Boy did the weekend fly by, what happened to Sunday, it went by so fast I forgot to post a blog, Oh well we’ll just catch up here. Had the Grands from Friday morning until Sunday evening right after supper last night Nicole and Chris’s Dad picked them up for a sleepover at one of Chris’s friends houses. Adam elected to stay with Grandpa since he didn’t know anybody and his Mom was going to pick him up this morning. They all had a great weekend and I told them we would do it again soon, I said find a place you want to see and we will go.
We didn’t go eagle watching the Sunday paper said they are late getting down here to the Lock & Dams where they winter and fish so we will wait a couple of weeks, must be the warmer start to the winter we had..
Donna had to go in to the truck company,I guess they don’t celebrate MLK Day like the schools and such.When I was on the PD they gave you 12 holidays in pay in the form of a check the first week of December, that way you got Holiday pay whether you worked it on the schedule or not, plus it gave you Christmas shopping money. So to me Holidays were just another work day.Usually all the major holidays were busy on the roads so you pretty much were scheduled to work anyway. When I was a Sergeant and my boys were grown I would put myself on the schedule in place of one of the young guys who had kids home,so they would have Christmas Day off with their families.
Now when your retired, everyday is a holiday.
Hope everyone is having a good week. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna…
