A pretty darn good real life

Figured yesterday would be tough, given that I was returning to the real world from a dream.

But, nah. It's easy when you have a job that can sometimes take you to the heights. Literally.

Monday's assignment found me at The Bluffs, property in south Knoxville that backs up to the Tennessee River, providing a spectacular view of the city from a rarely-seen perspective. About the only jarring sight is the sewage plant on Neyland Drive.

With a little bit of luck, and a whole lot of hard work, Legacy Parks Foundation just might acquire this land. It would then forever be preserved. It is a no-brainer.

Sitting at lunch in the summer sun, watching jet skis fly down the river, I thought, "Boy, this sure beats sitting at a desk."

From there it was on to our west office for meetings. Didn't mind them because we talked of exciting things. Changes are comin', no doubt.

Left West Knox in time to meet a friend at Nacho's, a new Mexican restaurant on Emory Road. Great food. Subpar service. But, cheap beverages.

Got home in time to prop up my feet and watch the Sox crush the A's.

It isn't vacation, but it's a pretty darn good real life.
