Manteca Chick-fil-A Construction Update II

Today I had an errand to run in Manteca so I again stopped by the construction site of the Chick-fil-A.

The picture is taken from a bit further back from the last time so you can also see where the building will be.

Manteca, Chick-fil-A, Construction updateHere you can see that the pad of the building is about ready to be poured. I am actually surprised that the building was not off the ground yet. Perhaps there were some delays.

I am a bit excited as when it opens this will be the Closest Chick-fil-A to me.

Now to see how long it takes to finish everything and open.

Back to Work

After a short vacation to attend a wedding in Nebraska I was back at work this week.

sausage on grill, picnic, Friday LunchOn Friday I went to the park for a picnic with some of my colleagues. Since I work for a German company we called it Oktoberfest in the park. That meant that we had to have sausage.

I had a good time visiting with colleagues and watching some of them play volleyball and other games.

A nice end to a busy week.
