Besides Santy Claus & Me ?
Anyone else have to work ?
naw disablity retired.
But when I did work I used to volunteer to take call duty on Thanksgiveing and Christmas since I am single and not much family to eat with and such.
That allowed the workers that had familys to spend time with them.
And someone would allways cover for me on the july 4th holiday so I could go away a while.Worked out fine that way.
Retired 3/19/13, so no work for me :-)Tho Christmas Eve is also our wedding anniversary so I'll need to "work" at being extra nice :-)
I'm not! Tomorrow is my last day until 2014! WOOT WOOT!!
Ok honestly this is 95% because my place of work will be closed down and I couldn't work even if I wanted to . . . still kind of excited about the baker's dozen I'm about to get.
I've worked on Thanksgiving and Christmas before and ugh, man. It's pretty terrible. Even if you aren't really into Christmas or you don't have any plans to be with anybody, working on Christmas and knowing that the vast majority of folks are NOT working - it's enough to make you want to punch somebody in their jolly little jingle bells.
Retired Navy, Retirement didn't take had to find another source of income so yes I will be working in Central Control... this office is always manned 24/7/365 or 6 nothing new I was always working on Christmas or worse yet 1/2 a world away
AO1 U.S.Navy (RET) sorta
When I was at Little Rock AFB, Jewish officers - even some whose jobs didn't require them to be on the roster at all - would take Officer of the Day duty on Christmas and Easter so that Christian officers could be with their families.
Not since 2001.
Not me. Retired 'n loving it. Although I do cook Christmas dinner as well as Thanksgiving.
Jim: When you work for yourself, you work everyday. Count me in.
I'll probrably be pushing snow off of lots and salting
Not related to working but son is home today from Army training. He joined reserves while still in high school and went off to boot camp after graduation (I am still not too fond of this whole deal but father is a retired Lt. Colonel so it just skipped me). He was 2 weeks from the end of boot and stress fractured his leg so got sent home then went back....way back and had to repeat half of boot again. He is now at advanced school (signal corps but talking about being a chaplin). After graduation he will begin 4 years of college on ROTC. So---this weekend is a Thanksgiving dinner that he missed in Nov!
I'm going to be working my way down from Monterey to Southern California on Christmas day. No family any more, and retired to boot, so I like to get away for Christmas.
John, you take care and don't over do it! I want to seem you at Chikashay.
I won't be working unless one of my customers has a server go down.
I'll be working on Christmas day!
Working up an appetite for a lobster and lasagna dinner with a bit of lemoncello to wash things down.
The "Honey Do" ensures I have work to do every day!
John, the forecast for Fulton for Christmas day is 41 degrees and 10% chance of rain. I don't think you're going to be doing a lot of snow pushing...
John Danuser - We're glad you're feeling well enough to even "think" that way! Just take it easy and don't "over-do it"!
I am. Premature babies never take a day off. I will still revel in the awesomeness of the day.
Got the 4 AM to 10 AM simulator shift on Christmas Eve training pilots at United Airlines. Early shift should get the pilots home for Christmas.
Merry Christmas all.
As usual this is the busiest end of the year for music. Well I almost got New Years Eve off but that changed last week. Took both Model Ts out yesterday because I won't be able to get near them for the next 3 weeks. I will be suffering from separation anxiety by then! Have a safe Christmas everyone. Chris.
No fair posting those pictures Fred....
they are making me hungry, and there is still a week to go!
Dave -- Lobster and Lasagna on Christmas day are a tradition at our house.
Lobster was not easy to do when we lived in Southern KY!
Bill - If your training 777 pilots I'll bet I've flown with a few of them.
I did over 144,000 miles on United this year!
I train on the Boeing 757 and 767 Ground School and Simulators. Maybe moving to the Boeing 787 this coming year.
Well, I'm still unemployed, so I don't count, but Linda (SWMBO)is working day shift at the hospital; leaves home at 6 am, gets back around 3:30 & we have been invited to a friend's for dinner, Think I'll bake a Pumpkin pie to take there.
Y'all have a safe & Merry Christmas!
I'll be working on my brother-n-law to get him pissed off! Its a holiday thing
I'm going to be working to fight the temptation to overeat. Christmas eve, going to a Mexican dinner with fajitas and all the trimmings. Christmas Day, going to a lunch with traditional turkey and all the trimmings. Day after Christmas, going to brother-in-laws. Don't know what's on the menu, but he's a master chef and I've never been disappointed.
Looks like I will be T Skiing on Christmas Day
Safe & Happy Wishes To All !
Mixing a conservative and liberal at family gatherings can be interesting, especially if one bases his position on facts and the other one uses feelings
There is a good chance that I have most been on a plane piloted by someone you have trained. I end up on 757 767 s between Boston and Chicago, San Francisco, - LA often. I am looking forward to trying the LA - Shanghai flight on the 787 after the battery problem has gone thru the second fix.
We're gonna get 3" of rain this weekend, so we may be cleaning up the basement on Christmas!
