  • Get Back to Work

    Let’s talk about work and the pandemic a bit more. Friday, word came down from on high that the guaranteed hours are going away. This was not unexpected. Most everything is reopening and everyone seems to want to get back to business as usual and the normal routines of life. Sure, the pandemic isn’t over, […]

  • Am I Doing This Right?

    I want to vent a bit. I have a good job. My employer has done right by us, in my opinion, during this whole pandemic. They couldn’t lay us off, because that would most likely void their contracts with the clients who want maintenance services to be available when they need them. When something breaks, […]

  • Cooling Things Down

    I broke down and turned on the air conditioning yesterday. Looking at the weather page for yesterday says that we hit 84 degrees, but I seem to remember the outdoor reading being higher than that on the thermostat. And when the thermostat in the house hit 89, well, that was too much. I broke down […]

  • Rainy Sunday Musings

    So, you try to plug in a USB plug and it doesn’t fit. You flip it over and still no luck. You flip it back to the original side and now it fits. Argh! I feel your pain. We all feel your pain. How many thousands of times has that happened? Here’s a helpful tip […]

  • One of Those Days

    It is the middle of April, right? What is the deal with this snow? If I were going anywhere this morning I would have needed my brush. Ridiculous. I don’t appreciate this. Don’t they know I just cut all my hair off? I want my 60 degree days back. Wednesday has snuck up on me. […]

  • Work Update

    Logged in to work this morning to check on things and found an email from somewhere up the chain. Apparently, we’re calling this scenario a reduced work schedule. Which is a pretty accurate, if you ask me. What with my workload having been reduced to nothing. The good news, no layoff. The bad news, half […]

  • Out of Work

    Well, it was bound to happen. I may be considered an essential worker, but most all of my customers have instructed that I should only respond to emergency work orders, and there haven’t been any of those in a while. Today, two things happened. The first, was that I finished up the last three outstanding […]

  • Covid-19

    The pandemic finally hit home for me and my family. In her last semester of college, face-to-face classes at GRCC have been canceled into April, the campus labs have been closed, and as a result, Lady Ronn, no longer has a job. Which I’m sure will in a small way impact our financial situation, the […]

  • The MLKjr Holiday

    “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. I’m sitting at home today because of the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. Although, I don’t remember my boss actually mentioning that it was a holiday for us this year. But the banks are closed, and […]

  • Truckcast #122: Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes

    Today, I’ve pieced together a few shorter pieces to create a new and more entertaining Truckcast for you today. These pieces were all recorded in a two day span, but I couldn’t manage to record a single long file, because it’s just hard to be entertaining for any stretch of time. Also, some of the […]
