Yes I can see the light at the end of the tunnel !!!!!!
   I got the pipe strain on the last pump skid sold off to the inspector last night !! sold 2 alignments and started on the last one and turned it over to the Day Supervisor !!!!  now Im just waiting for Chevron to release me so I can go home !!!
I have been in this Refinery since February!!  Started helping the compressor crew and then got my crew in here for the Millwright work !!!!  Damaged a $95K coupling trying doing an alignment on a centrifugal compressor !
Thought that would have at least got us ran out of here ...but to no avail !!!!  So I started checking the time with my phone !!! nope its to close to the end of this turn around for them to run ya off !!!!

So now im looking forward to seeing my new granddaughter again , and putting some lead down range !!!
AND I think Im going to sleep for about 2 days !! with doing the time and having problems with my company computer Im behind on sleep !!!  so maybe I will get some photos of me shooting some of my Enfields when I get home !!! I will post them for Y'all !!!
So wish me luck and keep yer fingers crossed the let us go tonight when I go back in to work !!!

Wlhite Rhino be safe. When you get tired issues happen.

Get some good sleep, enjoy your famaly, Paw Paw, and go out and kill something you can eat.

Boy - do I know that devil well. When I worked at Ford in Oakville, it was 10 hr shifts.(So your there 11). But you had a drive in that was a nightmare (Toronto traffic), so it would take an hour or more to get there (Its only 80 kms away!) Do your shift, & try to drive home. In the van-pool, the driver was just as tired as everyone else, but everyone else would doze off.
The number of times we ran off the hi-way..man - howsit we're still alive?

Well I didnt get let loose yet , But I let loose 2 from the crew this morning ... one had drill for the reserves and the other I wanted off my crew due to his actions !!!!  I dont think I have any more stuff left to put him on to keep my other guys from strangling him !!!!  That guy was the most obnoxious person I have ever had work for me ever !!! When I talked to him about what he was doing that was irritating the others on my crew and the Recip supervisors crew , he just laughed and said "thats me !"
So after my email to my manager last night , that guy will not be back on any of my future jobs !!  or even any that my manager sets up !!!

I have a cow, a few goats, chickens, and a mule that is a boarder for cash.

Think about getting some turkeys but they are a lot of work.

I used to have a steer named hamburger but you all know what happened.

Reminds me of the two pigs my dad and stepmom had once. One was named Sausage, the other was named Bacon. Man, they were tasty!
