    A good day for me, was when the team concept works, or things go well, everythings orderly, a job goes smooth, I feel like a true professional. I go home feeling like a heart surgeon. Thats what this job is capable of allowing us to feel.....

    Out at a base, helpiing the base mechanic get inspections complete. Pilot is helping by cleaning, running tools, coffee, pizza etc.
    12+ hrs a day ( we will not get into how much + there was) for four days.
    late the fourth night, we do the test flight. Perfect.
    As the stickies get pasted into the logbook, tone is called.
    Aircraft hauls ass, find out later, transported 20s female and 3-5yo from accident scene. All made it.

    Pop a beer, pray that somebody cares enough to take care of the aircraft stationed near my kin as well. Fall asleep in the middle of the beer.
    yes you can have overkill....... but, can you ever have too much overkill?

    Default Everyday. Single. Day.

    Everyday I get to be around an aircraft is a good day. Everyday I get to touch an aircraft, is a better day. Everyday I get to fix an aircraft and get my hands dirty, is a great day. Everyday I get to fly, well, it just doesn't get better than that.

    Plus, everyday that I don't have to wait on customers, like what I did at my old job, is the best, most awesomest day, ever. I'd rather have a bad day in aviation than a good day in customer service.

    I'm drinking your cool aid Glenn...

    I make my wife breakfast with coffee just about every morning and I bring it to her in bed. We catch up on the the morning news as we drink coffee together..That is a good day/morning for me. Since I'm not working I do all the house work and hang out with my kids. FYI to everyone, I'm not whipped I'm just being a good husband and father. With me home we are saving $1500 a month just on babysitting alone. I can't wait to start working in this industry that I have always been wanting to do just about my whole life. I know that I"m not going to get rich in it, but my love for aviation is fine for me. I'm a what you call a people person and I get alone with just about everyone. I'm keeping everything positive that there's going to be something here soon. In August I will have to find something, that's when the kids go back to school. I will have to find some type of a job just to keep my sanity in check even if it's in home improvement or sales (which I hate with a passion). I hate not working and a good day to me is working in anything that lets me get my hands dirty and use my learners licenses that I pissed off so long and work so hard to get...

    Remember, I'm laughing with you not at you!!!!
