Good luck, CJ!

Been staying busy lately between my usual shifts and working a few OT shifts. Just working an extra day each week sure can add a nice bonus on the pay checks!

I've been busy too..... We worked last weekend and the idiots were out in force. Between the PD, Volunteer Hosemonkeying, and my daughter's softball practice/games I'm pretty wore out... Throw in there not sleeping well during the day and I'm toast.

It looks like everybody's running ragged right about now. At least, starting in April, we get a little unpaid "break" every pay period, thanks to DC......

I'm just looking forward to next week. I work Sunday at my EMS job, have a school shooting drill Monday at my PD job and then I have the rest of the week to figure out how to bore my kids into wanting to go back to school.

Sounds like me, lol. I'm off Friday, have drill with my Guard unit Saturday and Sunday, then I'm off until the following Sunday on vacation. I am MORE than ready for it, too.

Just to change the subject a bit.

http://www.foxnews.com/leisure/2013/...res-next-year/

To make sure the NPT can withstand long-term abuse, it was put through military-grade testing. Engineers shot test tires with 50-caliber rounds from an AK-47 and then subjected them to 5,000 hours of off-roading. On another outing that involved crossing a train tracks, a rail spike punctured the tread band of an NPT, but the rider kept going on it for more than 1,000 miles.

A 50 cal AK-47?

Wow. That's gotta be one MASSIVE AK!

It's been a crappy day here, too. Not from inmates as much as from staff, though.

That will never sell for anything beyond an ATV. It would make sense, but you'd put all the tire manufacturers out of business. Imagine if you only had to buy one set of tires for your car ever.

Well, I got some good news today! I test with LMPD on Friday, March 29th! PT test, written, and oral all in the same day; it should prove interesting, at least!

Congrats!! Don't worry about training or preparing at all. I heard all you need to do is take a 5 hour energy shot right before you get there and you'll sail through... although that guy is still looking for a job... meh, I'm sure you'll do fine!

Thanks, everyone. Lawman, I'm sure hoping so, too. My aunt retired out of this agency, and my grandfather from one of the predecessor agencies that was merged into it. I have some friends on it right now, too, so I *think* I have a pretty good idea of what I'm getting into, lol. It'll be an initial pay cut, but the benefits are better, and it'll cut my commute in half (worst case scenario). Plus, my state retirement time will carry over (same system).
