    Getting some time off...

    I just checked with my boss this morning... I have enough time off accrued at the moment that I can take the rest of the year off.

    Evidently I don't use vacation at the rate my employer generously gives it to me... SO. I am taking a couple of days this week, three more days next week, and then I was already taking the week between christmas and new years off.

    Lori just told me she's hiding the keyboard, locking up my work computer and sending me to the shop.

    Under the circumstances Ned, I'd suggest listening to your wife.
