I am back and firmly in control having spent the entire last week on super, special assignment.
First, it was the return after the Lost Reunion Tour II from the week prior. As chronicled earlier, the LRT II was an overwhelming success and save for the one mistaken gender identity issue with the Rat Bastard, I would say it went off flawlessly. Upon my return, I was then thrown into a full 2-1/2 day visit and work session with my boss from Dilbertland; you know, my real job. All of that went extremely well, but it is time consuming. Following his departure, I was then called upon to assist in the yearly inventory function in Dilbertland that entails counting every part and widget that is ever produced, including those with real life-like dust and dirt! It's a great gig. As a small reward after this week, I told Mrs. Kfred to, "Pack it up, we are going away for the weekend". I had earlier received a coupon in the mail from one of the hotels I stay at during the year offering a "Buy one night, the second is on Us" promotion. Drawing on all of my knowledge gained from Dickie the Peap over the years to recognize a good deal when I see one, I immediately booked my reservations and headed off. I just hadn't realized how fast the place had declined since I last visited.
Oh well, it could have been worse. It could have rained.
