Being out of work isn’t so bad — at least for today

Mistakes happen and I’ve made more than my share. So, please, don’t get the wrong idea. I am not throwing stones. If anything, the person who made this mistake has my sympathy and support.

But at the same time, I’m really glad I don’t have to take the phone calls. Hope the old boss is having fun.

And for the non-Iowans among us, the governor is Terry Branstad. Calling him Brandstand, I’m sorry to say, is a mistake I have also made.

Photo credit: I cancelled my newspaper subscription on Feb. 27 — and that’s another story for another day: How even an old newspaper guy like me can discover he doesn’t really miss the daily newspaper. Anyway, I borrowed this photo from Dan Clark, a Facebook friend. I hope he doesn’t mind.
