The Picnic 2022

 Taking a break from the packing and moving action, I attended my former organization's annual picnic yesterday. The picnic has always been a great place to catch up with the retired crowd, of which I am now one, and talk to those still on the front lines of defending freedom. 

The Scratch

It was a much needed break. The morning had consisted of the appraiser wandering through the house and a couple of guys that were here to haul away some of the larger pieces of furniture that we have and did not want to risk our backs getting out of the house. Unfortunately, they left a huge scratch on the floor that I now need to figure out how to repair. 

And so, it is with this background having come from Lowes where I attempted to buy materials to repair the scratch that I arrived at the picnic. My worries of the world and moving soon evaporated as I was engulfed by old and new friends and coworkers. Wow, it was so good to see everyone and to catch-up on life and what has been happening back at the workplace with the projects that we started and the directions that we intended to move the organization. There were some who could not attend and they were missed, but that is how life happens. 

It was a great afternoon that I did not want to end, but all good things end. I hope that I am around for next year's edition of the picnic and that we can stay better in touch in the meantime.
