15 more minutes and I am gone. You guys talking about being bored, go shoot some paper. You are gun folks with time on your hands.......... I am going to terrorize some paper this weekend, dent some steel, and destroy some target frames. I hope to be ass deep in brass before Monday.
Shredding paper is a wonderful suggestion! I hope to get some of that done over the weekend if the weather holds up. Have a great Thanksgiving.

I did work today. I am working tomorrow. I hope to feed about 400 to 500 people in my restaurant. The hotel is super slow. But the restaurant more than makes up for it.


Romans 1:16 I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.

If you call getting the house ready for company that's coming, while listening to music, work then yes .

spent the day trying to resolve a product production timing issue. 4 separate companies, parts air freighting all over the world, coordinated timing on the parts... Boss came by at 1:30 and said go home, and I couldn't, I had a 2:30 teleconference that was still going on at 3:30 when I threw in the towel.

well i worked my normal 12 hour day today. the last 4 weeks its been 12 hours mon tues and wed. tomorrow and friday its 8 hr days. lets just say my wife was not pleased with me recently . hehe

I have been a silent witness
to all of America's finest hours.
But my finest hour comes
when I am torn into strips and used as bandages
for my wounded comrades on the battlefield,
When I fly at half-mast to honor my soldiers,
Or when I lie in the trembling arms
of a grieving mother
at the graveside of her fallen son.

I'm off tonight (Wednesday night into Thursday morning) but I have to be to work for my 10.5 hours Thursday at 2100. I will also be working New Years Eve into New Years Day this year. We take turns working the holidays. Next year I'll work the holidays I have off this year.

I didnt read this until 6am on Thurday. At work!. I work in a prison, so its non-stop 24-7 365 days of shift work. I work from midnight to 8, so I at least get to go home and have Thanksgiving lunch-dinner and watch some football. Go Lions by the way. Out of 150 or so officers, only 10-15 are able to take vacation for a week at any givin time. And its usually those within the top 20 in senority. I think im number 99, so I have a ways to go to being able to get Thanksgiving or Christmas off without it actually being my weekend days off.

Someones gotta stay and watch these thugs at all times of the day.

p.s. Some people do call in sick for holidays at the prison. Doing this can mean someone being forced to stay and work another shift whether they want to or not. If your kid has to go to the hospital, thats one thing. But if you bang in (calling in sick) because you have the sniffles wink wink and I have to be force to work your shift, im slashing your tires when I have a chance. Be respectful of others that want to go and see their kids open gifts and see other family. They call in sick because they want to see their family for longer on holidays, but that meets somebody does not get to see their families at all. Sorry for ranting on this part, it pisses me off on how selfish people can be. That and because Ive been mandated on holidays a couple times in the past.
