My Friday has arrived!
Yesterday work was tedious. I spent most of the day at the Flooring desk fixing and correcting problems. Issues do crop up from time to time, sometimes they're the result of an error on our part, other times it's a problem of the customer's creation... meaning, no matter what the facts prove, we're responsible for the mistake. This is one of the many reasons, I do not doubt, retail employees are leaving their jobs in record numbers. We deal with a lot of people who do nothing but fluff themselves up with self-entitlement. This is why I'll be singing a special song once September arrives.
I'm harvesting peaches tomorrow! Lots of peaches!
Yesterday, Carl Nassib, a resident of West Chester, PA, and the first active player of the NFL came out as gay! I was going to send him a note on Instagram telling him to expect his free toaster oven, but decided not ruin Bob's surprise.
Finally, according to the CDC, thanks to the new variants, we should see a spike in Covid infections this fall.
Of course, the vast majority of those getting infected are going to be the unvaccinated; evangelical Christians, social conservatives, Qanon heretics, and the anti-vaxxers, or, if you feel the need to just lump them into one category, Republicans. This will happen because so many of them are in denial, thanks to the failed president they worship. Truthfully, most of us who have been vaccinated, or are in the process of getting vaccinated don't really care. The common attitude I find towards these fools is 'more power to them.' Which is a quiet way of singing hallelujah.
So are you plannng to retire in September? Good for you if so!ReplyDelete
At least a partial retirement.Delete
Natural selection. The variants will prove that natural selection is a thing.ReplyDelete
And I read about Carl. Very brave. Kudos to him.
I went to the Big Orange Store over the weekend. I wanted a bird house. About 45% of the people wore masks. I was surprised.
I think I've said that already regarding the survival of the fittest.Delete
I read about Nassib yesterday, too, and was really pleased that an active player has come out. All it takes is one ...ReplyDelete
You did send him the toaster oven, didn't you?Delete
I saw the news about Nassib yesterday, too, and immediately thought "he'll be getting a toaster oven from Bob!" Hahaha!!ReplyDelete
Your peaches look fantastic. I just bought a bagful of sweet peaches from the farmer's market yesterday. They smell heavenly and I'm sure they're going to taste great, too.
I couldn't care less what happens to the folks choosing not to get vaccinated. Let them take themselves on out--they won't be missed.
I don't care about the losers either. I'm pretty sure a peach cobbler's going to be in the oven some time during the next 2 days.Delete
Dave, you are so fortunate to have fruit trees. Good luck with the harvest. I hope some cobblers are in your future.ReplyDelete
Yes, I'm lucky to have a bumper crop.Delete
Mother Nature is releasing these variants...to try and thin the herd even further. I got her back....ReplyDelete
I think we all got her back.Delete
