Let's start with the new granddaughter.
Then I have a full-time job that I love most of the times. I didn't opt out in the time allotted so now I have a 401k and I've got insurance.
Don't let the GOP fool you-- health insurance is a necessity and could easily be paid for if people had a living wage and not a minimum one. Executives and CEOs could take a pay cut or not so many bonuses so the people doing the grunt work could survive. but I've digressed---
Mostly I've been spending my free time reading. I've got old literary journals, some of them no longer around, like Bananafish and Other Voices, and I refuse to take these journals into another year unread. Some are old--
In one story a woman goes to a phone booth to make a call -- that's how old they are. I've also bee reading some short story collections and the stories in the Harpers magazines that just keep stacking up.
