the quality time and allows me to do my keyboard thing…

Worship team practice was cancelled tonight…and on one hand I was glad…really not in the mood physically or emotionally to go out tonight…but on the other hand was greatly disappointed…I love to sing…I love the peeps and I missed practice last week because of the problem with the car…I had called looking for a ride but the church secretary had forgotten about it until practice had started…nuts…

But a gentle night…

Nite all

Work went pretty good today…dock repair that’s been ongoing at the warehouse seems to be almost all done so things can return to normal…realized I am lacking a crucial piece of information to file my taxes…but should have that in the next couple of days…found out today while in theory we have a holiday Friday (Good Friday)…there is a possibility I may have to work at less part of the day…not a big deal…with a few recent set backs I could use the extra cash…a gentle night…

Night all

Today has been a strange day, the things I intended to do were undone and things I had no intention of doing…were…a bizarre and strange day…’nough said
