Friday JohnKu – AKA – TGIF


Another Friday is upon us and also the last month of 2017. I guess the all-time cliché would be the question, “Where did the time go?” Seriously though. It seems like well, yesterday that it was the new year. Here we are, now on the cusp of 2018. I’m telling you this ski ride downhill has got to be slowed down.

Spent the week in final edits on The Contract which is a collaboration with Gwen Plano.

We will be entering the beta reader stage but more about that early next week.

Today’s JohnKu talks to the fact that time seems to fly. I hope you have a great weekend.

Time flies so they say,

When you’re having fun, they say. . .

Time flies fun or not.

    Yep, time seems to speed up with advanced age. 😀 Great JohnKu!

    1. Thanks, Gwen. I don’t mind the passing of time it is the acceleration factor that gets me. 😀

  2. Very true, John. I love Wile the top. Have a great weekend. 😀 — Suzanne

    1. He is one of my favorite cartoon characters. Not sure why. Maybe I’ve tried so many things to catch the roadrunner of life I feel we have a lot in common. Thanks, Suzanne. Have a great weekend as well.

  3. So true, John. Remember when we were kids and summertime seemed to last forever? Congrats to you and Gwen!

  4. Good question. This year seemed to go . . . Is it snowing on your blog?

    1. Yup. Every December one it starts. There is a setting in dashboard which you can go to. I leave mine set on an annual basis. 😀

      1. Didn’t realize it could be left on indefinitely. I’ll have to go looking for it again.

      2. It is there. You can’t see it unless you are on your site.

      3. Thanks. Looks like it’s running on mine too.

      4. Or it’s going to start up as soon as I send the last comment. That was weird.

  5. Agreed. This week and the year for that matter went rather quickly. If so many agree, is time really speeding up or are we all just too busy to see it fly by?

    1. I think someone messed with the time clock. 😀

  6. This is the first Friday I’ve had to work in many weeks. I want this day to speed up until about 3:00, then time can go as slow as it wants.

    1. Hopefully it will go like the wind. I guess your fiscal year ends without a lot of hassle. I remember ours was like the end of the world. Debits, credits, carryovers, sales goals, and shipping cut offs. Usually late work day on December 31. Have s super weekend.

      1. Ours is mostly automated. Unfortunately, I am responsible for those systems. Let’s hope nothing spooky got into the numbers. I think that’s an accounting term.

      2. Spooky is a accounting term for sure.

  7. The older I get, the faster time flies. Have a great weekend John.

    1. Thank you, Cindy. You as well. 🙂

  8. Indeed it does, John!

    1. I think you’ll like my post tomorrow if you stop by. It is about teaching.

  9. Ooooo! That’s a profound one, John! 😉 Plenty of fun in store for everyone for the next month! 😀

    Happy 1st of December everyone! My snow effect started already! 😛

  10. Oooooooooo – that’s a profound one, John! 😀 It’s that time of year and the snow’s falling in blogland, no matter what climate you’re enjoying just now! 😉

    Happ Dec 1st everyone!

  11. So here is an existential question: do retirees really have Fridays?

    1. And if they do, how do they know?

  12. Whoops – too much Xmas spirit already! 😛

  13. I’m with you, John – slow the passage of time down a bit.

    1. Yes. Molasses the rails.

      1. That’ll sweeten them for sure!

      2. And slow them down.

  14. Happy Friday, John!

  15. TIME: as defined by BRC dictionary: 1) Obnoxious 2) Unfair 3) Ubiquitous; 4) Omnipotent; 5) Omnipresent; 6) Fast-Moving in ‘Twilight’…

    Happy Holidays to you and yours (including pets!), good John! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    1. Thank you, Billy Ray. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you as well.

  16. Nothing like a Friday JohnKu for a Saturday morning. Yes, time flies like an arrow but fruit flies like a banana.

    1. Ha ha ha. Thanks, Frank.

  17. So true, John, and I love the meme!!

    1. Thank you, Debbie.

  18. I’m late again, John – always a Roadrunner and Coyote fan. Hope you had a great weekend!

    1. You are never late, Teri. Just delayed.
