Re: What day is it?

My wife bought me a clock that has the days of the week on it instead of the time.

Re: What day is it?

The thing about working that pissed me off (this is on the odd occasion I had a 'real' job where I had to be doiing it monday-friday) was on the weekends... sometimes I'd wake up on Sunday morning and think 'I gotta go to work tomorrow' and that would wreck my whole Sunday.

Time is a crazy thing!

Now I wake up at 6am no matter what. When I worked and the alarm went off at 7am I would hate it. Drag myself outta bed cursing and grumpy till lunch time.

One of the great things I enjoy about my life now is the non reliance on a time structured life.

I guess some folks whose whole career is/was 9-5, 8-6 M-F or whatever, after 30 years, 40 years of it, the relaxation of being independent of time must be good... maybe also challenging.

I'm just dipping into celestial navigatioon and haven't studied it seriously yet, so don't beat me up too bad on this. Although I can take it if you do.

Just keep a bookmark in the almanac. Actually we used to cut a corner of the page off every day.

Re: What day is it?

If dogs could talk and you asked one what time it is he would joyfully reply IT'S NOW! IT'S NOW! IT'S NOW!

For me, it's about 3 days before I get to close the door on this piece of **** auto shop for the last time and go finish my boat. Well, get it seaworthy anyway, not finished.

Re: What day is it?

We are still at Yorkeys knob waiting for our Cait and visa's for indonesia.

Nothing else to do but wait for "sundowners" 3pm.
Well it must be 3pm somewhere in the world by now.
Sometimes we even cheat and start earlier.
