CC 2019...extended!!!

I received a call from American Greetings today saying that my Company Convenience has been extended by a week!  Woooo hoooo!  Now I go back to work July 15 instead of July 8.  That's great because it helps to make up for us getting CC so late anyway.  We should have gotten it a week or two earlier than we did back in May.  If we had went back July 8, we would only have been off 6 and a half weeks, so now we'll be off 7 and a half weeks.  So that's more like it, because we should get 8-10 weeks off every year.  In my opinion, anyway.  😉

Batman foils thieves who rob little towns along the Mississippi River in this month's Batman calendar. Was Osceola one of the towns?

I have the Vintage Batman 2019 Calendar by Asgard Press.  Every month features a different vintage Batman comic book cover.  This month's cover (the cover for June) is Detective Comics #90 from August 1944.  The title of the issue's Batman story is "Crime Between the Acts!"  It tells the story of a showboat called the Mississippi Mermaid that travels down the Mississippi River.  The troupe aboard the ship entertains the "river folk" at the little towns along the river, and during the intermissions of their shows, the troupe sneaks off the ship and robs the towns blind.  That is, until they're stopped by Batman and Robin!

I read the issue on the DC Universe streaming service and I was disappointed to find out that my hometown of Osceola, Arkansas was not one of the little towns that the showboat stopped at!

It was funny, though, that the showboat captain & leader of the river gang that robbed the towns was named Captain Ben.  After all, I played a character called Captain Ben in our Star Trek series of movies at Dramedy Productions!

Hmmmm...this Captain Ben doesn't look much like my Captain Ben...

Got my Company Convenience started today at 10am!  This was one of the longest times it's ever taken to get Company Convenience.  It may have even been the longest.  But got it I finally did!  Beginning today, I'm on my voluntary layoff for 6 weeks, 3 days, and 5 hours.  Summer break from school has begun!

Got my Company Convenience papers yesterday, buddy.  Hell to the yeah!  Got them a whole week later than I did last year, which really, really sucked, but at least I finally got them.  And I'm not to return to work until July 9!  Awwww yeah!  😀

CC 2017

Just got Company Convenience again!  Today was my last day of work.  CC officially starts Monday, May 8, and the paper says for me not to return to work until July 17!  That's the full 10 weeks off!  BOO-YAH!

CC 2016

I'm a little late posting this, but I'm on Company Convenience again!  It started Wednesday, May 4th.  My paper says I return July 11th, but I'll probably have to go back before then.  Not that I'm hoping that's the case.  I wouldn't go back until August or September or October if they let me off that long!
