Working Nights!

We are going to be working nights at from 5 pm to 3:30 am, Wednesday through Saturday, then have three days off. Jim will working in Receiving and I will be in Stowing (put items away in the bins-opposite of "picking"). We are pretty happy about the schedule and about working nights - at least we will see daylight sometime each day.

Last night the owners (Mark and Kym Kays of Express Pro, the temp service we actually work for) came to the campground and provided hot dogs for everyone. Kym handled the large grill and Mark handed out the schedules and answered the many questions.

Jim and I are looking forward to start work Wednesday. I spent last night looking up articles on night work and the best sleep patterns and diets to follow. After talking to some of the night shift couples here, seems most eat two meals a day and only bring snacks for the "dinner" at 10 pm, eat breakfast when they get up and a big "supper" just before they go to work. The Kays have arranged for school buses to transport us to and from work, so we certainly will be saving on diesel.
Oh, we had a pleasant surprise last night. As everyone was gathering I saw someone who looked familiar.

Yes, that is Jim Cumberland from the "Desert Rose Beauty Contest" last February at the Gypsy Journal Rally in Casa Grande, AZ. The lineup is left to right Paul Anderson, Jim Cumberland, Jim Chapman (when he had a mustache), Jay Carter and Smokey Ridgely. In fact Jim C. will be working with me as a stower on the same shift.
It is nice to have Marcia and Jim here with us in Coffeyville.
That's it for today, folks. Talk with you later. Remember - you are loved!
