Just wondered how many of you are taking time off this week.
[Linked Image] We're taking off only Christmas day. [Linked Image]
We've got some places that need to have us go in and do our thing while their employees are on vacation...S

I am going to finish on the eve of the 24th and then have the 25th off
food and beer, and fall asleep in the chair in front of the fire, wake up eat more drink a bit more,

Then on the 26th i shall go back to work,

We have a job to do on a production plant that we cant do during the operating time so they are paying good $$$ so i dont mind.

I dont have a wife (anymore) or any kids so i would be `at the relatives`, on that score i would rather be at work.

Worked at a jobsite in the Mountains today, very windy.

I'll catch up on paperwork & do an estimate at homeTuesday A.M. & take the rest of the day off.

Happy Holidays to all.


Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example.

We're not working 24th or 25th. I'm paying for Christmas Day, but not Christmas Eve. We had several customers with "emergency's", that wanted us to work on the 24th, but I don't consider a hairdryer tripping the breaker an emergency. We need the time off and if the customer can't wait(they did agree to wait), they pay someonelse's emergency fee.

I gotta go tonight (!) and hang a vanity light (mud hadn't dried yet) and install a garage GFCI (to replace the ratty "construction-use" one)...

Then, Lot 13 of Price Run Crossing is Punched Out (electrically)!!!

Hope to have tomorrow and Christmas off, but back to the grind on Thursday.

Merry Christmas!
