Day Five of the Staycation

It's my last vacation day... On the plus side, I don't actually have to return to work until Tuesday. Since the 4th is on Monday. This is why we plan our week of vacation prior to a three day weekend. Sadly, I had to check out of the hotel this morning. It sure was nice … Continue reading Day Five of the Staycation


Day Four of the Staycation

Went to see Elvis today. It was all right... Not sure it's anything to write home about. Tom Hanks was good as the Colonel. Austin Butler was outstanding as Elvis. Overall, I just thought the movie was too long. And it felt long. I don't mind long movies if they don't feel long, you know? … Continue reading Day Four of the Staycation

Day One of the Staycation

I'm off work this week. If I were the kind of person who had an emotional range, there's a good chance I'd smile at that thought. Might even cheer a little. As you can probably tell from the title of this post, I'm not going anywhere for the vacation. Just staying in my little home … Continue reading Day One of the Staycation

Question of the Week #304

Would you rather vacation somewhere new with a friend who knew the ins and outs of the place or with one who, like you, was seeing it for the first time? I'm not sure that it would matter to me. I mean, if this is a friend I'm willing to go on vacation with, then … Continue reading Question of the Week #304

I Need Suggestions…

As a sort of birthday present to myself and, also, as a means of avoiding a severe anxiety attack from chronic overworking myself, I'm planning a vacation. Now, it's not happening yet. Not until, probably, the first week of April. I am really open to suggestions on this. Where do you think I should go? I'm … Continue reading I Need Suggestions…

Question of the Week #139

Would you rather spend a month on vacation with your parents or put in overtime at your current job for four weeks without extra compensation? I'm not sure how to answer this question. I mean, I love my job. So if I were asked to do extra work out of the kindness of my heart, … Continue reading Question of the Week #139

That Week I Spent a Day in Roanoke

It's not often that I feel nostalgic about the city in which I grew up. But I recently spent a week there, and as I drove around town, the nostalgia was so thick I thought I'd have to brush it away from my face. Yeah, I live in Blacksburg and I recently vacationed in a … Continue reading That Week I Spent a Day in Roanoke

Question of the Week #113

If you could take a one-month trip anywhere in the world and money were not a consideration, where would you go and what would you do? Australia. Even though I am of the firm belief that just about every living creature on that continent has been bred to destroy humanity, I've always been fascinated by … Continue reading Question of the Week #113
