Today was one shitty day.

Joyce died in June. We were together for 23 years. Her daughter came today to clean out her stuff -- clothing, jewelry toiletries and so forth. Daughter had been putting it off for the same reason I didn't look forward to it. Watching her stuff disappear.

Her daughter is great and we have been supportive of each other, thank goodness for her, my family and my friends.

Then came the photographs... places we had been together. London, Lands End, Oxford, San Francisco, Maine, Cape Cod... places I will likely never visit again because of the memories.

Included in the photos, of course were those of other people who are no longer with us..

I am typing here with tears in my eyes.

I am a 70 year old guy with not too much to look forward to.

Cherish the ones you are with.

It's 10:00 a.m. on Sunday.

Where's my fukin' L.O.L. Cats?

So I applied for a job today.

I am near broke. Partly due to some bad decisions on my part and the rest is because I am paying part of my mother's expenses at assisted living for dementia care at $72k per year....save your money now, partners.

Anyway, I live in an upscale neighborhood. 1/8 mile from my house is a King's supermarket. It is very upscale..to the point that I used to see John DeLorean shopping in this store. So I figured I would apply there for a full time job and get, maybe $12. per hour. That would be enough to cover the slack each month.

N.J. minimum wage is $8.25 per hour. Interviewer says the pay is $9.00 per hour. BUT, nobody gets to work more than 29 hours per week. On top of this, there are union dues. So where is the union during all of this?

This store charges customers more than some of the other supermarkets in the area. W.T.F.?

So I got hit by a U.S.P.S. truck last night.

Then, the guy takes off. (Hit and Run). I followed him to get information to report the problem. He sees me following and increases his speed. He stopped at a stop light and I cellphone-photoed the numbers on the back of his truck....

Then, to avoid me, he blows through a red light.

Consensus among my friends is that I am S.O.L.

Any other opinions?

I am going to file a police report so at least I am covered by my comprehensive.
