Today is my first earned Friday in a long time. I worked 40 hours. Yes, yes, many folks worked more than 40 hours and I am sure many worked harder. I bow to their superior dedication and motivation, and yet I feel that I have earned the glass of wine I am currently enjoying.
The picture above shows a picture our friend Tracy gave Steven for his birthday one year. At the time, we all lived in the same town and went out almost every Friday night. Steven and Tracy’s husband, Ron, worked at the same place, which had payday every other Friday. Sometimes, they would come up with variations on TGIF. Their favorite turned out to be Thank God It’s Friday And Pay Day.
I just now took that picture of the plaque. Then I backed up and took a picture of the wall it is on, just because we have a lot of things on our wall.
Steven and I spent some of our Friday sitting on our front porch. It is lovely to be home with my beloved husband. And yet, I will be delighted when it is safe again to go out and sit at a bar, enjoying my friends as well.
Here are Tracy and I at the Waterfront Grille in Herkimer, NY. Here’s hoping she can return one day soon for a repeat performance!
And here is a picture of Tracy and Steven, taken the same day.
So this is my Lame Post Friday. Happy memories of Friday’s past, hopes for happy Friday’s in the future. That is a common theme these days. However, I would like to say that today is a happy Friday, too. I hope it also is for you.
