I'm quite ready to wrap this one up, and get on with the weekend.

I've been asked via e-mail why I don't blog about politics very often, lately. Frankly, I'm sick of the whole mess. It feels like a waste of time to keep beating my head against a wall ... and just like doing that, it feels better when you stop.
I'm spending far less time trying to write, and more time staring out the windows, these days. Thinking about travel, about just getting away for awhile.
We'll be hitting the road in August, with one long driving trip/four-day weekend already planned. We'd like to visit Fairbanks again, and maybe take the Coastal Classic train to Seward, too. Just because.
Work plays an ever-decreasing role in my life as time off assumes a more important part. I'm okay with that. It probably doesn't help that many of my friends at work have either just retired, or are about to. Barring a sudden windfall (hey, it can happen) I won't be retiring any time soon.
But longer vacations are definitely in the mix.

And oh, yes: we saw Jurassic World last night. Not bad at all!
The production admittedly trod some familiar territory, but it's well done. We enjoyed it, and isn't that what "entertainment" is all about?
You'll probably like it, too.
