Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Not PHB exactly
...but one of the last other survivors of the old Flatline, Comatose, Torpor & Drowse as it existed in the Seventies is pulling the ripcord at the end of next month. He's about the last comrade (a couple of years younger than I am) I esteem: the other two survivors are both females who hit their Peter Principle ceilings a long time ago, and whom I am determined to outlast. It's getting goddamned lonely here: now I think of it, the Eighties cohort, or all of it I was on cordial terms with, has also passed from the scene.

It's Lonely at the Side.

New finding a niche and maintaining it well
getting much harder to do anymore. I do have to admire your stamina.
Any opinions expressed by me are mine alone, posted from my home computer, on my own time as a free American and do not reflect the opinions of any person or company that I have had professional relations with in the past 58 years. meep
New stamina, hell
Inertia (mine and the employers) and luck have combined to keep me in place, plus the practical necessity, given that since 2009 we have gradually devolved into a one-income household, of sending the checks each month to the lienholder and to the good folks who arrange for electricity, natural gas, water, refuse and digital signals* variously to arrive at and/or leave the premises.


*Television not included among these. Of TV service I may say, paraphrasing a hoary (heh-heh) boast, "I've never paid for it in my life."
New political position at work
...has slipped severely following the sudden, unannounced resignation of my management cutout a week ago. Some of the clerical/administrative shit that she couldn't take at $12K above my salary appears poised to land on my plate, and no, I don't get her pay ladled up with her shit. These next five years look to be nasty at BDS. God fucking damn.
New Time to put out feelers? :-( Luck!!!
