Goodby Again

I know, I barely got home. Now we're leaving again, this time south to see my grandson sing the lead in his HS play, and then we're off to the Oregon Coast with my daughters and several grandchildren.

It's so great to be retired. Someone asked me if I had any regrets. My answer: Zeeeee-ro!!!

With the economy on the skids, my old state agency (which administers Unemployment Insurance) has been calling back every former employee they could find. I ran into one of my old managers and asked her why she hadn't called me to come back to work.

"If I called you", she said, "what would have been your answer?"

"I would have said 'fuck you'."

"That's why I didn't call you."
