Windows, Walking and Work

It has been quite a week.  There has been some movement at the senior leadership level at my work which made me feel a bit vulnerable.  We had a meeting with the company owner last Monday and he asked me if work stress was causing my beard to turn white.  So I told him that recent departures of the company president and two VPs made me feel vulnerable.  He looked me in the eye and said he would be very mad if he heard I had dusted off my resume.  He even made the time to send me a personal email the next day with words of encouragement and future engagement.  So that settles that...!

Got the free update to Windows 10.  Installed without a hitch but I had to tweak a few things.  Overall it was pretty good although Microsoft continues the trend of taking away our ability to control some things (updates are now forced upon us and installed automatically, etc.).  I suppose it is progress.  Certainly can't fight it.

Meanwhile, it has been just over 3 weeks since Mocha's surgery.  Her appetite is just starting to come back.  We take short walks in the evening now.  Still no stairs and I have to keep her calm in case she gets a notion to run.  She can't do that till she hits the 8 week mark.  But she is coming along.  Here is a video:
