Curveballs...

It seems that the counting of hours and minutes that had me smiling last week and on Monday has gone out the window. Between some breakdown time and their trying to make up some of the 12,000 vehicles they lost while we were on the street, they've thrown sanity out the window and are pushing us beyond 10 hour days. Monday we did 10.5; last night it was 11.

Last night the line started at 5:00pm and stopped at 4:30am; I got home at 5...

I put a tailight bulb in Dottie's car, made a soy protein shake, paid bills, ran through the shower and got in bed at 6:30; I tried to get up at 3 but set the clock back to 3:30...

Now it's time to eat, go out the door and do it again!

Saturday can't come soon enough!

No wonder you're counting the days...I will never understand the mentality that if you work your people like slaves that production will improve. It makes my stomach hurt.

hugs you Alan!

My goodness. I thought you'd be out of there by now. How much more of this servitude do you have to endure?
