"How beautiful it is to do nothing, and to rest afterward."
(The right to looseness has been officially given)
"Everyone carries a part of society on his shoulders," wrote Ludwig von Mises, "no one is relieved of his share of responsibility by others. And no one can find a safe way for himself if society is sweeping towards destruction. Therefore everyone, in his own interest, must thrust himself vigorously into the intellectual battle."
Apparently, the crossword puzzle that disappeared from the blog, came back.

A Day Off
I really don't have anything for today. Let's just say I am taking the day off. Since I am retired, you might say I have every day off but that's not true. I try to do something every day. Some days less than others, of course. Today, my goal was to get out of bed. I have accomplished that. I figured that's good enough. After all, I am on a fixed income so doing nothing is like getting extra pay for that day. In fact, the less I do, the more I get, relatively speaking.
I will probably have to mow the lawn tomorrow. Which means I will have to get gas for the mower. I saved probably $4 by putting this off for a month. That's a side benefit of procrastination. And procrastination is a great method of practicing laziness. I'll try to convince my wife that I could save even more by putting that chore off for another week. After all, the grass is not above my ankles yet.
