From a former life ...

Since I have been blogging, my email can pile up for a couple of days if I am not careful to check it. I don't know if doing this satisfies some need to *exhibit* (As Mr. Bennet says in Pride and Prejudice) or if it takes up part of the mental allotment of time for keeping in touch.

There was one email that caught my attention right away. It was from FIU. It informed me that my doctor's office had called and left a message that an appointment date had been changed due the absence of the gentleman I had an appointment to see.

Wha'? I retired from FIU six years ago. And the message had been left there on the voice mail of someone I have never met. Wasn't it nice that I was tracked down? The place where I used to live my weekday life is pretty efficient. But, they were dubbed by me, back then, as the dream team.

I guess they still are ...

Dream Team still keeps in touch with a Dream Employee. Seems yer both well regarded from opposite ends of the spectrum!

Kind of you to think so. I didn't know you could do *this* from the place where you live your weekday life ... or are you under the pecan trees?

Am at the other place. We only jump in and then quickly back out. Being in contact keeps us happy, so productivity is increased. :)

Lucky. We no longer have access to the other world from our weekday life. Not sure why; this is a day-shift issue.

I agree with the productivity thing. That's much better than staying on line and doing college research.

No matter what shift ...

Oh, and I was referring to some of the students where I used to work, not present company. Sorry I was not more clear about that.
