I am writing this at a little after 0300

 because I just took the trash off of the boat I work on.

This is one of the few work related posts I will make. I just wanted the world out there to note that a working boat is a 24/7 living, breathing organism.

Whole most of the reat of the world is in bed at 0300 there is always someone out there doing something unglamorous in the middle of the night.

Most people don't see that there are a lot of people up at odd hours making other people's lives easy.

Much of this work is unheralded and unsung. It can range from janatorial work to serious engineering. Someone has to mop the floor and someone else has to run the board of the electrical grid.

As far as boats and ships go, there is no Tom Bodett of Motel 6 fame to leave the light on for you out at sea. The show goes on 24/7 without a break.

It's probably the same for a lot of other people, too. Still, the average guy doesn't realize what is going on behind the scenes.

On the other hand, there are pretty good jobs out there for people that are willing to take them and work odd hours.

To find out why the blog is pink just cut and paste this: NO ANIMALS WERE HARMED IN THE WRITING OF TODAY'S ESSAY
