 What are your night-time, after-shift activities that only other vampires would really understand.  I write this as I sit here, 0930 hrs, finishing off a beer and sandwich, before retiring for the day, you know, like normal people would do after work.  The shift has headed out for Kegs-n-Eggs before, but it's hard to find a suitable place to hit the bar after work.  What are some of your "night-life" morning routines and activities?

I have 2 Jobs so I work pretty much every day. But when I get off in the morning, I usually hit the Waffle House for some Coffee and shoot the Bull with a couple of Old timers that regular there, Then I go home and catch the news for a few minutes, then it's off to bed for my six hours before the next shift. It's Not a bad life and I'm still pre-burn out stage so I can do it and make a little cash on the side then why not?

Lately I been working out because I have been motivated to do so.  I was told its addictive once you get into it.  Damn yankee lie I tell ya!  So I do it because I need to.  Wait I guess that would be an addiction if its a need.

With the weather getting warmer it will be back to the trusty beer and bon fires. Time to part ways with the early opening establishments.

We/cops have a really nice FOP lodge to invade after shifts end.  It's large well equiped, big screen TV, stereo, pool table, complete kitchen facilities, hugh rock fireplace, beer and soda vending 24-7 (cans), plenty of chairs and tables.  No guns and no uniform shirts w/badge allowed.  Was great, safe place for some really great bs sessions and to relax and unwind after a busy third or second shift.  Sometimes a bunch of the shift would get together there and cook a big breakfast.  Family events a few times a year.  There was always parties on the big party holidays like Halloween and New Years Eve with a wet bar and food, DJ and sometimes even a live band.  All maintained and funded by our FOP membership.  Monthly FOP meetings are held there.  The first time I went there all I could say was, this place is great!  I can't count the hours I spent there.  Everybody works at keeping the place nice and clean.  Really miss the times there since I retired.
