I quickly learned that everyday is Saturday but Saturday. Anything you would have done on Saturday the involves driving to a store, do it during the week when they are less busy. No sense fighting the crowds.

Congratulations, SnappyTom. It's Monday, and you are NOT going to work. How wonderful does that feel!

Congratulations snappytom! Enjoy your well deserved retirement! I too got caught up in the OMY during the pandemic but this weekend said enough and started the conversation with the corporate gods on the bye-bye date!
