Launch Into The Future: Monday O'Malley

I type this post before meeting with my new supervisor.

On Friday, my 'old' job was eliminated by my company, and I was offered a new position.

Our offices remain closed, so no matter what, I'm working from home.

Onward and upward, no?

***

Paddy O'Malley has lovely whiskers, and he's not afraid to show them off!

  7. SO MANY whispers! Handsome as I know I am (heh heh) Nature did short me a bit in the whisper department. And since they are mostly balck-in-black, lots of times it looks like I an whiskerless!

    Good luck to the Human on the new position....glad she can still work from home!

    1. Oh no, Spitty...you have marvelous whiskers, especially those white ones! You MUST tell Manny or Chili Bruce how to grow them; sometimes, I have to turn one of them over to look at the size of the white belly patch to figure out which is which, and that's not very nice.
      A new job at my age...hahahaha!

  12. Was your position abolished due to covid-19? It's good that you were able to go right into a new one. Did you know of this beforehand?

    Ah, watermelon, and the flavourful, deep red-hued kind, not the tasteless pale pink pieces that are little better than rind...

    1. Yes, the company is forced to cut back, and my position morphed from one role into another, just so the books balance. Actually, I have a meeting today to have it explained it in more detail. What I truly appreciate is that they didn't want to let me go; they wanted to slot me in somewhere, and perhaps return me when things look up. That's a nice feeling!
      And The Hubby will NOT BUY WATERMELON for me; he's the food procurer, and he knows that I'll eat a whole damn watermelon in one sitting. They are sweet, and I need to watch my sugar intake, so he thinks he's rationing me. Silly man, I'll get watermelon somehow, whether he likes it or not! He's only looking after me, but I'm a kid at heart...I want what I want!

  15. The photo of Paddy O'Malley's whiskers from the underside is wonderful. I hope your "new" job works out well. Working from home is definitely a plus. We've been doing it since early April and it will continue until the end of the year.

  17. Mum just finished your puzzle. She liked all the color. The book mum read? The Room Where it Happened by John Bolton. Very detailed. Mum read about 125 pages a day to get it done in four days. That is a lot of reading, but it gives me lap time!

    1. I like puzzles that have some challenge to them! Tell you mom that I'm challenge myself to read a book series, but the library only has them as books, or on CD! I've got out my old CD player, and have dived in; what a funny old technology, when most all other books are available on audiobook.
