Max’s Back Pocket Vol. XVII

For the first time since launching this little project, I took a few weeks off from writing. It wasn’t planned, but it was a nice break. I even took back-to-back Fridays off work. Experimenting with a 32-hour workweek? Maybe. We have been busy hiking, swimming, exercising, and yes, even golfing. We also squeezed in a little trip to Cape Cod. But it’s time to get back to work here at Max Out of Pocket. I...

Max’s Back Pocket Vol. XVI

Summer kicked in a few days early here in New England. The heat made week five of biking to the hospital a little more challenging, but I still made it all five days.

It may eventually mean weekly editions of Max’s Back Pocket will also...

Max’s Back Pocket Vol. XIV

The Max Out of Pocket crew had another productive week. Mrs. Max OOP 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 the...

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...
