The first comment on the OP alludes to waking up with a dagger in your back - well, if AT&T did put a dagger in the back of Linux the poetic justice would be enough to make it worth it - IMHO.

Not Unix... rofl.

Day 8 - living on borrowed time.

Picked up a book, something light and quick from Goethe.

“It is a delightful sensation, dear Marianna,” said Wilhelm, “to remember by gone times and old harmless delusions, particularly when we have attained an elevation from whence we can look around us, and survey the journey we have traveled. It is so pleasant to call to mind with satisfaction the many obstacles which with painful feelings we may often have considered as insuperable, and to compare all that we now are, with what we were then endeavoring to become. But inexpressibly happy do I feel at this moment, when I can speak to you of the past, and look forward into those bright regions of the future, through which we shall wander together hand in hand!”

"The President has provided a detailed justification for the Order based on national security needs, and enjoining the operation of [executive order] would interfere with the President’s unique constitutional responsibilities to conduct international relations, provide for the national defense, and secure the nation,"
U.S. District Judge Anthony Trenga, Eastern District Court of Virginia in Alexandria

The executive order was put , and still is, on hold by federal judges in Hawaii and Maryland.

Good morning/afternoon/dead of night (depending on where you are at)

Day 7 of living on borrowed time.

No night terrors as I slept last night and I am so grateful for that.

I want a cigarette so bad. I'm going cold turkey, without nicotine patches or gums and the desire is getting a wee little bit less.

Real coffee also - decaf is an abomination and it's inventor likely has their own circle in hell.

As I type this the sun is rising, the window in my den is such that the first rays of light stream directly in and fall on my hands as I type.

I can hear the birds outside rising with it and traffic on the road is picking up as it does each morning. In our town rush hour is really only rush half hour and it comes early.

Joyce's son had another baby, with the help of his wife ;-), number two grand son for her. Mother and child doing well.

My brother's oldest son is back with his ex and his kids. His dad thinks they might make it, thinks they WILL make it.

My daughter is in love..

The book of rules says that I can lift more than 10 lbs starting today, but not to over due it still.

Finally - Ukraine 4
// didn't see this coming
A federal control board overseeing Puerto Rico's finances amid a dire economic crisis announced Thursday that it appointed Ukraine's former finance minister as its executive director.

The board's chairman said Natalie Jaresko served during a critical time in Ukraine's history from 2014 to 2016 as it faced a deep recession.

"Ukraine's situation three years ago—like Puerto Rico's today—was near catastrophic, but she worked with stakeholders to bring needed reforms that restored confidence, economic vitality and reinvestment in the country and its citizens. That's exactly what Puerto Rico needs today," said chairman Jose Carrion.

The killer of former Russian State Duma deputy Denis Voronenkov has been identified, Ukrainian Interior Ministry spokesman Artem Shevchenko said.

"His identity has been established, he is a citizen of Ukraine," he told Interfax-Ukraine on Thursday.

Shevchenko did not name the killer.

As reported, Voronenkov was shot dead in central Kyiv on Thursday. The killer was wounded by the ex-deputy's security guard and died later in hospital.

The Kyiv-based (Observer) news portal said referring to its sources that Voronenkov's killer was on the wanted list. "The killer was born in 1988. He was wanted by Dnipro law enforcement officers for committing crimes under Articles 205 and 209 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (sham business and legalization of proceeds from crime)," the Observer reported.
