As with Halloween, Thanksgiving has come early here in Campbellsville. Amazon had a catered Thanksgiving meal of turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, green beans, stuffing, pumpkin pie and apple pie today, for all the employees. It was very good, and we both appreciated the gesture by Amazon. My pedometer read 11 miles at the end of our shift, so I figured I burned off everything I ate…could have had another piece of pie!!
Amazon also paid tribute to all the employee’s that are Veteran’s, and gave them a special pin.
Today the 12th and final group of workcampers started, so Amazon handed out the 2013 Amazon Camperforce t-shirts to all of us as we left. People were very excited about the color of the shirts this year, turquoise. There is a day in December that we are all supposed to wear them. Amazon has lot’s of activities planned in December for all their employees, to keep us going during peak season. It should be an interesting month.
Tonight they are predicting an “artic blast” coming thru, with temperatures below freezing. We might even see a snowflake or two! This just gives us further incentive to keep looking at more campgrounds in Florida for February!
Last week we did go to the National Corvette Museum and the Corvette Assembly plant in Bowling Green, KY. I have been having problems uploading photos with this slow as molasses internet, so I will wait to post on that until I can get the photos working.
We signed up for voluntary overtime on Thursday. We have to call the morning of, to see if it is still on, as it could be cancelled. So place your orders folks, so we can keep busy!
Last night we had dinner in town with another couple, Phil and Rudee. I have been following their blog for a year or so, and they are now working at Amazon for the first time as well. It was great getting to meet them in person, and listening to their adventures. You can check out their blog at http://workinrvers.blogspot.com/
Tomorrow is our “Friday”, which means “happy dance Tuesday”!! I have a few other ladies that join in with me on the happy dance! It doesn’t take people long to catch on to doing a little dance at the end of the workweek!
Quote for the day: “On this Veterans Day, let us remember the service of our veterans, and let us renew our national promise to fulfill our sacred obligations to our veterans and their families who have sacrificed so much so that we can live free.” – Dan Lipinski
