hello again

...now blogging from home base.
I think perhaps I may blog a series on "temptations of the newly retired" -- starting with the temptation to surge back onto the scene of former glory (or of the crime, depending on one's POV), and slap into righteousness all the folks who are taking action at this point to put to rights ... various trivia.
And I am hearing about it, in my little inbox, yes I am.
It isn't the S4B crowd, it's when the intelligent and kind are overcome by "teh dumb" in their dealings with each other, that one is tempted to rise up and blaspheme.
Or just play another round of Bejeweled Blitz.
Which is its own kind of blasphemy.

blogging later about the leave-taking, which was a good, good day.

S4B = Stuffing For Brains

Love it!

There is an old army tradition that a departing Commanding Officer does not show his or her face in the regiment for at least one year after leaving.

It's very good for the unit and for the old CO.

Congratulations on finishing that particular race!

Didn't know whether to laugh or cry at this post. Looking forward to hearing about the leave taking, however.
