New Doors

It's been a busy week. Not busy really...but tiring. I worked overtime Saturday and Sunday. Monday I sat airport standby. Tuesday I sat at home. Wednesday I got a 2 day trip that finished today. The trip was a doosey to begin with. Due to weather in Dallas I got exactly the minimum FAA required rest of 8 hours that started 15 minutes after we landed and stopped 20 minutes before we left this morning. Basically I got 5 hours sleep and worked 12 hours today on that little rest.

Anyways doors. Dog doors really. Our back door is almost entirely glass. Putting in a dog door is impossible. Kelli wants a dog door. I want security. Kelli bought a new back door and is having a hole cut to install an electronic dog door. Each dog will have a transmitter on the collar...basically a mini garage door opener. The door will only open for each dog and be locked otherwise. The door will also have a window with enclosed blinds. No more blinds banging around or getting dusty. The blinds are between the panes of glass.

My car is getting little use. I have had it for almost 5 months. I have driven just over 3000 miles. Leasing is good for me. I "should" be at 5800 miles right now.

I got a set schedule for September. It's not a bad one. I get Thursdays-Saturdays off. On Sundays I start at 1:30PM and finish on Wednesdays at 1PM. I don't have more than 3 legs in a day. I get decent overnights. I will spend my nights in Little Rock Arkansas, Amarillo, Texas and Santa Barbara, California. Santa Barbara is a fun trip....flying out to the west coast in the evening chasing the sunset. We land right on the coast.

Having the set schedule will allow me to plan my life better and move flights around. On one of the overnighs in Amarillo Kelli is going to join me and we are going to eat at that famous steak place up there.

I love my Macbook. My next project will be installing the Mac OS on a PC. Should be fun. Lots of forums on how to do it with specific hardware.

Let the good times roll.
