Well, if you think the pace of work here is the island laissez faires, think again!
I started my new assignment a week ago, and
- had to deal with the first part of my move (from Aguada - successfully accomplished, thank's heavens, though I had to spend four hours cleaning my old place myself - something I haven't done in a very long while, - because the person I hired to do it failed to report to work both on Monday and on Tuesday... and did not answer my calls),
- both Hanna and Ike, which "winged" us, dreanching us with rain, wreacking havoc with upturned trees, fallen power lines, no electricity and water for a few days,
- trying to coordinate the second part of my move - from Patillas - dealing with well meaning - I presume - but not quite up to the task help (and this is putting it mildly),
... when a bomb hit me: the organization, that I am working with now, decided to hold a BINGO on Sunday, the 14th, giving me - practically, considering all the other things, both professional and personal I have to do and deal with at the same time - less than a week to design a promotion and execute it!
....And I have never even SEEN a bingo being played in my entire life, much less participated in it, so I am clearly at a disadvantage here :-(((
I guess this is the thrill I was looking for to "adventure up" my so called golden years, when I chose my retirement "encore career " :-)))
But I hope all of you, living near Mayaguez will help me spread the word among your neighbors and friends. Here is a flyer for the general public you can (please, pretty please... it is for a very good cause) print and distribute to help AMPI ... and me:
