Re: Important

Well since we are all spending money, I am putting an offer in on this little gem Monday. The pictures do not do it justice. I figure I can get $700.00 per month out of it.
Needs a front window, the garage needs siding, and paint inside and out.

Re: Important

Worked 14.5 hours yesterday, have today off. Left the Jeep at the shop so it could dry out before I put the doors back on. I think its going to stay there, get the rest of the interior removed and start building a cage...

I've done a 16 hr shift each of the last three weekends. I was working for someone else the first 8, and my normal shift the second 8. This coming weekend I'm taking three days off with my normal two days off to do our annual cabin trip in Gatlinburg with 20+ people. I did not have to burn vacation time, those guys are working my shift...and we are so short handed I would've been denied the time off anyways.

So when the day gets long I remind myself how fun this up coming weekend will be.

And my vacation time rolls over and just keeps building up.

Sorry for the Altrocker mixed with TH explanation.
