    Amen to that. I don't know what you did but it shows some class and some spine to step up. Welcome back and go shake your grampa's hand!

    Dad gum it!! I know you got TONS of more experience than me also!!! But, I just turned today for the better! Today started my new job with American Piping and Boiler Co. I'm going to learn to layout, fabricate and weld!!!! NO....MORE....GLASS....HIGHRISES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !! That's what I joined the "Ironworkers" Union anyway, yeah?! Well, maybe in 50 more years I can give YOU advice I turn 46 next month
    Burden1990,
    glad you are learning while you are still young! When you get to our age, you'll find out who are your friends and who are not (hopefully before 45!!!)

    Had a great day again today! Made a sign post, hammer drilled, welded caps on 3 pipes for the stands, put leveling nuts, leveled and grouted, then put the sign up. SWEET! Boss said "good job" today (which meant a lot to me) then said he'll see me tomorrow....SWEET!!! Then I get a phone call 3 hours later, I'm reassigned to another town to unload 9 containers to put up a building....Does somebody HATE me up there??? Could use all your prayers for a good day anyway Lots of jobs in Hawaii suck! Lot of people stressed, 'cause cost of living is so high. Average 1 bedroom condo: $1,500/month rent....
    Burden 1990, sorry for hijacking your thread! Just shows you, no matter how old you are, life is a challenge....

    thanks...Unloaded a container of steel for a 10,000 sq ft/ building we're putting up later. Part of the island we were in was really hot. I'm drained
    I'm step 5 and 1st time I'm doing this...feel bad, but boss understands so far...I told him I could install his sliding doors and caulk his bathroom
    I'm not late...
