It's a beautiful day here in Georgia. It was a little warm and humid earlier, but right now it's wonderful. I may join Mary out on the deck in a minute, although we're getting close to sundown, so I probably won't be able to read out there for much longer. Still, it's nice out there.
We spent the day as we usually do, over lunch and a few cups of coffee. The manager at the local Houlihan's, who's a friend of mine, stopped by to say hello, and managed to knock a partially full glass of water on me. Other than being a little damp, I was fine. They've been tearing down most of the stores in that particular shopping center to put up a Target, and he said that so far, the crews have knocked out the water twice, the gas once, and today the phones were down. You have to wonder sometimes.
Had a phone meeting with my client yesterday, and the upshot is that most of the training materials are going to be rewritten. That's a good thing. More work for me, and it'll make my job in the classroom a who'lot easier. I won't have to compensate for the lack of detail that is the result of just throwing together a PowerPoint. A lot of the good detail about the product is locked up in the minds of the more senior staff, and we only hear it when they decide to take over our classes. This way, it'll all be written down. We're also taking a different approach to the training, one that actually requires a certain amount of instructional design. Gee, what a concept.
I'll get back to the funnies next week. I just haven't felt up to doing them the last couple of days.
