Last year my youngest son (the one with the RN wife) called me from the airport;

"Mom I'm headed to Dubai." Just deadpan....

I'm freakin' out....MY country bumpkin son is headed to DUBAI?????

He promised he wouldn't even leave the...not sure what he called it...compound?

5 weeks on, 5 weeks off X2

CRAZY money.

Came back and bought their first house using those 10 weeks' pay as a serious down payment.


If age is a state of mind, and I've lost my mind, I'm AGELESS, right?
Give me 40 acres and I'll turn this rig around:

F250 Super Duty 2013 Tuxedo Black "Biff"

As for me, 15+ years in the oil patch, 6 in Canada and 9 in US. And probably another 15+ more years before I can retire. I take leftovers for lunch these days or stop by Subway once in a while for lunch (healthier and best price for your money). These days we have to cut down on expenses, so no more eating out during lunch time or buying unhealthy food from the gut wagon for that matter. Otherwise I can't afford to go camping
