It has been a sort of a hectic week.
People worry about retirement and how they will fill in all that spare time. The cliché of course is that people should take up golf or bowls or bridge or some such shit like that. Take it from me.. you won't have any time for any of that.
First of all there was a touch of flu or a cold or something that wouldn't go away and it left me somewhat mentally muggy. The whiskey didn't help.
Then I had to go out for the annual haircut. It's my little concession to the civilised world, as villagers were complaining that I was scaring visitors away. So I usually have a little cut and blow job around this time of year.
Then there was the saga of my armchair. That is back and is more comfy than ever but my arse is still sore from that abomination of a temporary chair. I still can't sit down for very long.
The biggest time killer though was a little job I am doing for the community. And no – it's not scrubbing off graffiti by order of the courts – it's a little job I volunteered to do and it is taking far longer and is far more time consuming than I had anticipated. I'm not complaining and in fact am rather enjoying it, but is taking up most of my time these days.
So all in all, I have had little time for this site. Even worse, while I managed to make time for the occasional little brain-fart, I sorely neglected some of the comments. Sorry about that.
Actually I just noticed that yesterday the site had the fewest visitors in a very long time – since the beginning of August in fact.
So I suppose it's just as well I didn't waste my time by writing anything if there was no one there to read it?
