How's It Goin'?


Hello, everyone. How are you? That's nice. Me? Oh, fine. Still battling Class A Influenza, thanks for asking. Taxes are due in a few days. Lots of birthday parties going on in town without me. Haven't been out for a couple of weeks. The baseball season is underway and my team, the newly improved Seattle Mariners, has dropped six in a row.

I read in the paper that pot-bellied people are wide-open for dementia.

Oh, look, The Sun Valley Company has announced the creation of a slapstick-comedy musical revue called "The Wah-Hoo(p) Revue" to be performed in the summer. Why didn't I think of that?

In world and national news, I ... never mind.

How about those...? Nah. Did you hear about...? Neither did I. On the bright side, I ... scratch that. Having a nice time? Grab a line. I see that another bank is going up downtown in the old Louie's Parking Lot. That's nice. Bankville is a good image. YouTube is featuring "beat-downs" by violent teen-age girls. How odd. Everyone's mad about China hosting the Olympics with their violent stand against Tibet, and we're still in Iraq helping out. Go eternal flame. The Idaho Statesman has been nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for reporting on Larry Craig's wide stance on (t)issues. What a world.

Retirement is really overrated. The pressure is still on you to make your bills and the game of "juggling" to be able to come up with the money each month continues. Not much different from the rat race where an agreement was reached months ago---they don't want to offer and I don't want to join.

What? I'm fine! What are you tallkin' about? Sun Valley in the Springtime? What could be better? Thousands of tourists will soon be here. There are a few concerns, however. For instance, will there be enough banks? Will there be time for all the meetings? Can we all possibly keep busy for every waking moment? Inquiring minds would like to know.

So, I think I'll just walk around a lot this summer and take in the beauty of the area, juggle my funds, meet some nice folks and refuse to embark on any new projects or attractive paths of promise.

Always a pleasure. Nice talking to you.
