Middle Day at Lucky #13

It’s our middle day here at Lucky #13 and we’re trying to ride it out quietly. It’s “that time of the month”¬† (check time) so things have been a little crazy.

I HATE THIS CYCLE!

We’re back and it’s Mon. Wed. Friday week…ugggggg! I HATE it! It seems as if you can never get anything done when working this cycle..at home that is. It’s rainy and cool anyway so I guess being here is as good as being anywhere else. It’s been a busy one too. We obviously haven’t had any fires but our brothers ...
