Glad to hear from you. CONGRATS on the new baby, and hope DW and baby are doing well and the other kids like having a new sibling.
Also congrats on passing the Welding test. Yeah, we do things we don't always like in order to accomplish a goal... like paying off the truck or other bills.
Sorry for the "no internet" isolation... but hope things continue to go well and looking forward to hearing from you.

Congratulations on the new baby girl! Good time to take the layoff. Now back to work! In Michigan no less, for the winter? BRRRRR!

Son is laid off, job ended. They were sending hands to North Dakota, he took a pass on that. LOL He’ll be in late Monday or Tuesday.

Try to check in with us when you can!

I used to 17-20 years ago work refrigeration. Oddly doing it now for the first time in 15 yrs. Occasionally it might be summertime and you have to go into a -20 to -40 blast freezer. You wouldn't believe how much a bread sack over your sock and in your boot helps.

It’s really funny that you mention this. Just this morning I was remembering how my mom used to send us to school with bread bags over our feet inside our boots. I couldn’t really remember if it was because our boots had holes in them or what. Apparently she knew it would help keep our feet warm. I do not remember the other kids having bread bags, though.

This was in Michigan, btw. Detroit area.

We used plastic bags... bread bags or whatever. I use the "walmart" type bags to make getting pull on boots off easier... and to keep feet drier ....fits over shoes and then can slide into the tingley type pull on boots... if only I could still get them on due to the ankle...
Did find some called "dry shod" that are ankle height and I can get them on the replaced ankle... had to go a little bigger size for the ankle being "bigger"/more swollen.. so the right is a little loose... will just put on an extra sock on that foot if I have to... Not cheap but have a good "rough tread" sole and are waterproof... like muck boots but I like them better... and they are wider which is what I needed...

Good morning all. Got another work week under the belt. I'm "Rig" welding up here and my welder quit last week. Got a new pc board for it and it still doesn't weld. Thankfully this company has little electric welders and encourage you to use them. That saves $25 a day in gas and the $500 it would take in fuel to go home to switch machines plus the loss of a weeks wage.
I'm think I'm going to find a lighthouse and some post cards today to send home to the kiddos. I think there is 2 lighthouses in this town.
