Uncle Roger's Notebooks of Daily Life
My life is, to me, ripe with frequent challenges, occasional successes, spontaneous laughter, adequate tears, and enough *life* to last me a lifetime. To you, however, it surely seems most pedestrian. And therefore, I recycle the name I used previously and call this my Notebooks of Daily Life. Daily, because it's everyday in nature, ordinary. These conglomeration of events that are my life are of interest to me because I live it, perhaps mildly so to those who are touched by it, and could only be of perverse, morbid curiosity to anyone else. Yet, I offer them here nonetheless. Make of them what you will, and perhaps you can learn from my mistakes.

Your boss offers you a choice of a bonus of $300 or an extra day off anytime during the next year. Which would you pick? I know which one I'd go for.
Here it is September again and the kids are back in school. Which brings to mind my own educational career (such as it was). So here's your homework for September: Describe at least one significant, formative experience from your own school days. Extra credit for additional posts.
A lot of people get the day off for Labor day. If you are one of them, how did you spend it? We went shopping.
