    There's something about coming in early on saturday mornings. Coffee and toasted bagel with cream cheese in hand I arrive and work alone with my laptop hooked up to a sound system and the tunes pumping.
    I jump around from job to job and I am way more productive than on a weekday with constant interuptions, leading to a lack of commitment to any project.

    Ahhhh the peacefulness.....GottaGo~~~

    Yes, it's very peaceful indeed. Just finishing up some loose ends on this wrap job.

    I like working Saturday too (at times). Just me and the embroidery machine with "The Whistler" in the background.

    Exact same way I am feeling today. Got to shop about 6:15 and haven't stopped yet. I have accomplished more this morning than all week! Hope everyone has a great weekend!

    I HATE WORKING WEEKENDS. Working weekends means I screwed up during the week and have to pay a penalty for it.

    Gene, you are correct! - Now don't go a stealin' my account! LOL

    I worked as high-end collision repair & paint tech for them for 11 years prior to getting into the graphics thing. Now I gotta know who your sis-in-law is. I prob know her!

    And yes, I do want to stop by your shop still, just never seem to be up that way when I have time to stop in, it's usually late night when I'm going to a band gig up that way or the middle of the day when I'm already pressed for time.
    We'll have to just set up a time someday and stick to it!:toasting:

    I love working a Saturday every once in a while, just not often enough that people expect you to be in. If they know I'm there the phone will ring off the hook, customers will drop in, buds will want to shoot the breeze and drink the day away with me. To me it's the best feeling in the world to be able to focus and accomplish something without having interruptions constantly.

    I also like being able to sleep in until almost noon with my wife after a long week so I don't come in to work on Saturdays very often.

    I like working on Saturday too, but I refuse to pick up that phone. I love you silent mode.
