    Mankind is drunk on power as they collectively cower in their homes and submit to arrest for standing too close. LOL!

    All I recall was that it was the VERY FIRST day I felt I had covered my butt with the retiring program. It took the F'in Union an extra 27 days to get a written letter to me saying that I qualified for everything a 30 year out called for. At the time I didn't trust the Union anymore than I did the company. Their word over the phone meant nothing to me. I didn't want to be "that guy" who walked out a week too early. 30 years and 27 days----27 days too many.

    Are you taking it with the holiday included or are you taking it the week before?

    I would always take mine with the holiday included for the extra pay and, yes, I would adjust my W-4 accordingly.

    I'm taking that week (week ending the 4th). Its one of my favorite holidays and lots of fun things to do with my wife and kids. If the holiday was during the week I would just use the extra day somewhere else. Like Thanksgiving week this year I will schedule the extra day somewhere else. Maybe get a week in October. I haven't used any time yet this year so I have 11 days to use still.

    I've got enough fireworks left over from last year to start a war. My Daughter stops in Mo. when she comes up here every summer and buys a truck load. One year we had 5 different fires burning in the woods around my house from a big multi-rocket thing that malfunctioned. That was fun.
