    Howdy Fellers

    Have not seen most fo you in awhile. I kept gone for some time, I was upset about a couple things. Life is too short.

    So I am gonna start coming back around. If you'll have me. Some of you don't need to answer that.

    I don't know where we all left off. I have been down here in Dallas, TX for the last 18 months working supermarkets, some of you catch me on the other channel. I am leaving the markets again. 4 full days till I turn the truck in. Sound like a broken record hey? LOL. Hopefully this time it's gonna be long term. Just can't do it no more. Too many hours all the time. I am getting into chillers and boilers, and still with a couple toes in some reefer, but bigger.

    So whats new with youz guyz?

    Well, life is just life... I will be 60 this fall before the election... My Dad died last week... and HVAC work is a little better than last year.

    Above is the 'Readers Digest' version...

    How about you... tired of DFW heat yet? I grew up in Houston... While I love Texas... I can do without the summer temps.

    Hey Dow
    Glad to see you back. I was on hiatus for a while as well. I did grocery stores for many years and, while it's good work, the hours do get old. You wind up giving too much money to Uncle.

    Ole markettech followed his own path to here, I just happened to be at the place he was coming to. I wish him good luck, as I am leaving the place we are both at.

    So whats the frick up fellas. Anyone dead? Hows Business for you self employed guys? Ed, great to see you still alive up there. I am glad to hear it.

    We have been back to Detroit several times, although it's been awhile, we were up there in late fall and it was still not looking too good economics wise. We miss it. Spoke to my old boss once and he was still slow.

    Life is good for me. I came down here, worked my but off, just got burnt out, have to move on you know. I knew in the back of my mind that likely taking the job it would not be something I could do for a long time. I was right. I just knew it was just a thing I had to do at the time and get myself to a better spot. Very demanding. These boys will work you. I just could not sustain it for very much longer. I wish em luck.

    But I am excited about the new job. I am gonna go show these hvac guys how the real fuggers do this. LOL. Seriously. I got so much to learn. I am guessing the next few years will be some real hard work to get up to muster. I have been reading the chillers forum the last several weeks and I am thinking, "holy crap, what did I get myself into". Yikes.

    Life is fantastic. Trying to quit the cigs again. Man I wish i could beat this. I am going to the gym for the first time in years this evening. I hope I don't die of a heart attack on the bike. I figure I need to start occupying my time, the new job will not be as many hours, so getting more healthy again might be a good way to transition and not feel so jumpy and bored. I am out of shape.
