Friday – first of nine left

That’s a weird way to look at it, but that’s what came to me for this title. There are nine Fridays left in the year, and this one’s already done for. How did you spend yours? As for me, I worked, read, then I took Mom to her podiatrist. He’s a very nice man, and…

Productive day & A Few Good Men

So my sister, Sandy, tends to adopt things to bring home after vacations. Not a pet or anything like that, but a habit or a new thing to her that she enjoyed from her trip. From Costa Rica, she developed her coffee drinking. And in talking with her about what she might bring back from…

2022 winding down

Today I went back to work after being off for 11 business days. It wasn’t as hectic as I expected, but I think that’s because many of the projects are still assigned to the folks who were covering for me while I was out. I expect it to get a bit busier the next couple…

Yesterday was Ohi Day in Greece, which commemorates the day Greece said ‘no’ (ohi) to Mussolini before WWII. They have a marching military style parade through the town. We had learned…

Greece (Chania, Crete) – day 6 (art, walk to beach)

We slept in today and got moving a little later than usual. We decided not to go on the tour stops today which were to a couple bakeries and a bead shop. Instead we headed to the waterfront for breakfast and had one of the pastries that the area is known for (bougatsa), which was…
