Max’s Back Pocket Vol. XIV

The Max Out of Pocket crew had another productive week. Mrs. Max OOP officially closed out the school year remotely. It is officially summer break. I’m jealous, but math teachers deserve a break. I finished a huge project at the hospital that has been bogging me down for three weeks. Everything was submitted yesterday. My gym opened back up 6/1/2020 by appointment only. There are lots of new rules in place and they are doing...

Max’s Back Pocket Vol. XIII

Well, here we are in the 13th edition of Max’s Back Pocket. I think we are starting to catch up to the never-ending Rocky series. We had a nice long weekend and a pretty low key Memorial Day. I was able to extend my streak of biking to the hospital all four days again. There was a slight misfire on Thursday, though. I tried to jump a curb I had no business jumping and popped...

Max’s Back Pocket Vol. XII

Max’s Back Pocket Vol. XI

If you are anything like me, you might be a bit rusty on your Roman numerals. So for clarity, this is the 11th edition of Max’s Back Pocket. That comes out to eleven weeks and almost fully encapsulates the height of the pandemic. When data-mining archeologists dig up this blog in 1,000 years they will be glad I meticulously documented everything. In theory, we will have ten more pandemics by then. Things started ramping up...

Max’s Back Pocket Vol. X

I am starting to get into the routine of writing these weekly updates. Perhaps it is becoming a bit of a habit. Unfortunately, it probably won’t last as things get back to normal. I mentioned last week that my state started turning the faucet back on. From what I am seeing, we are treading lightly. It’s a relief. I haven’t seen any concerts pop up in the parks with giant mosh pits yet. I suppose...
