Almost There....

Well, this is it: My last evening as an employed person. As of 5:30p tomorrow, I'll be officially jobless. All my benefits end Saturday at midnight. And since the SC upheld the healthcare mandate along with the rest of the provisions, I guess I'll be required to buy medical insurance from the giant insurance racketeers at some point. Swell.  Not really sure where that $$ is going to come from, but at the moment I have other things to worry about!

Anyhoo.....It's almost Friday. Hot enough for ya? Hope it's cooled down in your area, wherever you happen to be!

Have you noticed that none of the talking heads and meteorologists on teevee will even mention that these weather extremes are due to accelerated warming? Guess they're too terrified to piss off the anti-science wingnut crowd. Or maybe it's due to marching orders from the top of corpo-world. Whatever their reasoning, it seems as ridiculous as trying ignore an elephant in the room.

Our climate is MESSED UP. And this is just the beginning. Ten years from now, we'll probably be looking back on this past decade's weather extremes as the "good old days"!

It doesn't end with a bang or a whimper,
it'll end on a bed or in a corner or on the street with an insatiable, ravenous growling in an empty stomach.

So I guess you're official within the "homestretch", so to speak. In an hour you're officially among the unemployed, probably from a status of "under-employed", and joining the ranks of boomers who have been let go too young to retire and too "mature" to start anew.

God's speed to ya', my beautiful friend! May your life find bountiful and happier days on the near horizon, and the sun always be in your face and the wind at your back. Bless you...

(The "sun in your face" isn't such a good metaphor today, though, is it?)
