Day 1859: That was then, this is now

January was then,  February is now.

That was February 1st when I took those photos, this is now February 2nd, Groundhog Day, and my 65th birthday.

For those of us who are still recovering from the past, this is now the time to tell ourselves: “That was then, this is now.”  The then is still with us, but the now offers the gifts of opportunity, healing, and hope.

That was then when I watched and listened to The Monkees This is now “That Was Then, This is Now.”

 

That was my blog post for the day.  This is now my gratitude for all who have helped me get through the then and the now, including the Monkees, The New Yorker, Roz Chast,  and YOU.

Day 1478: Bosses, Babies, and Monsters

Yesterday, I went to see the monster hit  Hidden Figureswhich included bosses, babies, monsters, and so much more. Whether you’re a boss, a baby, or anybody else, I recommend you go see it. Also, boss other people into seeing it, because it’s such a monstrously boss movie.

While I was at the movie theater, I saw this sign with monsters …

and I saw coming attractions for Boss Baby.

That made me think about how awful it is when I’ve got a boss who acts like a baby or a monster.

Last week, I remarked to a friend at work that the new boss of the U.S. was acting like a baby.  She replied, “That’s unfair to babies.”

I don’t want to be bossy or to act like a baby or a monster, but could you please look at my other photos from yesterday and see if there are any bosses, babies, or monsters in them?  And then, could you PLEASE leave a comment for the boss of this blog?

My boss at work won’t like it if I’m monstrously late today, so I need to end this blog post NOW.

But not before I send my best to you, this morning

 

Thanks to all who helped me create today’s post and to you — of course! — for being here, now.
