Today, a ripe, fully aged, decrepit ol’ man begins a new part-time job. It’s rather intimidating to be beginning again after all these years, doing something I know little about. On the other hand it’s exciting; a new adventure!
Beginning today I’ll be handling and processing medical specimens. Not surgical tissues this time, but blood and other bodily fluids. I will be part of the team that gets them ready to transport to the main lab in Memphis, Tennessee. There. You now know as much about the new job as I do.
I’ll be meeting and getting to know new people. Most of them, I expect, will be quite nice and will become treasured parts of my tiny circle of friends. Perhaps they’ll even become grist for my blog, or characters in a new book?
This new job I’m going to is with an international company. Yep. Headquarters are in Sydney, Australia!
Wish me luck as I prepare for another adventure, pushing me inexorably toward my final retirement! Mentioning retirement, how about hopping over to Amazon to get a copy or three of New Yesterdays to augment my semi-retirement income? With each book sold, I am getting the princely sum of around 35 cents. To quote an old and dear friend, it’s “better than nothing, but not much”! Thanks so much for coming by today!
