Another Global Holiday

I get a bit "tickled" at holidays like Cinco de Mayo and the Fourth of July. You see, almost everywhere in the world tomorrow it will be "the Fourth of July". Tomorrow is the fourth of July in Nigeria, Papua New Guinea, Japan, and even England. While only a few of us will recognize that it's Independence Day, all of us will recognize that it's the fourth of July.

I know...silly, but it still makes me smile.

I made it home [to Port Lavaca] today after putting in a regular work day. The trip took longer than usual and the police were out in force, but I didn't have any problems. It's so nice to be home. Tomorrow I will be working all day on prep work for my trip to PNG so it will be busy, but I have such a good view when working from home it really doesn't seem much like work. I'm missing my sweetie, but we are on the back side of that even. He'll be home in less than two weeks and I can't wait.

Hope you all enjoy your Fourth of July tomorrow! I know I will!

  2. Hi Billy! Leo's title at the moment is "Vendor Coordinator" at a still-under-construction LNG unit in Escravos. In his role he coordinates the timing and provides for the needs (office, equipment, interaction with other vendors, etc.) of vendors that come on site as systems and equipment is ready for testing, start-up, etc. Good to hear from you. Email me at if you want to chat.
