Ten years ago…11 September 2007…

I know it’s a day early but I have to work tonight starting at midnight.

I turned 53 on my ballast train on the BNSF KO Subdivision in North Dakota. I had tied up the previous night in Jamestown ND. It was a spot dump and went very well and I was done before noon….

I know it was a significant day in the history of Our Republic…..but I was kind of busy.

Tomorrow is the completion of another trip around the Sun……..

After the events 8 years ago with my left kidney, I have been more or less objective concerning the attacks that September day 16 years ago…. I’m still here. If symptoms had manifested, I would have had to get my affairs in order.

To those who may get upset over my viewpoints please remember this one thing, I was facing a major surgery to remove said kidney with the “large mass.”

I will put on my kippa tomorrow and say a prayer for the memory of those lost that day and those who were lost going in harm’s way to kill the perpetrators.

Life on the Graveyard Shift…

Things are redundant around here for the most part. 

It’s show up at 2300, do the inventory and take care of the hazmat….

Issue tools, laptops and vehicles to the maintainers. It’s the same kids and stuff……

Servicing and scheduled maintenance take place here in the deep dark hours of the night. 

This is a short week due to the upcoming Memorial Day weekend. Friday is a “Family Day” as determined by Air Force Material Command…… 4 day weekend…….

This is my best friend during these hours……
