Ever since I started this job, Joey's been giving me grief for not telling you all about it. I think she feels I'm somehow being dishonest for not sharing such an important aspect of my life (and the possible reason why my posts are sometimes months apart).
So what is it that I do?
I'm on the ground crew for an airline, babysitting planes and chauffeuring baggage. The pay isn't great, but my whole family (Jeff, kids, parents) and I can now fly for free. Once we can synchronize our schedules, that is. Since I got out of training 6 months ago, Jeff and I haven't had a single day off together.

In theory, I got this job so we can fly for free. In reality, though, Jeff is the only one who's actually gone anywhere.
It does give me a chance to take pictures with my phone, most of which are of sunsets. Cause man we have some nice ones out there.

(Leaning out the galley door. This is the place where I most often crack my head.)
(Pulled over while running bags to photograph the sunset. Because I have my priorities.)
(While gassing up my tug. I love how the sun is shining straight through the windows on the closest plane.)
(Waiting for international bags in the bowels of the airport. Just out of frame is a family of chuds.)
