Really didn't feel like getting out of bed today.. But the sun is shining, it seems summer is breaking out here..,
The dogs are being all needy and playful. Couldn't even finish my first cup of tea in peace.
Updated my antivirus software, told it to do a "quick scan" and then it spent 20 minutes doing that.. and my system pretty much slowed down to the pace of a dead cow with broken ankles for the entire duration.
If I'm not careful, I'm going to turn into a "grumpy old man" a few decades early..

It was an interesting trip though. On day one a student disclocated her knee cross country skiing. We had to carry her on a stretcher through about 200 yards of knee deep snow. Her father was a chaperone, so he took her to the hospital. Then I lost another chaperone that day because a death in the family. It left us pretty short handed for the trip, but luckily the rest was smooth sailing.

What a week. Next week is either going to be legendary or it's going to be a disaster. There is an outside chance I may have to resign my job because I disagree with policy. Good to have to put your money where your mouth is occasionally!

It's really just fun escapism to play the lottery though, for a few bucks you can daydream about what it would be like to be instantly rich.

I get what you're saying, I too think playing the lottery is a waste of money because the likelyhood of returns is just very, very small, but it does offer something besides that.

edit: Oh, lottery profits help education, so technically I benefit from the few dollars I might spend on tickets

I don't think people understand just how miniscule the chance of winning really is.
The odds are astronomical, 1 in 176 million, but somebodys eventually going to win (three winning tickets in this case). So a mere five dollar investment buys you the chance for instant retirement.

The potato mash was tasteless, but everything else was delicious.

I took the dogs back to Jackson yesterday. The house is so quiet without them. It feels wrong. I'm packing up today and heading back south of the border on Sunday. I'll see you guys when I get home next month.
Take care GD.
