    Thanks, John! For some reason, I thought it was at the end of November. :eek:oooh:
    I'd rep you, but I'm outta pixie dust.

    Hope you are feeling better.

    Take care.

    Yippee! My favorite time of the year. WINTER (coming soon) Colder than a welldiggers A$$. Go to work in the dark....come home in the dark.:sad2:

    Hope to retire someday like Dayton and a few other folks. I'd like to have a few days to set on my porch sipping lemonade and doing what I WANT to do everyday.

    Every year there are a bunch of call offs on the 11 to 7 shift because the officers don`t want to work the extra hour and not get paid for it. :smile2::smile2:

    Dan, that's a shame, where I worked paid a hour overtime and full 8 hours when the clock went forward.
