Aaron wants to get the band back together

I teleconferenced with my former boss, Aaron, today. He's happy in Los Angeles because his girlfriend, whose career they moved to accommodate, just got a raise, and he's very proud of her. He's becoming more comfortable with his new job, too. It didn't feel like a good fit a few months ago because it wasn't what he expected, but he's settling in.

After I emailed him all that has happened to me at the agency where we both toiled, he was inspired to check his current company's "career" page and yes, there are openings for "content." He asked me if I'm interested. 

I don't know if I'm interested. I don't want to learn a new platform. I don't want another full-time job right now because I'm tired and looking forward to getting healthy.

But I am thrilled that someone who knows my work thinks that much of me. I respect Aaron a great deal.

In Anthony Rizzo news

Ok, so things don't look great for the Yankees. I'm still not giving up on another ring for Rizz, though. The Cubs had to come from behind in 2016 to win the World Series. He did it before, he can do it again.

But that's not what this post is about. Instead I want to concentrate on The Gold Glove. This award is given annually to the player who has exhibited "superior fielding." During his career, Anthony Rizzo has won this award 4 times with the Cubs in the National League. Now, after completing his first full season in the AL, he's a finalist again.

Not bad for an old man with a bad back.

It's been more than a year ...

... and I still miss Reynaldo.
