Good to Go

Danby chest freezer defrosted and empty

I was sittin’ around last Tuesday evening when I got a text from Marciegirl.   “I am off tomorrow.  Do you still need me to fill in while you go to town?”   Pshaw!!  Is a 50lb baby fat?!?

In reality, I had given up on a supply run for the week and when you are running close to the edge like I was; you best double down.  That very day she texted me I had just received two full Amazon Prime Pantry boxes.  Prime Pantry is a great way to go for dry goods

Best To Leave That A-1 Sauce in the 'Fridge!

If you have been oil field gate guarding long enough,  you will discover one of the job perks is food.   At least down here in the South Texas Eagle Ford Shale  it is. Just finding a decent place to eat can be a real challenge so I guess part of the solution to keeping the rig boys working productively is just to bring the food to them.   Good food etiquette also means including the gate guards as well.  I don’t know who started that custom but you will hear no complaining from us.

The other day the area boss for the
