Missing any sort of mile stone or celebration is the worst part of jobs like mine. Many ppl who serve or work in oil & gas etc say the same.Just watched a movie with my family via iPads by pointing it @ the TV. My kids call me iPad dad. Its a bit sad but kinda funny.@AoB32 they did not say past 2nd place. I would think top ten in a field of 50 just guessing.@motogp4601 I knew u were.
