Night Shift

Not long ago our son CJ was scheduled for a graveyard shift at our local police department where he’s a records specialist. This got me thinking about the only time I worked graveyard, back in the early 70s during a break from college. My mother worked at the Almaden bottling plant in Los Gatos, California, and she pulled a few strings to get me a job, just as she had for my older brother a few years earlier. The job didn't go well. Read about it (here).

    1. Believe it or not, but I've seen quite a few elderly co-workers in the past keep up with or do more work than their younger counterparts.
