Sorry

No Hump Day Rule 5 post this morning.
Just work stuff getting in the way of blogging. (As it should be)

Here...a consolation prize.

No Plan Survives...

So Sunday I drive my ass out to Macon GA so I can be on site early Monday morning. My plan is to wrap things up there by lunch time and get my ass back home. I don't have anywhere else I have to be until I need to be in Decatur AL first thing Wednesday morning. Tuesday was going to be a slack off and catch up on paperwork day.

Noon on Monday I get the call, jump in my truck in Macon, and I'm in Decatur Monday night so I can be on site by 0830 Tuesday morning.

Tuesday Morning at 0700 I get the call, meeting is actually at 0800.
Oops, sorry man. Can you get here?

I made it there.

Now I'm home in B-ham. Tired out, cranky and I still have to be in Decatur at 0800 tomorrow for the original meeting.

I believe these are rubber bullets, can anyone confirm?

Still Hate Mondays

The Holiday Inn Express in Perry, Georgia is worth the $100.

Looks like they just refurbished the place from top to bottom, and they did a good job.

Kinda out in the boonies, but there's an Applebee's right across the street, and a half-dozen other decent places within a few minutes drive.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Getting an early start. If I can get my work done in time, I can be home tonight.

That's all that really matters, isn't it?

Sunday morning sleep-in #99

Post something on the Blog
Go to the bank
Clean out the truck
Grocery shopping
Mow the lawn
House chores
Catch up on paperwork
Make reservations for next week's travel

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Not bad for an intentionally slow day.
I can get my paperwork wrapped this morning, and clean out the truck just before I get back on the road for the week.
Problem is, I'm only sure about my travel plans through the first couple days. After that, it gets hazy.
I know I need to start the week in Macon, GA, and I'll wrap things up Friday in Mobile, AL.
So that's a start, anyway.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boy is my gun dirty.

That's not a euphemism.

Not dirty as in powder residue and lead fouling, but dirty as in lint, sweat, grime, etc..
I carried it around with me yesterday while running my errands. When I pulled it off and cleared it yesterday afternoon, I noticed the fuzzy bits of lint in the little gap that shows you if your chamber is loaded or not. So I ended up cleaning it (and the holster) last night.
Not much of a task, but I felt cheated just the same, having to clean my gun without getting any of the range time first.
Bummed.

I've Seen This Movie

The World Health Organization has authorized the use of an experimental new drug to treat the deadly virus, Ebola.

The drug, named ZMapp, (emphasis mine) has been used on several patients already, with mixed results.


Why does this sound to me like the opening line in a George Romero movie?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------







We're going to come up with a vaccine for Ebola and everyone is going to scramble and fight to be the first on their block to get it.

Too bad it causes you to turn into a zombie when you die...

Why does no one else see this coming?
