Quick update

Well, it was another harrowing week in Memphis, and it started way WAY too early on Monday morning. This whole "daylight Savings" thing is a real pain in the ass when you've got to get up at 3:00 AM to try and make it to the job at a decent hour. Tack on the loss of the "Spring Forward" hour and I'm sure that you can imagine how bad the drive over truly sucked.

The week went by pretty quickly though, as I was pulled away to help out with delivering a wheelchair lift over in Mississippi (Twice, as the shipping company didn't deliver it on Monday, so we had to go get it at thier docks, and deliver it to the jobsite on Thursday.), assisting with a repair of an old freight elevator downtown (The building is a block over from where MLK was shot), and trying to finish up another job that Ed started. Lots and lots of running around got done, but Iw asn't able to advance my Modernization job very much at all. something that I did manage to do, was convince the owner that he really needed new cabs, so I'll actually have something stable to mount my new header and door operator's to. It's a nice addition to what is already a fairly lucrative job...and I get to be the hero.

The best news is, I don't have to get up so early this Monday, because I have to go to the shop and pick up my shop van. Yay! It's gotten a fender and door repaired (from an accident that the previous guy got into), a new paint job, all new company logos, and is having the Air Conditioning repaired and a new fuel pump installed this weekend. It may not be new, but it's being put into "top condition" before I recieve it. This is the first company that I've worked for that has seen fit to give me a vehicle, and as you may have noticed, I'm pretty stoked about it.

Meanwhile, as all of this stuff has been going on, I realized that my odometer turned over another milestone... This site turned two years old on March 31st, and I completely missed it. I guess it's a testament to how much of a streotypical "guy's guy" I really am. Not only do I forget Birthday's and anniversaries of friends and family, I even forget my own. In celebration, I'm going to put on some proper britches, and head on over to my favorite watering hole. I've got to harrass my favorite "beertender", and get a bite to eat. I think a steak is in order, and a tall glass of frosty malted adult libation. Then a haircut. Then do my taxes. Then the laundry. (Woo! Can't slow down this party animal.)
