Into August 2014

I was to have co-hosted Writer's Block on Naturally Autistic ANCA Radio last Saturday (2 August), but the show was cancelled for this month, due to more pressing matters that the host had to attend to that week. I will be unable to co-host next month, due to the IPMS/Gateway show that day.

Work has been going well. Plenty busy most mornings, and towards the end of the days, but midday lulls allowed my colleagues and I to rest a bit and get caught up on housekeeping chores. We welcomed a new management trainee (MT) this past Monday, and said goodbye to another one on Tuesday. (The latter MT is transferring to the airport location.)

Before going into work last Tuesday (5 August), I cast my ballot in the primary election. Voter turnout was light--I was the seventh voter in that polling place--and it did not take me long to vote. I was quite happy with most of the results, although some of the state ballot issues that I opposed did pass.

After work on Tuesday, I ran the IPMS/St. Louis meeting at Mark Twain Hobby Center in St. Charles. We had a nice turnout of seven people--three of them, there for the first time, were the son, grandson, and son-in-law of one of our members. It was a brief meeting and several of us then browsed in the shop for a bit before going home.

A rather quiet off day today. It was raining most of the day and into tonight, so I stayed home to catch up on some business. That included getting the listing for the IPMS/Gateway Show on 6 Sept. posted onto a couple of online events calendars. Hopefully that will help get a few more people to our show, along with other efforts, such as posting show flyers in area hobby shops.
