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

And so, 2016 begins

And, of course, I was fast asleep when that magic hour struck.  For those who don't know, I work in retail management which means, except for Thanksgiving and Christmas I don't get holidays, though I do have off today for the first time in years.  I had asked my brother if he and one of his sons could move some furniture out of our Mom's house and he said, "it's going to be tough, it's the holiday weekend."  So, I explained to him for the umpteenth time that I do not get holiday weekends.  While he, and just about everybody he knows, gets a 3 day weekend, I'm back at work tomorrow, oh, and I worked New Years Eve, which is why there's nothing really special about today for me.
While most people will kick back, maybe watch the Rose Parade, eat a New Years Dinner and watch football (something I never do), I've got a list of chores that need to be taken care of.  Like go to the supermarket, the dogs need food.  And stop by my Mom's house and pack up 5 boxes of dishes for Community Aid, and, of course, visit Mom.  I did spend some time talking to friends on the phone this AM, wishing them a Happy New Year.  I'm getting together with my friend Betsy, who lives down in York, on the 16th to see Star Wars (second time for me).
And then later this evening I will plop myself down and play some Fallout 4, which takes place 200 years after the 2077 nuclear war which devastated the planet.  This episode of the Fallout series takes place in and around Boston.

I've just managed to reach the safe haven of Diamond City, a town of survivors which has grown up inside Fenway Park.

Anyway, that's what I'm planning on doing this evening.  Tomorrow it's back to work bright and early.  We have some corporate people coming to town next week to walk the store so everything has got to be super duper neat and clean.  I am not excited.
