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.
Happy birthday Dave, what a great day for a celebration.ReplyDelete

The covid is terrible. Is there a reason your company says he has a family issue and needs to be off for 2 weeks? Why not just say it's covid? About a month ago, my co worker who is still working, and only one leftin the dept at bloomies and told me that someone had covid at the store. The store had to close till everyone was tested. Turns out 14 people had it. Store closed for 18 days again...since they didn't have enough coverage since the dumb asses laid everyone off. And lord knows if any costumers got it, how would they even trace it??? Just one more reason I'm glad now I'm not out in this daily.
Thanks! I have no idea why they're handling it this way, possibly because we're all supposed to be doing home health checks, which should cut down on the odds of it spreading into the store.Delete
Happy birthday - and you got the best birthday present ever! I'm curious about your colleague that was diagnosed positive though. Surely his colleagues should be told who it is so that they can check if they had contact with him. Our first case at work, after asking his permission, the medical service sent round a document saying "anyone having had with John H, please make yourself known to the medical service immediately".ReplyDelete
Thanks! It was a really great present!!Delete
They talked to the associates who were in contact with him for 15 minutes or more. Flooring is pretty much self-sufficient, so he rarely comes into the department. There are other specialty departments where he did spend a lot of time.
Late to your blog today. Hope you had and are still having a super birthday! Take care.
I thought you knew, every day since November 7 is a day of celebration! Birthday or not!Delete
Happy -belated?- birthday! Yay for cake and ice cream!ReplyDelete
And you did get a great gift: Cheeto will be out.
And that tree looks super pretty.
He will be dragged out screaming and kicking, and many in his party are going to be with him. Remember, they are the party of NO.Delete
