Meanwhile, Lynn and my friend Janece Rollet have been in cahoots. My birthday was August 3rd, and Janece wanted to surprise me with something special. That’s no easy task as Janece lives in Kentucky, about 3,000 miles distant. Through a series of clandestine Emails Janece, Lynn and Lynn’s husband Rich schemed together to bake me a wonderful chocolate birthday cake. It was truly a wonderful surprise. Thanks ever so much guys. It made me feel like a kid again and was truly a very special treat from some very special people.

Playing "Catch Up" and a Happy Reunion
Coming home after two weeks at my place of employment always results in a very hectic day. First, I NEVER get off duty on time. My counterpart (the security officer/medic who is working during my “R&R”) relies on a company provided shuttle bus to bring him to the remote site where we work from the airport. In all the time that we have been working on this particular schedule, that shuttle has NEVER arrived at our work site as scheduled. Not one single time.
