Pretty busy night at the hospital. We discharged as many folks as possible to let them go home for Christmas, but still have many that need to stay. Sure kept my crew busy cleaning rooms. Much busier than normal, but they were awesome, and I let as many as possible go home early. One of my senior housekeepers impressed the h-e-double-hockey-sticks out of me tonight, and found a Christmas present to boot that I thought was incredible.
Tonight as she was cleaning a room I went in, and saw her detailing the baseboards in the corner of the room. (Normally a floor tech responsibility.) Not sure what made her decide to do it, other than she saw it needed done, and did it. Well, I walked in to check on her -- as I usually do with all the housekeepers, but not on every room -- and I saw her on her knees checking something out in her hand. I asked her what she found, and she said it was a small diamond she had lost from a ring several weeks ago! She said she didn't even know she had lost it until she pawned it recently, and the guy at the pawn shop noticed one of the stones was missing. It was a very uniquely cut stone, and albeit small, she recognized it immediately.
Ho ho ho, well Christmas has come and gone over here again. Had a great day, hope everyone else did as well. Now we can ready ourselves for the next year... God Bless you all, God Bless America.
We drove all the way to Austin, 45 minutes NNE, this morning and spent the day with our daughter, son-in-law and their two boys, ages 6 and 8.
Traffic on I-35 was so light I was able to use Cruise Control most of the way.
That doesn't happen very often.
Yes, the boys can wear you out, and usually do.
The younger one aspires to be the Net Minder for the Pittsburgh Penguins.
He even got a Goalies Glove for his right had, he is a leftie, but shoots right-handed.
We had typical Texas Christmas Dinner: HEB Brisket, Cole Slaw, Garlic Fried Green Beans, Fruit Salad, Veggie Tray, Freshly Baked Dinner Rolls, Fresh Baked Cherry Pie and Chocolate Pie, along with some Marinelli's Sparkling Cider.
I look forward to the New Year, anticipating a great year, maybe the year the Lord Returns.
May each of you have a wonderful New Year.
What God says is best, is best, though all the men in the world are against it. - John Bunyan, The Pilgrim's Progress

Diamondback: Wave returned, Mike, though different vintage--my grandfather was a Green Dragon around '65-'70ish including Osan; one of the last out of NATO Chateauroux and a lot of that planeload ended up posted at McChord.
