Good day speakies. I hope everyone had a safe and fun 4th of July weekend. Unfortunately reality has set in and most of us are returning back to work. On the other hand I am working ten straight days because of a schedule change. Until the end of the year yours truly is now going to be off Fri/Sat!!! Wifey and I are extremely excited because now we can feel like a normal couple and actually have weekends together. Looking forward to the weekends with her. Now, lets see what going on this week and day in history....
