Its the 4th of July weekend finally. This will be the first time since I've been with Sun that I've actually taken it off. Up until the last 3 or 4 years, we were running will full staff in Service over the week of the 4th. Recently, apparently due to some accounting discount/writeoff we can take by forcing people to use vacation time (There are a LOT of Sun people that never take vacation) Sun started to shutdown over the 4th of July.
I always opted to work because 1) I hate dealing with the crowds on the 4th and 2) I take a 2 week vacation towards the end of August that usually had me wind up in Glacier National Park and one sometime earlier in the year to Las Vegas.
This year is different. My youngest brother is getting married. Poor guy. Of course his wedding is in Texas... In Texas in July. Its gonna be hot out.
We'll see how that goes. It looks like I'm going to have to come up with some ideas for some form of a bachelor party. His Best Man isn't flying in until late on the night before the wedding and I don't think that anyone else is coming up with anything. This could be especially challenging as I've been told that the county that Austin is in is dry! (aka. Nothing stronger than soda pop!)
More when I get back.
On a side note, my cars fixed. Just need to go pick it up now.
