I need some serious time off.

Iโ€™m getting to that stage where I can sneeze too hard, sleep wrong or stand up too fast and I could put myself in a wheelchair.

In short…

Some will understand. Others will have to have this explained to them.

I used to be Riggs. Now Iโ€™m suddenly Murtaugh.

I still got a little Riggs in me. I show up every day. And do you know why?



Health, iOS 14, Work

Well, my leg didnโ€™t fall off. The pain subsided over night. I think this may be an incurable malady called…getting old.

Iโ€™m not ancient, but Iโ€™m not a teenager. I heal slower than I did in previous decades. Every day is a new pain, and Iโ€™m just going to have to adapt. I need to start stretching and exercising more. Keep loose. I think that would help greatly. We shall see.

iOS 14 is downloading to this device as I type this and I am fairly excited about the new design.

Widgets on the home screen and I can make it more my own.

Yes, Android has always done this and itโ€™s (was) one of my biggest pet peeves about Apple. It was also one of my greatest loves of Android. So this makes me a happy camper.

And then thereโ€™s work. I have two stores in inventory this week and had Monday off because I worked the weekend.

And thatโ€™s okay! Iโ€™m the full time guy and I have two part timers Iโ€™m responsible for. They do pretty well for me and we got each otherโ€™s backs. I figure they shouldnโ€™t have to work every weekend so they split the stores (four of them) one weekend and I take the next weekend.

Thereโ€™s no reason these weekend deals the company makes should make all of us come to a full stop Sat/Sun.

This is how we make our money.

The travel time (paid) and mileage (paid) between stores means Iโ€™m listening to podcasts like itโ€™s my job those days and the work isnโ€™t so bad.

At least itโ€™s clean.


Weโ€™re filling hand sanitizers and distributing gallons of the stuff throughout the stores every day.

My hands are so clean I can heal lepers.
