    Another update about my wife's at-home job: Job was suppose to end the middle of April, but, here we are at the end of September and she's been extended yet again until the 3rd of December. She's already let them know that we will be gone for a few days in the beginning of December (Las Vegas National Finals Rodeo) and they are fine with that. Heck, neither the company in southern Florida, she works for, or the temp agency in Chicago, she gets paid from, complained about the days off she required for our Dodge City, Kansas trip.

    So, come along the end of November, will see if she gets another extension into 2022. The salary she is getting sure is nice, but her at-home job sure has hindered us from taking out our boat. We've only got a couple of weeks in October to do that, before boating season is completely over.

    Are we supposed to feel sorry for you and your wife?

    No one "feels sorry" for Cody and his wife, Lon, and that was a nasty thing to say.

    If I may add, it’s the exact opposite. At first, the whole employment thing looked like it was going to be a train wreck but Cody’s wife kept chugging along and got where she wanted to go.
    Now, they have some funds that they can put back or enjoy life a little more than what would have been.
    To me, she’s a senior champ and needs to be complimented.

    And yes, Lon’s statement was totally unnecessary.

    @Lon Tanner

    Of course, a more tactful way of stating the same thing might have been, "We feel sorry......"

    Think nothing of it folks, I have Lon on "Ignore", so, if I want to see what he posts, I can, but if not.........I don't! Sorry Lon, but that's the way it is for now.

    A couple of weeks in October? Does that mean you are completely tied up except for a couple weeks in October? I would think you could be pushing it a bit relying on the weather in October to be boating in Colorado. My youngest son already has his boat put up for the winter. It sounds like your wife has a good job--work from home and can take days off as she wishes.

    Our fourth, and last time, on the local lake last year was Oct. 11th. Our first measurable snow is generally during Halloween week, but there have been years that didn't happen. We like to take our boat in for "winterization" around the third week of October. Before taking it in, will take most everything out of the boat and drain the block. There are those boaters that won't drain their block, take the boat in for "winterization" and the marine service will make them sign a waiver about the water in the block. The waiver is so if the engine does freeze, the marine service can't be held responsible.

    We leave the two engine batteries in (dual-battery thing), so they can fog the engine. They need to start the engine to do that. Due to not having the boat on the water but once or, if we are lucky, twice, we won't have the engine oil or gear oil changed. Just hoses disconnected, engine fogged, gas stabilizer added and that's it, which is $300. After that, take it back to storage, take out batteries and on both deck and full cover. After any snowstorm, of measurable inches, will go over and take the snow off of the boat.

    As far as my wife's at-home job goes, if they wouldn't give her the time off she requests, she'd have to quit.

    About my grammar. You happen to be the only one complaining about it.

    Cody, that's supposed to be SoC. :p

    How many times did y'all get to go out on the boat this summer? Do you fish or just go boat riding?

    Well then you should know it's "grammatician," unless you meant "gram-mortician."
