There I was, yesterday, sitting here working on a “paying” job and the phone rang. Holly Cow, it was my other customer who I hadn’t heard from for about a year. They have a new big project and wondered if I had the time to work on it. Time? I am retired, or at least I thought, and when you are retired you just can’t find time to work anything in, especially work – if you know what I mean. Well, I told them I would consider it if it didn’t interfere too much with some of the trips I had planned. Hey, don’t look down on me! I like to work now and then; it is actually quite enjoyable. It is like working out a puzzle, putting together electronic models and then details of all the parts. It is more fun than work, but when you have too much of it, it starts to feel like work. And you know that “work” is a bad four letter word.
Hay, maybe I can now afford more gasoline to put into the old motor-home and then be able to take more trips. Of course if I have time. Time, at my age, is more important than money. You youngens out there, just wait, you will see.
Speaking of work, I better get back at it. Called and talked to my customer before 07:00 this morning giving him a list of information that I need from him or his customer to complete the model. Once the model is done, the next step is to make a proposal drawing for my customer to send to his customer. (My customer owns a large fabrication shop) After approval, I will then do the fabrication drawings which include arrangements, assemblies, sub-assemblies, details, and BOM (Bill of Material).
You all have a nice day now, you hear?
