I've been talked into a vacation. A canoe trip miles from the nearest cell tower in the Adirondacks.
I guess everyone should take a break, one way or another, it's just hard to arrange around all the crisis managment....

A nice vacation works wonders!

Just don't let on to anyone what your occupation is, or you know what will happen don't you?

"Oh, while you're here, could you take a quick look at this receptacle? It's been playing up for months!"

Enjoy your vacation, or as people over here might say, "Happy hols!"

Vacation, what's that?
I think it's where the Pope lives but I could be wrong.

I am going to the outer banks next week.(although I will still be conducting business from phone) I know I will pay for it when I get back to work, but what the heck.

have a great vacation....
Check the thread about T&M b4 u leave.

I sneak out "early" on Fridays & head to the shore. (Boating,swimming, relaxing, etc.)

But, as we probably all know, the pager, cell phone and laptop are a constant companion.

Then, of course around 4:30/5:00 on Friday the "emergency" calls start..... (another story)

Everybody should find some time to "take off"; life is isn't everything, (Although it helps a he.. of a lot)
