Whoa! What is that sculpture, Dragon? Just art? That's really cool.

It is a boxing club that happens to be in the "Artsy-Fartsy" district.

Hi everyone! Good to see the Weekender is still moving along nicely.

Manta, I agree with Sao that you should just see this as a practice run. Albeit early on in my career, I can think think of a couple of unsuccessful job applications that left me feeling devastated, yet in hindsight I am very glad that they chose someone else.

Vman, enjoy your trip. I‘m sure you checked and all your travel papers are in order, or am I imagining things ?

Way to go Midnight. I’m glad the injury is not holding you back too much. Just be careful not to end up with a left arm right arm difference like Rafael Nadal.

Mrs Haddock is away until Wednesday night, so yet again it’s just the Corgi and I keeping eachother company.

A great start to the week wished for everyone.

Out in a restaurant with colleagues.
I'm getting the impression one lady has taken a disliking to me. Must have peed her off at some stage.... Soldier on.

Oh Monday!
Sorry about the job ML. Allows Something better to come along.
Enjoying some down time between my split shift. May be the last day as I am trying to get some more hours at work to fill the days. Make enough money to ignore work in summer and do some real hiking.
New kitten is crying something fierce as a neighbor cat come by to say hello. Been slowly introducing the two and today had them both in the yard without a boundary. Went well for cats. He is tiny though so we brought him in after a minute and he cried and cried. Little guy. Too cute.

Back from boxing. Did an hour of CrossFit too.

Punching the bag with one hand was tricky, but I focused on honing my right cross. Plus my footwork still needs a lot of improving, so it's a good chance to give it more attention.

Dragon - Wow! Thank you for posting this pic. It's really flattering that this cool sculpture reminded you of me. And your comment is just great!

"Busting down old walls and letting new light shine thru."

Thank you!

Captain - I hope my injury will not last so long to overdevelop the right arm.

Vinny - It some lady doesn't like you, it's her business, not yours.

Time for me to call it a day too.

Have a great one.

VMan, at least it's only one. I upset most of my co-workers on a daily basis. It's a gift I have.

London, or at least my bit of it is living up to its Victorian stereotype by being very foggy outside tonight.

I'm finding that each sober weekend is better than the last one.

We have double checked all the documents. The dates are good Captain

Bim I didn't have to throw any peas. I did have a good laugh when I read your post. Thanks

MB one hour of cross fit after boxing... I don't know what to say.

Back to work tomorrow. This flu has been a tough one. I could use a few more days to recourperate. Plan is ibuprofin, acetaminophen & coffee to get me thru the day. Show up late and leave early. I have lot's of banked time. Got called by work today because of an issue at a remote office that they could not figure out. I knew right away from the e-mail description and had it fixed in no time. I could blame them for not trying hard enough but honestly, the one guy who is smart enough to handle it doesn't get any time to know the systems. The other two don't even know how to try. OK, I see I'll be entring the office with an attitude tomorrow (I'll blame it on the cold meds.).

Try not to let the job situation get you down Manta. I think everything works out how it’s supposed to. There must be something even better in store for you around the next corner ❤️
