More This 'n That

I apologize to my readers for being absent, but it can't be helped. I have other things to do and haven't had time to pound out a blog. I've heard people say that Retirement is busier than when you're working and I can vouch for that. This little spurt of not having any free time will go on through January at least.

I've managed to finish O'Shaughnessy's New Deputy again. What happened was the prior proof was almost perfect, but it contained some typos and English errors, maybe a half dozen, and when I corrected them and re-submitted, for some reason the format was all screwed up. I retyped everything and sent it in again and I'm waiting to see the Proof copy and see if it came out all right as the draft document showed. This story has taken almost a year of revising and drafting and trying to meld four or five versions into one. A lengthy process indeed!

My volunteer duties have crowded into my routine leaving very little time for anything, but that should end around the end of January and maybe I can get back to regular blogging.

In the meantime, I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

  1. The writing is the easy part. The "production" process can go on forever. Best of the season to you as well.

    1. The writing was fairly easy and the rest took time. Thanks, Ron.

  2. That volunteering can be a lot of work for us retired guys. If you don't get around to posting again in the next few weeks, Merry Christmas.

    1. Most of the time it isn't too busy, but this winter is just the opposite. Thanks, Neil!

  3. I sure hope retirement isn't busier than before. Now you're scaring me.

    1. It's what you let (or get) yourself into that makes retirement busy. Otherwise it's a piece of cake. I can't just sit around all day with nothing to do. And I'm sure you'll find plenty of ways to pass your time and ENJOY IT.
