Happy that the Vintage DC Comics Calendar is back!

Interesting choice for the cover of a 2016 calendar.  Does it have a twofold meaning?

I was pleasantly surprised when I walked into Books-A-Million at Edgewater Mall in Biloxi, MS, Saturday and saw a new Vintage DC Comics Calendar for 2016!  Asgard Press made these calendars in the past for a few years.  I always bought them because they were so awesome, but they haven't made them in a while.  I hadn't even heard that they were going to start making them again for 2016.  I always loved these calendars because they showed old DC Comics comic book covers.

The calendar cover is a comic book cover of Wonder Woman running for president.  Right off the bat, I realized why that cover may have been picked: in 2016, Wonder Woman is going to be featured on the big screen for the first time ever in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and also in 2016, there may be a woman elected president for the first time!  And I hope there is!  (Clinton, anyway, not Fiorina.)

The cover used for May 2016 is of Hawkman #1, from 1964.  I own that issue, and its one of my most valuable comics.

Oh, and this calendar is BIG, too, 11"x30" when opened up all the way.  And I got it for 50% off the suggested retail price of $21.95.  Calendar shopping is always best after Christmas, cause you can always get them for a lot of percentage points off!

Halloween and honor roll

+Barbra and +Kaitlin both made The Osceola Times last week!  Barbra handed out candy at a school for +American Greetings, and Katie made the honor roll at her school!

A Jedi wasn't the only thing Barbra was for Halloween this year!

Katie starting her senior year off right!

CC 2015

My company convenience started this past Thursday, May 7!  Yee haw!  The CC paper said I'm supposed to go back July 13, which would mean that I'll get 9 and a half weeks off.  But I might have to go back June 29, which would mean that I would only get 7 and a half weeks off.  But shoot, I want the whole 9 and a half weeks; 7 and a half is just getting started!  Hahaha!!

Fridays off in the past...Company Convenience in the future

This past Friday was my first Friday working in five months!  My Fridays off began Friday, October 31, when I called in sick to work.  After that, I started taking vacation almost every Friday through the end of February.  The only Fridays I didn't take vacation were the Fridays already given off by the company, which were the day after Thanksgiving, the day after Christmas, and the day after New Year's Day.  March 6 would have been the first Friday I worked since October, but we were given a bad weather day for the winter storm!  So March 13 was the first Friday I worked in 20 weeks!  (We did have to work on Saturday, March 7, however, so that was the weekend that my three-day (at least) weekends ended.)

But don't feel too sorry for me; I only have a few more weeks to work, and then I'll be off work for a while on Company Convenience again!
