On-Call… No prob, a quiet holiday weekend so far.
Until the phone rings… The caller ID shows K1 Control.
Noooo!! It is Christmas Day!
What is wrong now? Time? 4 pm, daycrew should be doing final checks before releasing the telescope, just the time things usually go wrong. ACS?!? It has been creating a lot of trouble lately. Autofill? My usual problem child… No, I checked that already today. HIRES? Tonight’s instrument that I really know nothing about. Nothing to do but answer the phone…
Just Robert calling to say everything is fine and Merry Christmas.
Thanks Robert… I think.
