Sunday. My long, long weekend begins. Today is also my birthday. That means cake and ice cream this afternoon. The dogs and I will take a walk this morning. They love their walks.
Oh, and in case you didn't notice, I got a very nice birthday present yesterday. I was cutting roller shades for a customer when my watched buzzed with a headline. Glancing at it, I saw that Joe Biden had won the presidency. Of course, since I had six more rollers shades to cut, I couldn't go dancing down the aisles. I had to maintain normal chitchat with the customer, so it wasn't until I was walking back to the flooring desk that I realized there was a tiny tear hanging from the corner of my eye. I always knew he was going to win, still the truth didn't sink in until I began to see the celebrations springing up all across the country. After all those days of counting ballots, the great state of Pennsylvania put Joe over the top. A funny thing about those 5 days in which ballots were being counted: the state board of elections wanted to begin counting mail in ballots a week early since they knew there were going to be close to 2 million, however, the Republican legislature in the state said "no," that's why it took so long. Perhaps in their dirty, little hearts they realized the truth.
And while the joy is overflowing, keep in mind, there are still 73 days in which the Idiot Jerk and his party of toadies can wreck havoc, and you can bet his crumby soul he's going to do his damndest... before he heads to Russia.
And on a more somber vote, a letter was posted by our timeclock informing us that one of our associates has Covid. I suspect it is my Supervisor since he is still on the schedule, yet hasn't shown up for 3 days. I was told he has a family issue and needs to be off for 2 weeks. Lucky for me he spent very little time in my department. Unlucky for the appliance specialists because he spent most of his work hours with them.
The leaves on my gingko tree are turning yellow. I took a picture. In a day or two they will all fall off at once... and then I turn them into mulch.
