Retirement ??

there is an old adage...that retired folks get "more" busy than - that should be enough to get the idea across.

When I was teaching, I would get certain days off.  You just don't take a vacation from retirement.  Today,  as an example, I was up and out most of the day doing errands - taking stuff to town - getting stuff in town - going by stores -- playing my horn -- and so forth.  You don't want to know all the details.

But  I got home fairly late tonight - dogs hungry - frankly my boy Fritz is beside himself with hunger.   Tomorrow?  not much different.  I have some things I really need to do in town - then, I plan to work in the back yard until dark-thirty.   If all goes well, I will be really tired and want to go to bed early.  If it works out.

Starting Sunday, I am getting to play trumpet for the local little theater (Warehouse Theater) production of King and I.   I have not gotten to do a broadway show in such a long time.   It will be fun, and I am excited.   Rehearsals go for the first part of the week.  Performances happen the last of the week.   If you are looking for me - give it a break. 

My wife and daughter are  in Houston at the Houston Quilt Show.  If you have never seen this quilt show, you are missing an experience.   You can walk around the entire day looking at quilts and not see them all.  They have quilt exhibits - they have stuff for sale that will ruin a whole day - they have classes going on for 5 days.   It is quite the thing.  And cheap to attend.

I decided to stay home and take care of the dogs - practice my horn - and get some biz done.  I'll prolly go next year. 

That's it - just it.   See ya in a week.
