Elephants stomp and ants tremble or so it seems. The courier biz is going through some changes and clients are lost and gained. My employer is losing some routes including the bulk of mine. I'm offered other routes but don't like them. Hence, I'm taking a self imposed furlough. 

Financially I'm fine other than facing some large dental bills. Then again, I'm kind of liking the Kentucky meth head look.

This weekend I worked because they didn't have anyone. Flu has hit the company hard. Sort of riding for the brand. The route involves driving to Estes Park, home of badly driven Subarus and SUVs, plus Boulder and Denver. Not something I enjoy.

  "Give me room, lots of room and starry skies above...."

One thing I've learned in life is this. The only constant is change.

So we'll see how this plays out.

Good luck with the change in work. It will give you more time to get into trouble.

Trouble finds me. Just today this Boulderite was trying to comment on my driving. "Hey, I'm talking to you".

My reply? "I'm ignoring you. Or, I can throat punch you. Your choice".

Would have made a good YouTube video. Two fat old farts jawing in a parking lot. Alas, he decided to decamp.

Aside from getting into trouble, perhaps an extended time off will rejuvenate your batteries.

Need to de-clutter. Filled two sacks of cloths I no long wear to take to ARC. May say to hell with it and go visit the kids in S.C.

Sorry to hear that, and you're right, the ONLY constant is change... sigh

Lemons-lemonade. Road trip to S. Carolina to spend Easter with youngest son and his family.

Employer wants me to work this Saturday and is bumping my pay a $1 per hour. Given the personnel turnover, won't be long before something I like opens up. My former employer is an option.

Oh man. Sorry to hear this. I wish I could have met you in Estes Park. The rest of those stops blow.

If I want a route to Estes I can have it. With US 34 still washed out, not interested.
