    My work week started yesterday so I was already "screwed". :eek:
    It's fairly slow today; staged a Citation II, a Citation Jet, a Cessna 210, a Beechcraft Bonanza, and Piper Cherokee before 06:15 and fueled the three pistons -- no arrivals expected.
    [Correction just had an arrival: "Sky Fox" news helicopter.]
    Hope everyone else who's working has a "light" day. :)

    Yup, I work at the airport -- I've been doing it since '94. It's high time to change that's why I've been working on getting into the fire service since 2004. With a little luck I hope to get on Twentynine Palms FD as a reserve in few months.
