I just found out that I work in one of the non-essential Federal offices covered under President Bush's memo for the National Day of Mourning in honor of President Reagan. That means I get Friday off of work. To be honest, I feel rather guilty about enjoying a vacation day a week after a President died. I feel like I should find something meaningful to do Friday to show my respect instead of just hanging around the house and knitting. I'll have to come up with something fitting.

I've been ordered to attend services at the chapel with 18 pews.

You could always knit something patriotic.

Hell, you could just do whatever makes you happy.

Don't you think Reagan would have approved of that?

I agree with Sigivald -- President Reagan would have wanted you to enjoy your free time and appreciate your liberty to do as you please.

Write your husband a letter... perhaps include a postcard or two if he has a buddy who doesn't get much mail.

I hope you used your time constructively . . . maybe you could have read a book on statistics.

Do you know anyone with hostages? You could trade arms for the hostages. Or perhaps you could lay a wreath on the grave of a dead Nazi.
