Wondering about wild grapes

Wondering about work.

My favorite customer really needs my help.  This is upsetting to me at this time because helping him really interferes with my plans.  We have had a very long working relationship, and I am going to try to do as much of his work as possible.  He has helped me in the past, so I also feel that I owe him.  This may prevent me from seeing some old friends that I have not seen in almost 30 years and may never have the opportunity to see again.

Also, I do not have the right engineering programs on this lap-top and this lap-top has trouble running them anyway.  Don’t have my reference material or files.  This will take me 2 or 3 times as long as it should.

I am telling this to you because I want you to know that I will not take the time to write a blog for the next few days.  Tomorrow is a travel day and Saturday is c family reunion.  I know that in the near future when I get some time, I will have some new stuff for the blog.  Your patience is appreciated.

You all have a good day now, you hear?  And I will hurry back.


  1. Really am sorry your fun time is being interrupted by work. Had a thought, IF this customer is a long time customer and you know him. Surely he would understand that you are not at your office and should know you will do the job once you get back home.. Betcha he never quit his vacation to rush back to do a project.

  2. I've read about work and I've seen it from a distance. It's a dirty shame to be called back to work while on a vacation.

    However, I certainly understand long standing relationships that go beyond dollars and cents. You've got to do what you feel is right.

  3. ((( Your integrity speaks volumes )))

  4. I can certainly uanderstand taking care of a loyal customer. All the companies I worked for made a point of making sure I understood that I was nothing but a billable unit with no value for retention.
