By now my followers know that I’ve been retired since 2010. So how is it I declared to have two days off this week? You see I have a regular set of activities that include lunch at my Senior Center, church on sunday and breakfast 6 days a week at Jube’s restaurant at precisely 6:00 a.m.. I never need to order because the chef, Dave, knows what I want and starts cooking my breakfast before the door opens at 6 a.m. sharp. The same goes for Ed & Terry, the other two guys waiting for the doors to open. We’re what are known as regulars. We sit in the same booths, order the same things off the menu and make fun of ourselves and the cook, Dave. It’s an enjoyable way to start your day.
Tomorrow I’m taking the day off. Monday I’m taking the day off. You see tonight there’s a snowstorm heading our way that promises to dump 6″-8″ of snow overnight. I have no intention in getting out in that kind of snow and driving anywhere, especially on a sleepy Sunday morning. I’ll be making my own breakfast and sleeping in. Monday is my 2nd day off in a row. The reason for that is the fact that Jube’s Restaurant is always closed on Mondays. Also my Senior Center will be closed for lunch because it’s a holiday, Presidents Day. So there you have it, two days off for a man that has every minute of every day off.
