The Scoop

We were layed off from Point Beach Nuclear Plant last week. The outage there is almost done and we were there less time than antisipated. That’s ok we got 60+ days of outage which translates to 12 hour shifts, 6 days a week. I even worked a couple of my scheduled days off (monday) in an attempt to beat Aprils all time big check. Didn’t happen but I made a few extra bucks anyway.

So the past week we headed down to Boscobel w/ a van load of stuff for storage. We visited the kids and grandkids. We stayed at Dylan’s and hatched a plan to take him to Florida w/ us. He was layed off recently from his milking/farming job and recently became unattatched to current girl freind. He as always wanted to travel so the timing is perfect While reluctent to quit his shitty cheese job (remember Fredy got Fingered?) he couldn’t resist our promises of warm temps and sandy girls. He has been working 3rd shift at Meister Cheese and I am proud of his desire to carry on the family cheese making tradition but times have changed and it’s just not the same anyway.

So we are back up north by Tish Mills Wi to pack up the apartment. We will head back to Boscobel in a few days, kiss the grandkids and be off to Florida around the 18-20th I believe. We had hoped to move the boat and live on it in Key Largo but it is logistically neer impossibly at this time.

Will add more later as once again I am typing in the Twilight Zone. On this Xoom I can only see and edit the first 120 words. After that I can no longer see or edit this.

Carpe Langousta!!!!



Screwed up again. AGAIN?!?!

Well we certainly were not @ Shipwreck brewery last weekend. We were both working 12 hour shifts at Point Beach Nuclear Plant. The last post is a draft that I started last winter after we visited Door County. I pre-published it intending to get it finished and edited before it went live. I just picked a date in the future and meant to get back to it. Yeah that didn’t happen and it got published half-assed. Not going to fix it now, just did 12 hours and 0300 comes too soon signaling another 12 ahead. 72 hour weeks, Mondays off.
