I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

Saturday, May 4, 2024


 Well, I hope everybody's planning on having a busy Saturday.  This is the weekend some of you work for, though the weather here in Central PA may not be specifically what you want.  The skies are overcast.  The temps are down.  We'll be lucky if we hit 60 (F) today.

Since the weather is not conducive to home improvement shopping, foot traffic at the store will probably be down.  Not that it bothers me.  For the first time in ages, I was given a Saturday off, one that I didn't request.  One that no doubt jabs at a fellow associate in the Flooring and Decor department, since he always requests weekends off.  He's one of those who came to retail without understanding that Saturday and Sunday are the days we have the highest sales.  He came from a job where he had weekends off, and even though he's been an associate for over 5 years, still complains.  When I was in HR, I always told people, if you don't like your job then get another.  He will not do that, too much effort.

Yesterday was I got a lot done, and yet I didn't.  The weed wacking I wanted to do on Thursday was done yesterday, though I wanted to get in a dumbbell workout, and didn't.  For some odd reason, all I wanted to do was nap.  This past week was the 2nd in which I worked on Wednesday and Thursday afternoon, so maybe it was the total hours that made me so drowsy.

I did go out into the drizzle and snap the first roses of the season.

And, of course, yesterday there was one of those heart stopping moments during Trump's election interference trial that usually only happens in movies:  Hope Hicks broke down in tears.  A Trump loyalist, she broke with him after January 6.  Hope is helping the prosecution and lot of little tidbits came out, like the fact that Trump lied to her, saying that Michael Cohen has paid Stormy the money out of his own pocket.  According to Hope, Cohen didn't do anything  on his own without broadcasting it to every one he saw in hopes of getting a compliment.  For him to do so and not brag, and not expect others to generously praise him, would have been so out of character, she knew Trump had to be lying.

Can Hope be trusted?  Geez.  It seems as though everyone in Trump's inner circle lied constantly.


  1. I am apt to trust Hicks, but the fact she cried because she was testifying against Hair Furor annoys me.

    1. Everyone though she cried because she felt sorry for him, could be she cried because she realized how much she'd been lied to.

  2. I pretty much always got weekends off, but to be honest, I always got more work (office work, of course) done when I went in on Saturdays or Sundays - and then had the joy of having time off during the week!

    1. I always get more done during the week, especially if I need to go out since most people are working.
