As some of you might know, I am part of a team that is starting a whole new company, right here in my town of Mulvane. And it’s a simpler way of life down here. And I love it.
Everything of any consequence is in walking distance. Everyone is friendly and straightforward to the point of WIlliam Inge. The bank president showed up at the front door to visit, in his natty bowtie, just to visit. It really is like a trip to Mayberry, RFD.
ANd that’s not all. I stopped om my way in this AM to pick up my normal “Caffeine Bong” full of Iced tea… and found new Pepsi Throwback and Mountain Dew Throwback.
THe Throwback sodas, if you didn’t know, are classic Pepsi sodas, made with pure cane sugar instead of High Fructose corn crack. And the taste is kind of astonishing. The Dew is wonderful, the Pepsi tastes more like I remember RC cola tasting… but that’s not a bad thing either.
And when checking out, what did I find but Clove, Beemans, and Blackjack Gum. Holy cow. I have time warped. So I picked up a flat of 20 packs of Clove… and it’s staring at me on my desk at work now.

And speaking of work, this could not be more different than the last place I worked with its black ceilings, dark grey walls, cubicles and soul sucking fluorescent lights. The walls are light colored, plenty of natural light from bay window in front of me which looks out on a rose bush and a nicely manicured lawn. Wow, what a difference in atmosphere and mood!
This is… nice. In every sense of the word. And you know, nice is good.
