Anything I say here is only my opinion. Even if you understood what I said.... What I said may not even be what I meant.
I'm in yr 33 now and still enjoying it. The advances keep it interesting.
I started with an aptitude test in high school that showed I would do good at this trade. So two years of Vo-Tech in high school and two years of theroy
at the local university and some RSES training. I got my first job as a service man and told do not leave the job until it works. Man that made for some long days.
Anything is possible with God
Fortunately I keep my feathers numbered for just such an emergency

[QUOTE=ball a/c;2153672]I started working as a trim out man, putting on grills, stats, hooking up gas lines and starting up furnaces. The company did mostly RNC work. I would trim out four houses each day. This was in 1961.
I started our company in 1964.
All this said, Ive been working in this industry for 48 years.
WoW 48 years.
Do we have any 50yr or greater.
If you help others then you are a Success
24 years, not sure how that happened as I still feel like the young guy on the job.
Live each day like it is your last, for one day you will be right!
