Well about one week to go before I head down to the Salt Flats for
BMST https://bonnevillespeedtrials.com.

I will be a volunteer this year doing night security.
No one is allowed on the salt after sundown but they need security since
all the racers leave their equipment on the salt.

Should be an unique experience being out there at night.

Lots of strong coffee needed this morning (no sleep for the wicked). I filled my mug with some Bustelo, plenty left in the pot for those that need a bit of a kick.

Working till 1 today, then off to the condo to try and get it ready to rent. It's hard moving from one place to another, but trying to move one full house into another full house is harder.

Wife left me full hot pot of Dunkin Donuts coffee as she flew outa of the door for work this morning.

Sitting here irked as I watch the news. Cedric Benson wrecked in Austin TX on his scooter Saturday. Passenger died.

News caster worded it like Cedric hit the van as it pulled out. Like he was at fault. Some out here think motorcycles have no road rights.
No mention of who had right of way.
Just irked me for a second. Since I have no dog in this hunt.

I aint drinking coffee this morning as I am making me green tea instead. So the pot is is going to waste ,

I'll take a swig on the coffee. No sense in letting bean water go to waste. I dislike the weekends that I have to work, because it feels like the longest work week ever. Other than that, I have 4 hours of work to shave off the work week, and sometimes, like this week, I'll use some of my saved up time off, and use 4 hours of it to have Friday off. So this will be a short week for me!
