I just heard that Anne B. Davis died today. That house had 2 adults, 6 kids, and only 3 bedrooms so where she slept is beyond me but regardless, she will be missed.
Suddenly feeling old, as it was not necessary to duckduckgo that name.
(For the record, I think she was sneaking out every night to shack up with Sam)
Some bitching, some praising and thanking my lucky stars...
My volume of work ebbs and flows, and right now it's definitely on a flow. Seems that everyone called in a span of one week, wanting on-site service, when before I was sitting at home the previous three weeks. Of course, the weather got really nice so that explains the timing... On the upside, I've managed to schedule the visits in geographical groups that will help keep the driving down a bit. Still looking at 1,500 - 2,500 miles over the next two weeks, though.
Anyway, was busy last week and returned home around 8pm. Had a backlog of stuff to do before the next trip (I leave in an hour), including building from scratch some parts for a fairly big order. Spent all day Saturday and a few hours Sunday working on parts, and then the rest of Sunday catching up on paperwork, emails, invoicing, packing for the next trip, etc. being our 23rd anniversary, my wife was hoping to go to the air show Saturday and then hit a nice place for dinner. Instead, she was helping me work on parts, without complaint, without being asked. Not exactly the way to celebrate all that time together, though - as odd as it sounds - we actually had a decent time working on that stuff together.
Gotta come up with something nice for her. Maybe an overnight trip somewhere. Would love to go down to Road America and catch one of the vintage racing events. Going to miss the classic motorcycle event this weekend, but I'd really like to take her to the big historic car event in mid-July. Been meaning to do that since we moved up here ten years ago, but something always gets in the way.
