Not only did Elisson win the last Haiku Challenge, he
has unknowingly provided me with blog fodder.
How wise is our government to provide us with a warning...
er, advance notice... to expect the census form in the mail.
What a clever way to spend tax dollars in double labor, paper,
ink, postage. I also took it as a way to insult my intelligence
but perhaps I'm being too sensitive.
Anyway, Elisson's post caused me to ponder what I was doing
when all those other censuses were happening...
1960- nine years old, living with parents and three siblings in
Uniontown, Ohio. The last sibling wasn't born until 1964, a
year or two after we moved to a farm in Portage County.
1970- Student at the University of Akron, majoring in nursing.
Soon to change major to education.
1980- Living in Florida for six years. Married for two years.
Working a shit job that lasted nine years.
1990- Still in Florida, still married. Working for the local
2000- Still in Florida, widow for three years. Five years, at
this point, welding under a microscope.
2010- Still in Florida but unemployed for the last 15 months.
New love in my life and attempting to start my own business.
That would be my Reader's Digest condensed version.
May we all be around to blog, in much more detail, the
happenings that take us to 2020.
What was going on in your life?
