I was asked by a friend to come and backfill him, watch his house and watch his dog while he went to school in Maryland. I agreed to come, but I had no real interest in coming to Montgomery again. I keep coming back here, and while I do love many of my friends in the area, I have no love for the area, itself, nor would greatly expand my repertoire by working there again.
But I got to hang out with good friends, got lots of work done, helped a unit through an inspection, produced several issues of the unit magazine, built some tools available for other units, and drank chocolate coffee.
I attended a friend’s birthday party in Birmingham last week and ended up giving economics lessons to everyone. I was afraid I might be talking to much, but even when people were coming in and everybody got up to greet them, they’d stop and tell me to continue! People are really hungry to learn about economics. We don’t teach economics in schools! Not really. We teach kids how to log check ledgers — something no one really does anymore! Sheesh!
Anyway, fun was had by me.
I’m glad to be moving on to see new friends in Virginia and then back to Atlantica!! (Yes, Atlantica. Know it. ‘member it. LOVE it.)
I don’t really have anything else to mutter on about tonight. Plus I’m going to Buffalo Wild Wings with friends to om some nom. It’s okay to be jealous. Go ahead. Start rueing!
