    Default yesterday was a good day..

    I caught 24 hours of OT! (the 10 hour day and 14 hour night tour)

    Engine 1 had only three runs for the entire 24 tour!

    My new leather lid was delivered!

    Sorry guys, I saw an open door and I just had to take the opportunity to throw a zinger in there. I do love to stir the pot ya know. I am glad I had the opportunity to give you a laugh.


    As for the crud in the computer devices, look at it as a an excuse to get a nice new LCD monitor or maybe even a new computer. Take that money you might spend on a Phenix chock block and put it towards a new toy adn support our economy.

    Actually I looked at the Phenix a few years ago and it is a great helmet, so long as it comes from the hide of cow that so gallantly gave its life for my personal protection.

    Sorry Bou. Just personal opinions and likes.

    Yeah, I realized it later on this afternoon, but I figured that I still made guys blow coffee all over the computer so what the heck.

    You can still use it for a chock block though. It will add a sense of sophistication to an otherwise mundane job of just stopping a truck, ya know what I mean?

    Why use a leather when "tactical tupperware" filled with cement will do the same job?

    Good point cap. I think Bou might differ with that take on it but that's alright.

    Cap - Unless you are a believer in the "saved the best for last" theory your criteria for a good day is slightly out of order... the receipt of the new leather lid should have been right at the top of the list
