Well Welcome back to blogging.  I love the photos.  I think they will add a nice touch to your detailed stories.  I hope you get well and promoted and turn into the boss of them all but you will always miss the night shift.  There was something about that year that was mesmerizing.  The direction fellow was a great character too.  Isn't it funny in life that you really don't need to make anything up...Reality is odd enough.
