    Not that work anniversary.
    I just completed 8 years at my current job as a Line Mechanic @ Stemilt Growers, which is by far my longest term job I've had thus far. [nomedia=""]Packing Organic Apples - YouTube[/nomedia](with no sound) that shows some of the main packing line in our main plant in Wenatchee. [nomedia=""]Stemilt Growers - YouTube[/nomedia].

    I'm going to skip tomorrow night's practice, so I can get to bed at a decent hour for the Saturday morning marathon drive to Sandpoint, ID for the SCM meet.

    John, my coach, wants me to really negative split my 800, and work the walls. And I guess have fun, but he didn't say that...
