I'm happy because I just found out from the school where I teach that I'm not required for Monday (the teacher whom I was filling in for feels much better, apparently) - hooray for surprise long weekends!
...because my wife and I get to take off tomorrow for a 4-day vacation. We're lighting out for the Territory. NO-FO. The sunny southwest. Watch us come home to two feet of snow in the drive and a five foot bank at the curb. She says she wants to live out there...winters...when we retire. When she retires...I doubt I'll retire. There's this old buck, 84-year-old, still changing links in the cable to lift the porch off the trailer...nothing ventured! nothing gained! he says. Heh! I can't imagine being that limber at 84.
