The 'To Do' List Shrinketh

The 'To Do' list shrinketh and passeth away
The tasks fulfilled in many ways
Lest too much efficiency mar the world
(with apologies to Alfred Lord Tennyson)

Two days ago I wrote the list of things that needed to be done, some of them on the order of minutiae and some of them important enough to be written in capital letters.

For the last couple of days I've been steadily working my way through them, crossing them off triumphantly as each is accomplished.

The remaining item is to write my presentation on the Suez Canal, pulling together notes already taken and reading the last of the books on the subject that I've checked out from the library.

I find that I enjoy the Learning in Retirement classes, but not enough to continue. I don't like the feeling of weeks going by with a deadline hanging over my head, especially when it's about a topic for which I feel little or no passion. I've decided to enroll in a class only when it truly grabs my interest, and then give my presentation early on, so that I can sit back and enjoy the subsequent sessions.

Live and learn.

My calendar says that today is Armed Forces Day. I salute you, all who have served our country, both living and dead. I hope that our country does more than give lip service to our servicemen and women, and fixes the VA procedures for benefit assignmment. Waiting years for benefits? They deserve better.

Lovely weather. Enjoy your day, my friends.
