Woodpecker

Wondering how to
count the syllables of "&"
drove from my mind the

slow soft tap-tap-tap of a
woodpecker in the cool mist.
Or: Don't let a technology distract you from the use you wished to make of it.

Life is going well, mostly, but still far too much work. Haven't had a day off since February 25th, 71 hours last week. One more week of this madness, then we'll be done.

Weather is warming up, but I've said that before so I will say no more. Birds are active, the goldenrod is in bloom, crocuses came and went. And so it goes.

Get some sleep, dear friend.

I have a soft spot for woodpeckers. The Woodpecker! is a feature of Going Postal - Terry Pratchett.

My goodness, do you get paid by the hour, comp time later, some compensation for all of those hours? Saying all that, it would be nice to get a steady paycheck no matter what the hours.

Thank you, my dears.

Zhoen, there is something quite wonderfully primeval and deep-dark-woodsy about a woodpecker at work.

Joe, I am at least paid by the hour, so February and March will be very good financially.

April is mostly good, so far. It'll be less exciting than I had hoped (see next post).
