Most likely the OT is based on 40hr a week, and not daily.

15 an hour you can get in a nap,  I seldom did under 40 an hour and did some 8-10's where I averaged over 60.

How did they get the Druganov back to the states? There is a ban on bringing back war trophies

Congrats to #3


Busy day today..  morning Farmers Market- it was 93 at noon and attendance dropped.  Back at the farm we are uncluttering things. A roll off is here for us to fill. We may need a second one.
We decided we haul any scrap metal to recycler ourselves instead of giving it away for the hauling.

Anyways going to rest up now

Slim congrats to your daughter!
Drove 2 hours, picked one of my Aunts [she's 74], then another hour over to see the other Aunt [She's 81]. Took 'em to lunch, had a great visit, they loved it. We got back a bit ago, long day but super nice.

Bingo. I have 43 hours this week. So for working an 11 hour day, I get a grand total of 3 hours of overtime for the week. It is time and a half.

Seven hours at work today. This evening I'm going to look at some hot air balloons. That's about it.

Owner said  " he brought it back before the ban , he said the 1st. Gulf War....  :-\  I don't know

I don't know the guy that well , he was in the shop, comes in often , and that was his story.

Cool piece of history ...wayyyyyyyy out of my price range anyway

Morning Coffee is up..

Over the wet spring two of our adult goats. Became sickly pneumonia brought on from wet weather - one passed away. Friday the other passed on. Suzanne is blaming herself for it. Of course we did all humanly possible for them.  The others are fine. We don?t own a backhoe so we had to hand dig in this hard ground to bury this one. Neighbor used his for the other one but was not available this time. This morning I ran to feeed store and picked up a bag of lime to mask the smell. Yes, A deeper hole would have helped.

So morning has been busy, hopefully this week will be uneventful.

Hope ya all have a better morning
