Like sand through the hourglass

What a great week.  I don't have to go anywhere.  For the first time in three weeks I get to spend every night in my own bed.  The temperaturer finally broke 80.  I got to wear shorts playing golf.  I had a letter to the editor printed (making me 10 for 11 letters printed vs submitted).  But here's the highlight.  You all know how much Malta means to me and how great my friends are.  Two weeks from now, I will be attending my high school 30th class reunion. I know that you are all shocked that, given the maturity of my posts, I've been out of school that long, but it's true.  Last night, the reunion committee called.  They were having trouble coming up with a keynote speaker and someone suggest having me get up and talk.  I told them I would do it if they couldn't find anyone else and this morning my agent said I was booked. 

I'm not gonna lie.  I'm thrilled to be able to stand in front of all these great people and tell them my take on Malta, life and our great class.  I will be working hard to put it together and keep it under two hours.

After the jump you can read the op-ed by dipshit John Baden that fired me up to write my letter to the ed.  I hope you all enjoy it.

Some things for the record

Honestly, I've been busy. I miss blogging every day. Not only am I not posting, even worse I'm not reading anyone else.  This weekend marks the first weekend in four weeks that I will be in Bozeman. So there's one reason.

Another reason is that the shithole motel I stay at in Williston doesn't have wifi.

Another reason is that I haven't figured out the "vpn" thing so I can post and not get relieved from duty.

Another reason is that since April 7th, I've driven over NINE THOUSAND MILES FOR WORK!!!!  NINE FUCKING THOUSAND MILES IN TWO MONTHS!!  That's almost as much as I did all of last year.  Well, that's between us kids. I told Uncle Sam it was a little more than that.  But here's the deal with that.  9000 miles in 60 days is 150 miles a day.  Hey, I can live with that.  Here's my driving schedule. I leave Bozeman. Go to Powell, Wyoming (a really nice little town) meet a customer. Go to Cody, Wyoming (where I think I may retire) meet another customer, and then back to Bozeman.  Total miles that day over 500 inone day. I love XM.

I'm busier than a one legged man at an ass kicking contest.  I'll be around this Friday with a glass of Canada's finest to get caught up with all of you. 

God bless this merry band of malcontents.

Blah, blah, blah.


Please note: the Diane Lane references have been temporarily put on hold until further notice.  This does not mean that MRM has even begun to quit burning candles in his window for her. It just means he couldn't think of a way to weave her into this post unitl now.  Need to edit the "labels" thing to include her.
