As of January 1, Wild Bill is retired. I never thought it would happen. When he was working, he always loved Wednesday 'Hump Day' as it was the halfway point to his weekend. He also often laughed at me when I wasn't sure what day it was since retiring a few years ago.
Things have moved slowly this week. Yesterday we took down the Christmas tree and unpacked 5 more boxes from the garage. We also saw the new Sherlock Holmes movie at the early bird special, but skipped the grocery store when we saw too many cars in the parking lot.
I got up at 5 am this morning and about 6:45 Wild Bill sauntered out and sat down in his chair in the front room. He looked over at me and asked...
"What day is it...Wednesday... or ... Thursday?"
"Well" I said "Yesterday was Tuesday."
"Yeah, it was election day in Iowa" he said "So...it's Wednesday then?"
"Yeah, Wednesday" I said "Hump Day. We're halfway to...NO WHERE!"
learning things the hard way.
