Notes for a Friday....

First, the WIXYmobile is now back on the road burning gas. The problem turned out to be the crank sensor.One friend did the work while another loaned me the money to cover parts and labor.

Next, I was never a big Michael Jackson fan, so I won't say much about his passing. It will be interesting to us who were around in August, 1977 to see if Jackson's death will have the same all around effect that the passing of Elvis Presley did..

I dodged another bullet as far as work is concerned. The company I work for will have a shutdown at the plant in which I'm assigned. My department manager will have me doing some special projects at the other Cleveland location. I now will be able to use my remaining vacation time at my digression.

And Shaq got traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Ho hum...

Yesterday was a strange day in many ways.

i am so glad you still are working, i was especially saddened yesterday, first by the loss of Farrah Fawcett, then by Michal Jackson. i remember listening to his music. you are correct i think, though, he will have the effect that the King of Rock had. another one of my favorites. what can you say about us young whipper snappers? no accounting for taste, i know.
truly blessed though, to see you are still working, i have been praying for you and your family. has your son got any work yet?

I'm glad to hear your car is working for you again and that you are still holding onto your job, Cliff.

Hope you and Kathy have a good weekend. :)

My admiration for M.J.'s tremendous talent is canceled out by my disgust for his indiscretions later in life. It was a sad life, I think. Even sadder that it ended so soon.

Glad you remain unscathed at your workplace. I'm in the healthcare field, so I'm safe...for now...

Ms Hen said...

I am going to just say the same as Margaret. She described how I feel about the whole m.j. thing.

As for you auto.. yay... glad it is working.

Yeah, they say Michael was an American icon, and there is no denying that he sold a lot of records in his time, and really helped prop up a hurting music industry at the time. However, there is also no escaping that he was one weird dude with a pretty sad childhood, if you can say he had one, and he grew up to not exactly provide a stellar role model.
