No place like home

It was a weekend to remember that I will hopefully soon forget. I pride myself on having my article ready for the weekend, but this time it was out of my hands. After 13 years, I was having surgery to repair a groin hernia that forced me into early retirement from my then, full-time shipping job at the former Red Wing company/Carriage House in Fredonia.

By Tuesday afternoon, they had enough of me and decided to kick me out. Like Dorothy says at the end of the Wizard of Oz, “There is no place like home.”
