Thread Name: BS: Happy birthday Stilly River Sage
Subject: RE: BS: Happy birthday Stilly River Sage
My birthday is actually later in the week, but I can see the hand of keberoxu here, doing her search on names and landing on this. I put some remarks up this morning to explain why "Stilly" had gone away and "Acme" was in her place, so this is good timing. I changed back to Stilly River Sage today. It's nice to look back on remarks from Spaw and Don Firth, members of the Mudcat family who have been gone now for a while.

My daughter's birthday was on Thursday and now she's 30. She's also an accomplished librarian at a small local world-class museum. My son works for Amazon. They're debt free with good jobs, so I am a happy parent.

I went back to Stilly after I retired yesterday (Aug. 31) from the university. I am looking for other work because I'm not old enough to start drawing a full amount on Social Security and I am not ready to stay home all day. I know there are jobs in the world that are NORMAL so I'll look for one of those to do for a few more years. Most of my time at the university was great, but the last few years are the kind of thing one changes the names and turns into fiction. "It's all copy," as Nora Ephron said.
