Happy Solstice, Everyone!
What is the most enduring symbol of the Holiday Season?  A Christmas Tree?  A Menorah?  A Yule log?  A Nativity?  A big Visa bill come January? None of the above. The oldest and most widespread symbol of Winters festiv...

In my dream - Me, Admiral Karen and six of our friends were hanging out in L.A. We were looking for a movie, and so I got a newspaper. Nothing looked interesting until I turned the movie page over and there, hidden amon...

I often feel lonely in crowds, but I never feel alone in Nature. The Colorado National Monument is a suburban National Park. The small city of Grand Junction is right at the bottom of the canyons - my Mother even lives o...

Gentleman of Leisure Report, Day 369: 
Well there is a lovely, symmetrical number: 3-6-9. A good one to end on.
Yes, it's true. I am breaking ranks with my fellow no-account miscreants. Tomorrow I clock in for the first time at the Bay Front Inn, a small, independet motel down by the roundabout near the wharf.
I will be doing Front Desk, with a side helping of Marketing, Social Media and Content Providing. I LOVE that I am back in the Hospitality Industry.
After 17 months (and 300,000 words of GoL reports) I am leaving the League of Leisure and setting sail into the strange, unfamiliar waters of gainful employment. 
Its going to be a weird transition. Even though I have been (as one friend put it) "the most un-unemployed person I've ever come across", it will still be rough to HAVE to be some place, on time, consistently, wearing actual clothes and having to pay attention. 
For awhile I may be a bit cross when I am online. I could get snippy. I could disappear from the Information Superhighway for a bit, as I struggle to find a place for this 40 hour-a-week thang in my busy schedule. 
Trust though that I will be around, and that Reports may surface from time to time. (I also have a few blog posts planned with the "best of" the GoL reports). But as of this afternoon I am tendering my resignation from the ranks of the layabout. 
As of this afternoon I am wanted. And that is a very lovely feeling to have again.
(And yes, there was champagne.)
