Vanishing September...

This familiar lament of mine sounds like a broken record but the speed with which time disappears is frustrating me more and more it seems. I look back at September with disgust as I accomplished very little and I have no clue what happened to the time. King Canute references aside, it seems it's me that has to adjust...surprise surprise...
I think my 5 weeks off has something to do with it; when I came back to work, I had missed a lot and catching up proved frustrating and even counter-productive. Thankfully, there were a couple of bright spots; our youngest turned 20 early in the month...another reminder of my own "age"  :)

Happy Birthday James
 Another positive was my discovery of Privateers Bounty Ice Cream...it's vanilla ice cream with salty toffee chunks and black licorice ribbon...polarizing...you'll love it or hate it !!

Privateers Bounty...
In spite of it all, a frustrating month, exacerbated by my continued VW Camper woes and the fact that I got no camping in. September is a wonderful camping month in these parts. To make matters worse, October is now more than half gone.
Sorry for all the negativity, but I'm recording all of this in order to hopefully trigger a better fall, or at least what's left of it.
Ok I'll end on one more positive note; I had a splendid lunch in the cafeteria during the month...

Grilled Haddock etc...
Cheers everybody !!
