    Make it as far as you can, and have the wife come get you. Take her out for a mini 34 hr. Vacation.

    Man, I’m still upside down. Always been a night owl. It started at a young age. Usually included some heavy partying. Often went to work without sleep. I usually Truck between 4-5pm and 3 am. At home, I can’t sleep till 7 or 8 am. Usually get up after 3 pm. Not much gets done around here on that schedule. Wife's the same way. She’s outside right now, watering flowers. Lol. Trying to convince me to stay up. I’m arguing to get 4 hrs sleep and start early. Somethings got to give. I used to stay up all night at least twice a week, up into my 30s . Even when working 60 hrs in 5 days. I guess I finally burned out. I was warned for years about that happening. My energy level has fallen off, since hitting 50. It’s hard to deal with. I miss being full of energy, always busy. But also enjoy being able to relax and take my time. It’s a dilemma alright. Double edged sword. Much calmer these days. Maybe a little too calm, Lol. You young guys working your ###’s off be forewarned. Do what’s important now, so you can chill out later. It becomes very important as time gets shorter. Mr. Obvious strikes again!! Lol. Be safe. I’m going to try to sleep. This woman’s going to put me in an early grave, if I let her. Lol. Not really. She always says I blame her for everything. I say that’s right, everything’s your fault. Glad we agree, Lol. Nah, She’s Great, or else She wouldn’t be around. My Partner in Crime for sure. Just try to enjoy life, and not work yourself into an early grave. All the money in the world means nothing in the end. Only good memories do,

    Wait till you hit 60. Then you really wonder what happened to the motivation we had

    Once again The J in Emporia has nothing. A place to use the can and wash the windshield.

    The OM made sandwiches.

    Female vocalist-

    No one gave any love for Blondie? Cher? Patty Smyth? Janet Gardner? Shania Twain?

    All of you have your cat woman / sexy witch privileges suspended.

    Blue Angels are in Lake Charles today. I’d like to see them again. It’s been 36 yrs. Last time was in Belle Chase La. They trained near my Job, on the Harvey Canal. Current Location of Boomtown Casino. They’d fly below the trees right above the water. One flew over Me and my co worker, while we were standing on a flatbed, almost blew us off the deck. Lol. It was pretty cool. Later my wife and I went to the air show with my Aunt and Uncle, a Vietnam Vet. He was better than a tour guide. Lol. We had a blast. My Uncles quite a Character, still kicking staying busy.
