My stint is down to 19 work days. I shall be back at my desk January 2. The service has made some interesting changes while I was away. I visited my desk for a few moments yesterday. I am not pleased that I am doing the worst job for eight weeks instead of the traditional four, but many have opted to retire leaving us short. If I must serve time I prefer to serve as Cool Hand Luke.
In my rush to close the office two of my favorite CDs got misplaced. However, I located another copy of It Came from the Beach. The music at the new spot is vile and worthy of a bad trip to a medical office.
I will be taking Thursday off. Hopefully, I will finish Captain Caution and then do the last Kenneth Roberts book Boon Island. Then it will be onto historical fiction set in Poland.
