I’M BACK!

on Nov 10, 2019 in: History, Personal

Nothing like getting sick to take the wind out of one’s sails. I’m hardly ever sick, which came in handy back in my corporate drone days. I would use my sick leave for vacation time. Or pretend to be sick when I wanted a day off. Shocking to some...
