December 31, 2015 — Lear C-21

Thursday, December 31 — Slept very warmly last night but not very well . In at 8:20 after visiting CVS Pharmacy for a prescription refill and discovering that — although the pharmacy USED to open at 8 am — they open at 9 am now, so I’ll have to pick up the prescription after employer closes at 5 because . . . .CHEESES, I’ll just roll with the PUNCH today and hope that missing one day’s worth  of  one of my three daily medicines does me no harm. I can’t take the refilled medicine until tomorrow morning because it’s important to keep the regular schedule going with all three. CRIPES A MIGHTY. I did take the other two after arriving at AKM.  Posted the blog from Wednesday at went to work at TGG. Did not see a customer all day. Spent all morning clipping scraps from saved pages. Did not enjoy trail mix lunch. I’m getting tired of trail mix. Spent all afternoon taping and stapling articles with copied pages. The copy bill for all the copying I did this week was $23.40. Chuck the printer understands I will pay him when my employer pays me. Thank God he’s okay with that. Chuck the printer went home at noon. I stayed, working on saved articles until 5. It was a woefully solitary day, but a productive one for AKM. Departed at 5 to return to AKM to check for mail and packages of which there were none, then to pharmacy and Hy-Vee for something interesting for my first dinner of 2016. The only thing that sounded appetizing was an apple pie. No interest in a rotisserie chicken or anything else. The prepared salads in plastic boxes were on sale, so I bought three, two cans of Campbell’s Chicken Gumbo soup, an apple pie and a shaker of Morton no sodium salt substitute for the AKM office. I was home by 6:20, ate a salad and went to bed about 8. Just another day in paradox. Slept okay. Day rating B because of the productive time at employer.

Pictures are of a C-21 that visited Springfield September 4, 2015. The maintenance crew had driven up from Scott to make a repair and graciously allowed me to photograph the interior. Terrific gents! 🙂
