Fresh haircuts care of my skilled and wonderful wife.

Again, sorry for the late post. Typically, I want to have these up on Saturday; but life happens and the post didn’t. As I said earlier this year, the the best laid plans of mice and men are laid to waste, and that includes mine.

Last week, I turned 38 years old. My wife took it upon herself to ensure I had a wonderful day, and she succeeded. I felt very loved and very valued. This of course came on the heels of my prior week update wherein I expressed negative feelings about my upcoming day, and my venting them was so negative that I did not post them at all.

06/01/2020 Trying to be lighter.

Posted by on Jun 1, 2020 in Weekly Updates 2020

The hair may never get this long again.

I know this is late.

I drafted a post on Saturday, but it was a little too raw, even for me. I just felt that the things that I put into the mix were better suited for an in-person discussion where tone could be clearly conveyed.

05/23/2020 Goals, Ideas, and Failed Execution

Posted by on May 23, 2020 in Uncategorized

More meat on this face than year opening…

Full disclosure. I am not posting this while feeling the best about myself, and while I’m going to be a bit rough, I am not looking for pity, sympathy, or compliments. I’m just riffing on how I feel.

I don’t know even know where to start. I’m making some progress in my office, and I intend to post about it this week.

Of course, I had two other post intended to do last week, and I had something happen today I also intended to post.

So we’ll see what happens…

Displays May 2020

What happened to the shelves?

So, this is not a display. Unless you want to consider it modern art. But you shouldn’t, And that’s the point. This is a mess.

My office is a mess, and I cannot taking time to display my stuff until I get the store’s stuff in order.

05/16/2020 Reflections Halfway Through May

Posted by on May 16, 2020 in Uncategorized

Surrounded by Inventory…and tired.

We are half-way through May, and the restrictions surrounding COVID-19 continue. Measured openings and limited allowances expand week-over-week; but life is not what it was once 10 weeks ago, and it will not be for some time, if ever. The sad thing is that for all the technological advancement and “disseminated knowledge” of the last few months, the cost and toll have gone far beyond the sick and the dead. The collateral damage of economic shutdown and mandated isolation is not small. People are suffering in all manner of ways well outside a virus.

Spring shall pass under the shadow of fear; here’s to a better summer.

05/11/2020 And The Covid Crisis Continues

Posted by on May 11, 2020 in Uncategorized

Longing for some semblance of the old normal.

My apologies that these are not being posted at the close of each week as I had hoped.

Most weeks I’m sprinting just to stay afloat on eBay and my full-time responsibilities at the new gig. If I’m not grinding for a dime, I try to give my attention to Landon and Jamie, hoping to maintain enough fuel in the tank to give them some level of quality time. As far as carving out minutes for other pursuits, getting to the blog falls off the radar most Saturdays.

But my intent was to post twice weekly, and I am trying to be at least in the ballpark.
