The Vacation is Over….

Still having troubles with uploading pics to the blog so will post with no pics for now and when my ‘technical adviser’ has sometime and can see if he can figure out the issue I will add the pics.  I’ve figured out that if you ‘click’ on the picture to view it it is clear … Continue reading »

Shhh…

We slept in until 7:00 am Saturday morning and boy did it feel good!  We had a nice leisurely morning surfing the internet, checking email and watching TV.  We didn’t end up having breakfast until 10:00 am…eggs, Opa’s and biscuits with home made kumquat marmalade a gift from, Hans, our safety guy.

Workover Rig, BBQ And A Handy Guy

Ladies Luncheon & Wireline

We expected a quiet night last night but we were wrong.  Michael was fairly busy with water trucks, equipment deliveries, etc.  He claims he was able to sleep in between vehicles but it couldn’t have been very much. The last of the coiled tubing equipment pulled out about 7:00 am.  Before all of the coiled … Continue reading »
