I grew up in northern Utah. Logan, home of Utah State University. Real nice place and not very big [not then anyway]. Right out of high school I went to work for a heating plumbing company welding gas line and working with sheet metal. Moved to Wyoming in my mid 20’s and I was working in the oilfield. I was a welder – which is somebody that fixes and repairs, builds and fabricates, installs wellheads, and whole lot more. Now, my wife and I are raising two grandkids, Kashus age 7 and Elijah age 5. I love Wyoming, with all the mountains, fishing and hunting and a whole lot of wide open.
This week has been challenging. I think there are a lot of others that feel the same way. Trying to keep up with the homework and making the “shift” happen. You know, subby. Tell subby often enough and and he will agree with you. It hasn’t snowed here yet, but it’s coming; and I have been getting winterized.
Remember to get into the alliances and read “Compensation” 1X/week for 3 weeks. Not that you need a reminder from me, Rod. You’ve got this! 🙂
Hey, Rod! WOW!! You being a welder in the oilfields is one tough job. I was going to be a welder until I discovered how difficult it was to make a decent weld. Thanks for sharing, and good to know more about you!
Thank you Rod. I have been getting winterized. Take this time to reprogram subby and bloom in the spring!
So nice to meet you, Rod! What an amazing life of service you have had.
