It’s a Saturday and it hasn’t been such a bad day. Of course I still hope for a Monday through Friday job but since that doesn’t seem to be happening, the retail world beckons and who am I to resist its call? I really don’t have much say in the matter anyhow.
I heard from the late Hyman Gross’ late companion Joan’s niece who was upset to hear about Hyman passing. She found out and when she called the office where Hyman used to work to tell them they were all pretty much upset about it as well. A lot of people liked Hyman and a lot of people miss him, Bill & myself included of course.
In the land of the living things went on as usual. Harpy stopped by the cigar shack to say hello for a few minutes and it was good to see him. The store wasn’t exactly busy today but sales wise it did very well.
It was Calvin, Bradley and myself today and though it wasn’t full of laughs like it is when Thomas is around it was a good day nonetheless. I did not have an opportunity to see Bill this morning, we missed each other by just a few minutes.
Since I can’t depend on NJ Transit to show up according to schedule I have to get to the bus stop earlier and take the first bus that shows up into the city. He was returning from bus driving to Atlantic City and headed right to bed before heading out again to drive once more to the casinos. That means I won’t see him until tomorrow which is better than not seeing him at all.
I also had a good talk with Annemarie on the phone this afternoon. I certainly look forward to seeing her next month as well as my nephew Earl who I haven’t seen in a few years. Bill thinks he is going to tower over us and I tend to agree. Now it’s just me and Bradley in the store.
Not much is going on, this area slows down considerably after 7:00 and on a weekend it’s almost like a tomb. Now I am home.
Bradley was not feeling too well, we agreed he was going to close but I closed instead, allowing him to go home, take a Xanax and some allergy medication. Don’t know whether or not medications like that should be mixed, but I guess Bradley will find out soon enough.
I guess the Path trains were running since there was no long line at the bus terminal. A few families and the usual assortment of assorted nuts. I read about the Buena Vista Social Club and the Troggs in the latest Mojo Magazine while listening to some heavy dub from the Blood & Fire record label on the iPod.
Nothing really to watch on the television tonight, so I’m watching a repeat of True Blood which should be starting a new season in a few weeks. Tomorrow is Sunday and I don’t think I’m going to be writing. It’s a day off and I’ve got laundry to do. Hope you all have an adequate day.
