My boss’s boss was likely let go today – we received a sudden announcement that he was gone. Everyone on the team is shaken. What does this mean for them? It is like someone died. FOr me, i like and trust my boss, so am staying the course. I will work my plan as approved, check in with him and trust his guidance/feedback. This is why it is so important to have a trustworthy boss – 3 years ago when I did not trust my boss and we went through this, I couldn’t just trust him and keep my head down.
I was in BC when the Red Sox won the World Series in 2004 for their first series win in decades – the last time before today I was in BC. What I remember about that game was how crowded the bar was. The year before in 2003, we tried to watch the Yankees play in the World Series but all local bars were tuned into HOckey Games, but in 2004 every Bar was tuned into the Red Sox game since the anticipation was so high. It was fun to be a part of.
He is from a farm town, and knew he needed to move to the city after his town had a “Drive Your Tractor to Work” day :). He drives two hours a day to help pay the bills before starting his day job in an office.
Had client meetings all day, then trip to BC. Busy day tomorrow. Then my busy walk calms down a little 🙂
This will be a very busy week for me. But Day 1 of the busy week is already over. So I am already part way thorugh it and will make it to the weekend 🙂
The hero in The Patriot dreams of being a Folk Singer, and expressed himself here and there in wonderful impromptu performances in Amsterdam. Those scenes got me hooked on Folk Music this weekend, and I am don’t know that there was a greater Folk musician than Tim Hardin, something I’m really coming to believe over this past weekend of listening to various artists. A few years ago, Rolling Stone did a nice piece on him:
Our dog is nearly 12 and is in failing physical and mental shape, but it still continues to shed just like a young dog. I can’t believe how much he is shedding now that summer is upon us.
