So I'll be feeling that pain for a few days.
Fortunately I bought groceries yesterday and have no other obligations this week. Also fortunate - Austin has been relatively cooperative this week. He even cut the grass with no prompting from me. I told him that this might be the last time he has to do it this season. Maybe once more.
Another childhood friend lost a sibling today. He was only 42 and died after a short illness. You know what's weird? When Elvis died at 42 I thought that was SO OLD and now it seems so incredibly young.
Unions aren't that big here in the South. All I ever knew about unions growing up was that it was a strike that put Eastern Airlines out of business and a bunch of my friends from school had parents that worked for Eastern. I grew up just a few miles south of the Atlanta Airport in sort of a blue collar community. Everybody's parents either worked for the airlines or for the Ford or GM plants. A lot of mothers didn't work.
