Today was Employee Appreciation day at Foley Equipment - the local Caterpillar distributor that Corby works for. Several hundred employees met at their new Park City facility (no Corby is not at this location - YET!) for tours, food, games, prizes, etc. They bought the former Optima Bus location at 77th and N. Hydraulic, and it is a fantastic place! The place is huge, with overhead cranes, a paint shop (yes, to paint refurbished machines that wonderful golden yellow and black); tons of square footage, and beautiful offices. Ann (Foley) Konecny threw a wonderful celebration for her employees - which was much appreciated. Employees came from their other Kansas locations: Salina, Great Bend, Liberal and Dodge City. It's nice that some companies still believe in showing employee appreciation!
We also visited with mom, who is seeing much better with her recent cataract surgery and subsequent new glasses; did grocery shopping, and watched the Chicago Cubs win their division. Was Corby happy? YOU BET! Was I happy? YOU BET! That means I didn't have to listen to the "woe is me" crap! HA!
I finished my Karin Slaughter book - Fractured. It was really good! I've got about 30 books to choose from for my next read, but haven't quite decided yet. Right now, I'm reading a few magazines that have piled up...I have to fill that voracious need to read you know!
HAPPY WEEKEND TO ALL!
