Thank you, Jeff Bezos

Another little box landed on my doorstep today, this time with 16 oz of currants plus a pop up laundry basket I was sure I needed to bring some order to my laundry room.  Lord knows how many things have come to me via Amazon, well I guess you could go to my “orders” on my Amazon page and see that precisely.  I don’t go out and shop anymore, probably much to the chagrin of my local merchants. I was never much for shopping as a recreational activity, but now and then you needed something and had to go out for it.  No fighting for parking places with Jeff.  I do recall almost Christmas  ventures hoping something would strike me as right for a loved one, but no more.  Jeff Bezos in his genius has freed us of all that. Whatever you want, there it is.  Wow.  How can you not bequeath the man his multibillions?  Too bad he’s such an ultra liberal but others of his caste have been worse.  At least he’s ginned up a good sex scandal, complete with transmission of genitalia.  He’ll not have a job in the Biden cabinet.  Which is good, so he can keep on his mission of transforming the world’s retail market.  Amazon warehouses will be quietly plunked down in obscure parts of the world all over.  Press on, Jeff.  I’ll keep clicking.

I retired from the Rheumatology division of Michigan Medicine end of June '19 after 36 years there. Upon hitting Ann Arbor for the second time (I went to school here) it took me almost 8 months to meet Kathy, 17 months to buy her a house (on Harbal, where we still live), and 37 months to marry her. Kids never came, but we've been blessed with a crowd of colleagues, friends, neighbors and family that continues to grow. Lots of them are going to show up in this log eventually. Stay tuned.
