Saddling Up

Where does the time go?  7 days a week X 12 hours per day = 84 hours.   I should have plenty of time to get all the piddling things on my to-do list accomplished.  It really doesn’t work out that way though.  The first 5 hours of my shift which begins at 3am are in total darkness.    Starting about 7am and running for the next 2 hours, the gate is pretty danged busy so I am constantly in and out of the RV.  One good thing about all this time spent inside the RV is getting caught up.  Plenty of
