So, Joseph closed to standing ovations. Very happy. Managed to work on three shows last year and not fall once. This year before the final show I hit an uneven piece of pavement and down I went. I must be the only 50-something with skinned knees. Good grief!

Now the show was in Livermore which is about 30 or 40 miles from Oakland. And the traffic on the freeway between the two cities is stupid slow. One night after the show and before battling the freeway we stopped at Jack in the Crack. We made a wrong turn and guess what we found?

I didn't know UNCLE had a credit union. There's a car too, but we didn't take a pic of that.

As a general rule, I'm a fairly optimistic person. I'm losing my optimism. Faculty meeting tonight. The big news? We may have to close the center, complete with the executive director in tears. It wasn't like most of us didn't already suspect. No one has hours, except me because I teach SAT prep and have some single subject students. So in about two or three weeks both me and M may well be unemployed. Just once I'd like something to go right. So M is frantically looking for a job and I really have no skills, except teaching. I'm too expensive for the Diocese to hire me as a high school teacher and the latest is that the public schools want master's degrees. 

I had hoped that we'd actually be open through the summer so I could take some classes to regain my lab skills. Yep, have to go back to school in order to get a job. If I can't teach I want to be in the science field. So off I go!

Just to cheer me up and remind myself that I produced and raised an incredibly kind and talented son I'm posting this vid here. It's just a clip of something my son and a friend did. My son did all the editing. We've got to get this kid in school. My son is the long haired 'hippy' you will see frolicking. His friend is the narrator.

I don't find many things side-splitting funny but this had me rolling on the floor.
