New days off

Starting this week, and for the foreseeable future, my days off will be Tuesdays and Wednesdays, instead of Mondays and Tuesdays. Wilbur, one of the other dairy department workers, wanted his Sundays and Mondays off again, so the manager gave them back to him. I'll be working the 5am-2pm shift in his place on those days.

Not much else new to report on this morning. I've got a second load of laundry in the dryer. Just finished electronically filing my state income tax. Only getting back $125. That might pay a bill.

Sunday was an interesting drive to work. Left the house around 4:30am... high winds and pouring rain. Had to drive extremely slow... rain was coming down so hard, could barely see 3 feet in front of my truck, even with wiper blades going full steam! Got to work, sat in the truck a few minutes to see if the rain would slack up just a little... it didn't, so I pulled out the umbrella, and headed toward the store. Wind was blowing the rain under the umbrella, so I figured I'd better pick up some speed. Tried to "dash" to the door, but the first step I made, that strange leg pain came back with a vengence... so running was out of the question. By the time I made it to the door, my "bottom half" was completely soaked! Mighty cold in the dairy cooler when you are wearing wet pants!

Wanted to listen to Bill Handel on KFI AM640 this morning, but it's been a "no go" situation. The ad when you open the "Listen Live" button plays fine, but when the main player loads after that, no audio whatsoever, even though the timer on the player is moving. Go figure.
