Vacation: Day One

I hadn't really planned on taking a vacation this year. I get buggy when I have too much time on my hands. But it seems I picked an opportune time to be absent from the Hive. Things were getting messy and stupid down there and my sense of humor was beginning to wear a little thin.

Today would have been my friday but I took it off to watch my daughter graduate from high school. That was the crowning achievement to date in my life. If I die tomorrow I'll go happy knowing that she got that far, at least.

When she first came into our lives five years ago she was scant inches away from flunking out of school and spending the rest of her teen years in juvenile hall. And today she graduated high school with not one but two scholarships for college. Says she wants to be a radiologist.

That could come in real handy. I tend to break alot of bones. Not always mine, but that does happen, too.

So for a day when I haven't really done a single blessed thing, I have a real sense of accomplishment. It's Miller time!!!

And if it does occur that I happen to actually do anything productive or even slightly interesting during the next nine days, I'll be sure to keep you informed.

Be careful in there.


  1. Be glad you weren't there tonight. It wasn't pretty. We all made it home though.

  2. My wife is an x ray tech and she has mad skills. She makes a lot more than I do and I'm in the Teamsters. Its a good field to be in.

    Enjoy your time off, its too valuable not to.

  3. Congrats to the daughter, she's a cool kid.
