First, Pollyanna's boyfriend's name is Jimmy Bean. Second, thank you for the jokes. They didn't help as much as the sunshine. I went for a walk yesterday afternoon, a walk in the sun, and even though the temperature is still below normal for this time of year, I enjoyed it. You know that song of John Denver's, may he rest in peace: "Sunshine almost always makes me happy/Sunshine almost always makes me high." I think that's how it goes. It's a healthy kind of high. Beats a martini. The humorous writer Russell Baker said you should never drink a martini more than 50 feet from your own bed. I think it was also he who said there is about as much happiness in a bottle of wine as anyone can bear. Something like that. Well, when the sun goes over the yardarm, what can you do?
I had to stop then because my mentee was calling. I've told you about the mentorship program I'm in. I'm finished now, I mean not finished, you know, but the session is over. The entire project is forcing me into total recall. More anon. I'm going back into the sunshine.
