Labor Day : Who is workin' and who is playin' today ?


September 1, 2008, 11:36 AM
So, as you can imagine I am sitting at work today and I am kinda bored so I though I would see if there was anyone else out there joining me. Its been a pretty slow day, what about you? :uhoh:

I bet theres a lot of people out firing up the grill and icing down the beverages :D

I wish I was heading to the range with my newly acquired Colt Anaconda :(

Let's see. Did the grill and family thing yesterday. Calendar ( shows open, so I might just go play.

Saturday my family had our annual summer barbeque for family and friends. Lotsa fun, but being host always take it out of me.

September 1, 2008, 12:53 PM
Play today. I've already been to the range and returned. Windy, light drizzle. Rain started on way home.

September 1, 2008, 12:53 PM
At work, little or nothing to do, almost no one is in today; I'm just racking up billable hours.

September 1, 2008, 12:56 PM

Happy Labor Day to all!

My son and I have a nice bag of doves already. Got them cleaned and going for a few more pretty soon.

They're flying high and fast and I can't find my choke tubes (using IC and Mod). Gonna take my 11-48 with fixed mod barrel out next, maybe my percentages will go up.

I have today off...the wife has me working. Later on, I'll call the guys, slip off to the range later today and then top the night off with a couple of beers and a game of poker.

September 1, 2008, 02:08 PM

Just got back from the range. It's half price for a lane on holidays.

September 1, 2008, 02:19 PM
It's just another Monday for me, albeit a slow one. Work, work, work...

September 1, 2008, 02:22 PM
Got back from The Conference From Hell, and I'm trying to clean up. I've got another bunch of Oleg's images to get online for t-shirts too...

September 1, 2008, 02:52 PM
I don't fell so bad, theres a lot of people working ;)

I sure wish I was huntin' & shootin'! :(

We did the BBQ/pool party last night too, I swear I saw a mosquito carrying off a couple BBQ ribs! They were bad :eek:

I guess I had it coming, as soon as I started this "boredom" thread we went out on a call.....and then another....and another..... :cool:

I'm counting down, just 17 more hours before I get off and head to the range :p

I hope everyones Labor day is going great so far :D

September 1, 2008, 02:58 PM
Taking a week off -use it or lose it time - which means mowing, cleaning, fixing, and doing a bunch of stuff that's harder than what I get paid for.

Vacation? Bah, humbug.

September 1, 2008, 05:00 PM
Part work, the garden never takes time off. Part play, was able to shoot 20 slugs off this afternoon. (reloads)

September 1, 2008, 05:01 PM
Correctional facilities never close, but it's ok. Someone has got to do it.
Soon I get to go home and have some stuff off the grill and a nice cold beverage or two dozen. :evil:

September 1, 2008, 05:04 PM
Pulled an 8 hr shift today as usual.

September 1, 2008, 05:08 PM

I'd be wasting ammo if I went to the range today. :o

September 1, 2008, 06:37 PM

Still working, waiting for some primer to dry to I can top coat.

September 1, 2008, 06:58 PM
Doing some reloading (.45 Colt +P's), and some tile and grout trim work in the Bathroom Remodeling Project from Hell. Alternating between them. Not working up much of a sweat with either one today.

Was gonna go to the range today, but I'm too lazy. Maybe tomorrow after work. Fall pistol league starts up in a couple of weeks. (If I was smart, I'd be cranking out .38 Specials to prepare for it)

September 1, 2008, 06:59 PM
Worked in the hospital pharmacy today, Rather slow day. I went back and forth to windows to watch storm clouds and winds pick up from hurricane Worst will be here tomorrow.

September 1, 2008, 07:01 PM
worked over night. I have now friggen idea what the heck i am doing now. I got back to my office at 8am this morning and slept there for 2 hours then drove home. This was after starting work at 7pm yesterday. Well im still up. problem is if i were to fall asleep now i would be wide awake at 2am. So i just have to keep drinking coffee and suffer on this very long long long never ending day.

September 1, 2008, 07:05 PM
I can say working..building a fence, so I can separate the AC unit from my dog...which she already ate the thermostat cables thanks to the dog...I was building a fence today....nice doggie :fire: besides the cold beverages :D it was a busy day

I'll hold a bratwurst back for you, but I'm not sharing the Elk burgers....

September 1, 2008, 07:49 PM
Worked right thru the weekend and am (again!) here at work from noon to midnight.
Oh well;idle hands and all that....

September 1, 2008, 08:21 PM
Baled the last of 2008 hay today. Shouldn't say that still back up for two other guys in case there equipment breaks. After that back down in the trench trying to get my outside water lines fixed. Wanted to be able to fill in the hole today, but found a small puddle of water under a conection.:cuss:

Saturday monring did take a cousins sixteen year old son out shooting along with my brother. .45 ACP, .45 Colt (Carbine & Pistol), .44 Magnum Blackhawk, M1 .30 carbine, Ruger 22/45 and a Ruger 9mm.:D

September 1, 2008, 08:30 PM
I used to work. I didnít like it. I was going to take my granddaughter and some of her friends to the coast today, but Gustov promised to cause traffic problems, so Iím home.

September 1, 2008, 09:01 PM
I took my .22 lr bolt action and put some downrange. I put one target at 100 yards....difficult to keep any kind of group with open sites :D

mmmm, brats

Kind of Blued
September 1, 2008, 11:25 PM
I went to work and got sent home after a couple of hours. I went and bought a holster then took a nap and watched a movie.

So... the holster's good. Comfortable enough to sleep in! :)

September 1, 2008, 11:28 PM
Working..... on the honey do list so that I can shoot the match next weekend.

September 1, 2008, 11:33 PM
Workin the night shift, both last night and tonight. Slept most of the day, got up and did a little yard work before getting ready to head out to work. I don't mind working holidays, keeps me off the road (except for my short commute)and the pay is very good.


September 1, 2008, 11:57 PM
Yeah, the pay is better so that helps. There are some holidays that I would rather be at home with the family, but I don't mind working this one.

Hey Thunderstorm, I'm just across the river from ya. Do you ever some this way?

Countdown until I get off to go to the range: 8 hours

September 2, 2008, 10:20 AM
Hey Thunderstorm, I'm just across the river from ya. Do you ever some this way?

I try to stay out of the peopleís republic of Illinois, too much of a hassle unloading, separating, locking not to mention filling up the chamber with concrete before I cross the river. There is a rare occasion I make it to the fairgrounds for the Gun Show

September 2, 2008, 04:24 PM
Had a long, nice weekend. Went to Va Beach Friday with my best friend/family who have been stationed in Germany for a few years. Got to spend yesterday at the lake with some friends, jetskis and tubes. It was their way of paying us back for taking them shooting a few times.

September 2, 2008, 09:37 PM
