    Magnificent issues altogether, you just received a new reader. What may you suggest in regards to your put up that you simply made some days in the past? Any sure?

    our tech just left in a huff – leaving me here alone – which was the whole reason for me staying so there's no one left alone in the plant. Gotta fly! See y'all later! )))))))))))HUGS((((((((((

    HAHAHA you guys are too funny!!!

    I have NO planns for the weekend! (happy dance!) I've been wearing myself out with friendsies time the last couple of months, so a day to myself is going to be good. Cleaning up the yard and house, nothing strenuous. Especially after this 6 day way too many hours when it's all said and done week, I need some quiet time.

      One to close the day with. See you tomorrow.

      For reasons too involved and irrelevant to explain, a friend of mine had possession had a copy of a nasty program on a floppy. It would erase the entire hard drive of whatever computer it was loaded on. The floppy was labelled "INCREDIBLY DANGEROUS" and kept in a locked box at his store.

      One day, a man he had hired to work at the store found it and popped it into the company's computer and turned it on. Wouldn't you know it - the hard drive was erased.

      His explanation was, "I wanted to see what it would do."

        Well Kat could tell what the real deal is but I think it is an automated system that screens for not only word usage but speed and frequency of posts. So I must proceed at a more sedate pace.

        Actually have to take a dinner break. How late are you working? I'm on Pacific Daylight time. What is yours?

        I'll be back a bit later.

    Tomorrow, I'm spending my Friday off playing musical cars and other things. Oil changes & tohrz ("cuz tohrz ain't pretty") and pricing bulk items at Sam's with a friend.

    I've gotta make the best use of my time off as I can. This week I overheard my boss telling the second-shift lab tech that we're almost caught up on the testing and we can cut way back on the hours. Sheesh! Just as I was getting used to things, he jerks me out of my comfy zone – again. [8-} Oh well. I'll find out the straight dope on Monday.

      I will be working on my truck as well if my parts come in today, rebuilding my turbo on the diesel and fixing an annoying oil leak while I am there.

      Tires are no fun, so expensive anymore, was close to 900 last fall for truck tires, and were not talking kiddy over sized stuff, just stock truck tires on an F250.
