The way the world was

Someone once told me "There is more to life than just having fun." I sure as hell hope not!

I was gainfully employed at a local university, and when the projects I worked on ran out of money, they told me 'goodbye'. It was ski season, and so I packed up my marbles and went home. I am currently sponging off the spouse, a situation which suits both of us quite well, as he readily admits that he is high maintenance. *grin.

So, now life is ABSOLUTELY about having fun.
