9 degrees wind chill. My fingers are frozen. Now I get to go up a pole and work for a while. Between finger thaws I am getting some RR stuff done. Ha! Darn. It's time to get up that pole.


It could be a lot worse. Sitting inside waiting for that government check to come in so I could see which bills I can't pay and which government agency is going to pickup up that bill that doesn't get paid. GRIN! I get a look at this on a daily basis with some of our customers. Working inside their homes as they live gives one some insight on what life they are enjoying! Mine sometimes gets hot, cold yet it's all worth it come payday.

Thinking of Driving a 18 wheeler on ice all day long. Those days are hard enough in a 3/4 ton service truck with no 4 wheel drive. I am glad when I get home on days like those. my brother inlaw and Dan face those icy days all day long more than we want. Yet it pays the bills and life rolls on.

Weather from a window inside looking out is so much easier to go cool. Weather from the outside looking in is grin and bear it. 40 years of this stuff. Aaahhh..in 2 years and a few months It will be looking out and saying...I hope that idiot out there gets back in his truck and warms up more often. HA!

That's how I feel after 27 in the Navy and 17 in education. It's a young(er) man's game, and I'll be glad to turn the reins over to someone else at the end of this school year. Hopefully in better shape than when I picked up the reins on the side of the road. And then I'll be getting into my truck more often and using the new camera I bought. Even in the snow.

It is an interesting world we live in. There are still hard working young fellows coming up, but there are an awful lot of lazy ones too. I need to find more guys for the electrical company. Just seems like anyone worth their salt already has a job, and even then it's not a guarantee they're a good worker either. Hired a guy who had worked for me years ago, but had let him go when we got slow back in 2015. He was better four years ago than he is now... I've encouraged him to work hard. I've talked about what is expected multiple times, but still no improvement since I rehired him (at a higher rate than he was before). So off I go to meet him and the guy he got hired on with him this morning with their checks to say adios. I can't afford to throw money away.

GRIN! I get a kick out of our Corp Boss's. They don't know how to do the work we do. Then when we put in a request for some help on a job...get it done quick or call me back in 30 minutes or some statement of acknowledgement of they don't' have a clue on what we are doing. GRIN! Then we get a barrage of emails and texts telling us we got a red flag for this and that. I just look at them for who they are. A puppet in a play that is preforming badly.


Big Corporations are the worst for this. Yet when I was framing houses at 17 I found our framing crew of 2 crews was being cheated by the boss and his crew by showing up late to the job sometimes a hour and going home early and had been doing it for quite a while. I quit the next day and went to work for another "Christian" builder that was not much different than the one I left. We need Jesus on all the time. I wished I was so good I could get by with out his help but isn't that the human issue. So when I goof. I look up and say Lord help me a pitiful sinner.


Working hard has always been my issue. Former bosses have told me I do the work of several. Yet it never got me a head for it. Always jealous folk and pay never matched the increase in productivity. In my older age I just laugh at that foolishness and do what is expected of me. Ok a bit better than that or my conscious will bother me. HA!

I homeschooled my second grand-daughter for 6th grade, and we had a great time doing it. Then she went back into the public school system the next two years and averaged a D during that time. Last summer I had a motivational sit-down with her, telling her that going to school happened to be her job for now and that I was going to pay her each quarter if she produced. Only for this freshman year, and it would go into her college fund. (Her dad told me that it wouldn't work.)

3.334 average.
Very Happy
