Audrey,

What's the point of sailing if there's not another sailboat to race.

I was out at the local reservoir today, walking my dog, enjoying another stress free afternoon when I get a call on my cell phone. Not one to carry a cell phone everywhere I go, but I figure it might come in handy in case I have a heart attack or something. Anyway, it is a guy wanting to know if I would like to interview for a job at his company. He said a friend of mine told him I might be bored after being retired for a few months.

I told him thanks but no thanks. I thought about this forum and laughed to myself. I guess I have truly made it to the other side. Oh yes, I plan to take this 'friend' off my Christmas Card list.

Would he have done the interview out at the reservoir with you while walking your dog?

I bet you'd corrupt him to the ER lifestyle before the second mile...

Never thought about it that way! LOL!

It was always me against the wind!
