So it's been a busy week as usual, and I feel like I've got less done this week than I normally do, even that may not necessarily be the case. My boss is sending me more work, which is good, because I just like to work hard. Sometimes it's extremely satisfying to see a mountain of work ahead, dig in, and at the end of the week, take a look back and realize you did make a difference. Always a good thing for me. Plus I look at things as how much did I help others achieve their goals, so it's satisfying as well to see others succeed, even if I only helped just a little.
Went to the dinner theater the other night and saw an AMAZING show called Buddy - the Buddy Holly Story. WOW! The story of his musical career, as short lived as it was, and his attitude towards doing HIS music HIS way. Very inspiring. And while his music is one more era back from me (but not by much), I still greatly appreciated the music, the talents on the stage, and even sung along with several of the tunes and greatly enjoyed myself. And I've learned to pace myself when eating at an all-you-can eat buffet like that, so at least by intermission I don't feel like needing to go to the "pressing room" to get all my juice squeezed out (bonus points for those who get the reference, provided I remembered it correctly).
The weekend ahead looks promising. Saturday might have a little rain ahead, but that's never stopped me. I don't have anything specific on the agenda, so that means catching up on all the other things I haven't completed at home.
On the genealogical front, I finally after weeks of seeking found a global connection for science fiction author A.E. van Vogt. I'd been hunting off and on for awhile, so this was a nice feeling to set him aside and move on to another. I've been convinced to take up a connection for the late Toni Morrison, so I'm building out profiles at this stage, hoping that one of her lines will open her up a bit and lead to a connection... somewhere. We'll see.
