downer days

You not supposed to feel down over whatever happen to you. I mean, you’re supposed to use whatever happen to you as some type of upper, not a downer. Bob Marley

It was a crappy day yesterday.   When my morning commute was remarkably without  the usual horrible traffic, it should have been a sign.  When you do the same thing over and over again, with no expectation of a real breakthrough,  I’m certain that is the definition of insanity.  Without proper instructions or support of the people who developed the software and hardware, I’m supposed to build the test bench, assemble the computers, reprogram them when they don’t work, find the problems in the  supposedly working assemblies – built by other people, meet the schedule (though all the parts were not received until AFTER their schedule said we were ready to deliver finished goods!) and then be able to work on two other “challenges” at the same time.  And then my bosses ask me how its going.   OY.

Dragging myself to work today.  At least my dogs do not have to drag themselves to go for walks.  They are excited to go anywhere.

Oh, to be a dog like Dexter.  Welcome your people with happy excitement.  Chew toys all chewed up.  Biscuits. Sniff the flowers, bushes and drainage grates till someone tells you to “stop! Move on!”   Simple life.

Comet is more of a thinker.  I think he is more like me.  Tends to get exhausted by the rigors of life.   Play in the yard. Lay in the sunshine.  Eat your breakfast.  Hack it up on the floor. Eat it again.

It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt. Mark Twain
