Quote of the Day - 'Who are you and how did you get in here?' 'I'm a locksmith. And, I'm a locksmith.'
Well, I don't know that much. But, I can give you my perspective from where I sit.
Today. Right here from the chair in my office.
It's sunny outside, and it will likely be sunny again next year. It rained some today, as well as this past week. It will likely rain again next year, I'm guessing. There are beautiful white clouds in the sky, and snow in the mountains. I can't see the beach from my office, but I suspect most of the water is still there, thank God. I'm terribly sorry for those that recently got way too much ocean water, and we're doing what we can to help from this corner of the world. It's been quite a year for natural disasters.
It's been a little chilly outside this past week, and I'm glad for the heater under my desk.
Cars are backed up on the 73 freeway, but not too bad. It's the only freeway I can see from my office, so I don't get a big perspective on that one. I have noticed that as the year has gone by, I've seen more and more expensive cars on the freeway. There was one bad wreck, complete with fire trucks and ambulances, but we heard later that everyone was wearing seat belts and came out fine.
They've been doing some road construction on Jamboree. It will be nice when it's done, but it's just nice to have roads.
Planes are taking off and landing from John Wayne Airport, and they have been all day. I can remember a day not that long ago when they were all grounded, and I'm hopeful that doesn't happen again.
Everyone in the office is healthy, and we all enjoyed a nice holiday. Most folks here are planning on staying home for New Year's because it's safer.
Maybe it's because we're getting older.
Paper is stacked up on my desk, but neatly organized in the file room. We've gotten off to a good start for a new firm, and with all that's been going on, I haven't had much time off.
I went back to Cape Cod earlier this year for my stepfather's funeral, and my Mom's been having a tough time since then. She and I lost my Dad some ten years ago. Even so, she still gets around, and I enjoy occasionally writing about her. My daughter's back visiting her right now, and she's seen her Uncle, Aunt and four cousins in Baltimore, and might get to see my other brother in Western Massachusetts.
All in all, we're lucky to have the things we do, and the opportunity to help those that don't.
MIPTC is tremendously grateful for you, our readers. I wish you success and a prosperous new year, filled with all the best.
