I have about two weeks of vacation to use up by the end of the year. I took Wednesday and Thursday off, mainly to get in some end of year and insurance benefits in. A visit to Doctor Shane Solberg on Sunset resulted in a set of TRI-focal glasses but no important changes in the interior of the eyes over the last year, or so. A visit to Doctor Barsamian, down the road on Sunset, also seems to have resulted in a no news is good news check-up. My Dad had false teeth many years before my present age so I guess fluoride and flossing do work.
The latest leaf pick up was made Tuesday in my area. Some people seem to think that the city workers have time to handle big branches piled on top of the leaves. They don't! I'd say the pick up and the road cleaning the next day went pretty well all considered.
So I got a little accomplished. Items not completed were a winter going over of my car. Perhaps I haven't been fair to them, but the new Subaru dealer that bought the franchise from Don Jacobs just doesn't feel comfortable to me, even though I've bought two new cars from other locations under the same ownership. I drive marketing people crazy.
There are some parts for the snowblower that should be replaced. I recently took it apart to see their condition and decided that it can make it another season if I don't get around to it. Famous last words?
Politically, not much to shine sun on that dreariness. I have a friend who is related to a famous General most everyone would recognize. While the General has faded away, my friend has connections with other retired military higher-ups who keep their pulse on the news behind the news. What they dig up sickens me. It doesn't get reported or is under-reported, though it is out there if only people would take the time to search it out. I have a cousin of the opposite political leanings who calls it conspiracy stuff. I call it networking and following the money.
The times are dreary indeed. We sure could use the Son.
