Fess up, who should be working

Just perusing BF in between jobs. Kind of a relaxed atmosphere around town today, tomorrow is our town's big yearly celebration, and the guys smoking ribs next door are making me hungry.

I work from home, too. Commenting on forums is just one of the advantages! Going out for a ride at random times throughout the day is, of course, another.

Nobody should be working at least not how we typically work in the world. Shorter and fewer work days, more pay and less stress. We need more time for riding and relaxing and living life.

I Should be working now, but I work in a factory & I'm waiting for product to come down the line...In 7 weeks! Until then, every post here, just like every other post I do on BF will be from the crapper on the second floor.

Don't be mad at me. "Get LOST!" & "Don't get found" and "Friday is a good day for you all to take vacation" Were all direct orders from my supervisor at this mornings production meeting.

I should be out working on a rental property that I need to get cleaned up / fixed up and re-rented, but double hernia surgery Monday has me home and off the bike. Dr's instructions are to lift no more than 10 lbs for 6 weeks - It's gonna be a long 6 weeks I'm black & blue in places I don't want to be B&B !!

Almost 100 million Americans do not work, for whatever reason, according to the census.

There are only so many squiggly little lines of data I can get through before I need a few minutes worth of distractions to refocus...

I have previously posted:

A radio commentator, Dennis Prager, once suggested that one should take a vacation everyday; not to physically “get away,” but do something different during the day, and that’s posting for me.
