      I never understood what a "bicentennial baby" meant growing up, hard to believe USA is only a 243yr old country...being old as a Susan B Anthony coin has it's (dis)advantages lol


      Lol, how could you not know what that meant? I was reminded of it often when I was younger..

      I mean címon, the Freedom Train - dope!

        I am? I was just browsing salaries for the jobs from back then. Been a long time since I've seen a pay stub.



        The economy is doing something wrong seeing inflation alone should cause that salary rate to go from $20 to $34.

            Construction industry, not automotive.



            Journeyman mason from ~1997-2004 (apprenticeship started in 1996), topped out at just under $21/hr (which was avg for experience). Searched local jobs just to see what is out there since construction is booming here in SFL, same job is boasting $14-18 as if it's good money by today's standard.

                Any plans? I might head over to the drag strip tomorrow to watch some racing. Not much going on besides that.

                  I've got over two more hours to go. UGH. I hate working the day after the 4th. I used to get the 5th off at my old company.

                  I'm ready to have a drink, jump in the pool and end the night with some Stranger Things.

                    I took today off. Went to Costco and Cabela's, then went and saw Dark Phoenix. Tomorrow I'm gonna go offroading in the jeep. But it is 95 degrees out...oof

                          Summer is just starting here.

                          The summer I decided that working outside wasn't for me was when it was 110 out and I was digging dirt out of trenches for house foundations.

                            I just drove past death valley, it was 101. Not to bad all things considered.

                                We have 22% humidity. I spent 2 years in Hawaii. If I never see 85 & 85% 24/7 again I'm good.
