It’s the first week back at work after Thanksgiving, and we’re half-way through it. It’s always tough to come back after an extended period off, but, the bills have to be paid.
An administrative comment: One of the reasons people can’t comment on the older posts is that I set the commenting period to 7 days. After that, comments are not allowed on that post. I did this for several reasons. The first is that almost all comments that any of my posts have drawn are made within the first three days of it being posted. The second is that I often don’t have as much time as I’d like to keep track of things here. The final one is that what annoys me on some other sites are “zombie threads.” That’s where someone posts a comment on a post that’s a year or two old, leading you to wonder why they bothered, or restarting a long-settled battle. So after much experimentation, the 7 day limit is going to stand.
Moving on, tourist season is over, and it was a successful one for the local businesses.
But now winter is starting, meaning cold weather and putting away the summer clothing
Which means it’s time for me to work up my budget requests at work
and come up with suitable justifications for various items
along with keeping the other supervisors away from some things
I think I’m going to be fairly successful.
