Not if you had to pay somebody....

I was just checking through the 'take off' pile and found a Tourance that looks to have at least 3k in it, just got 2k more out of an old Anakee2


(I really need to order a new set of tires and brakes and get the leaky radiator fixed and check the valves and.......)

I found somebody that will take my On Call for that weekend for 100 bucks, unless training or a family emergency comes up. I have mixed feelings about this.


The wife needs to approve this, and if the contract for the place I am at stays, I can make it.
After not being on call for years, this year I am on 4 times and 2 of the 3 Holidays in the first half of the year. I wonder how I pissed off my boss.

I will continue to buy lottery tickets, and if I win big before, I'll be there.


Cuz I will quit!

So you're saying you have a better chance of winning the lottery?

Hmmmmm ... this looks like it could be fun, even though I don't recognize most of the names.
It's never too late to make some new friends, eh?

So..........you've never heard my jokes then?

I guess I did win a lottery, of a sorts. He charges that for a normal week, and both mine are Holidays.
I think he is getting tired of taking them.

I've missed a lot of BYOBs in the last few years but it's looking good that I can make this one. I'm looking forward to it.
