Wow, that went fast. Summer teaching starts up at Southern Man's university today; next week at the local community college where he adjuncts on the side. At eight in the morning. So for the next nine weeks Southern Man will have his nose firmly pressed against the grindstone, dawn to dusk, but only four days a week. The upside is that like most teachers Southern Man has his nine-month salary distributed as twelve checks so summer work is "extra" money in the bank. The down side is that it's already earmarked and mostly for things that are necessary but not necessarily fun. But Southern Man is keenly aware that he has two jobs while many have none so he'll quit bitching and get back to work instead. Lord, You have blessed me beyond measure. Thanks! Amen.
