|Am I concerned? Not really.|
Folks, I've never had a problem of what to write about. Ever since I could write (and think), I've always had something to write about or talk about. Now I'm not so presumptuous to believe that what I write or say is of interest to everybody, but I always have something to say.
Oh sure, there was a time when I worried that what I wrote about boring and that no one would want to read it. But you know what folks? You could drive yourself crazy worrying about what others think of you, what you say and what you write about. One of the many benefits of maturity is that you come to realize that you'll never please everyone. Never. So just don't worry about it if what you write doesn't enthrall everyone. It's their loss.

I'm also enjoying getting back to my regular work schedule at the hotel. I'm back to working two nights a week (Wednesday and Thursday from 3 to 11 PM). I don't mind filling in......occasionally...but I don't really want to be on call 24/7 with a hour's notice to show up at work. That's not what I had envisioned as my work schedule when I retired and decided to work part-time. I'm glad that I'm back to working part-time and thus can enjoy my retirement. A proper balance is what I had in mind when I retired and decided to get a part-time job. I think I have that now.

In only a couple of weeks I will be traveling to Philadelphia with my friend Pat to celebrate my 72nd birthday. I've always had something to look forward to in my life. I think having something to look forward to is one of the keys of a happy life. Once you don't have something to look forward to you might as well buy that cemetery plot and die.

I used to work and live and play in Philadelphia during the Sixties and Seventies. I've always wanted to go back and see my old haunts. I doubt if I'll see any of my old friends, most of them have either died or moved. But I would like to walk those old hallowed grounds where I had so many good (and bad) times during my halcyon years.

I don't do the official holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas at this time of my life. I make my own holidays like Bloggerpalooza, class reunions, and family reunions but maybe not so much the family reunion this year after the sparse attendance at this year's family get together.

So you see I've written seven paragraphs already and I have nothing to write about? Remember one of the most successful show on TV? It was called "Seinfeld", the show "about nothing."
Hey folks, here's my blog.....about nothing. Enjoy!

Always something to look forward to in my life!
