Default 5 days off

2 days scheduled, and 3 of vacation time.

And the honey do list just grows and grows. :(

Wife informs me this morning that she'* taking my truck to work and that the car needs washing.
Plane needs washing and waxing too. Badly!
Grass needs cutting, again. Just remembered that the gas powered trimmer broke last time I used it. :(
Firewood needs hauling (oops, no truck)

Weekend is a write off............ 40th grad reunion, we get to hang out with a bunch of grey haired OLD people. Last one I went to I was shocked at how the girls I lusted after in high school looked. And the list of those who were no longer with us keeps growing.

I've been off work since January 11th and still have items on the honey dew list.
I'm fair weather now, gotta feel it before I can do it.

My 25th class reunion is this summer, curious but not going to drop what I'm doing to go.

Being a pilot I dont have to tell you about the effects of time and gravity

It'* an all day job. I love it when I"m finished and I can throw a rag anywhere on it and the rag just slides off. That'* when I know I'm done.

It sometimes takes longer, depends on how much change I have in my pockets.

There'* a beer machine 100 ft away.

I'm so glad I got out of the forest industry when I did. Can't go wrong hauling fuel, everyone just keeps buying it no matter how expensive it is. Although those companies that haul fuel into the bush for the forest industry are going down the drain.

I'm betting that you have moved a wee bit further from your old stomping grounds than I have.

Some of us age better than others. Lack of stress helps. Lack of kids helps even more.
