When I retired I had 5 managers, 4 supervisors and 3 consulting engineers reporting to me as part of my management team. One of those managers called me recently hoping I could answer a question for company lawyers as to when a particular microwave system was shut down because it had contract implications with multiple other utilities. I had the answer and he was happy for it! However, I’ve been thinking about work since then, only the good stuff (pre-management) and decided to look at some pictures. Here are a few that show the extreme contrast of Arizona, both are environments I once thrived in. There is one picture of guys from my old crew, the one on the far right, who had just retired from the Army than as a Ranger Sgt. Major, he’s the one who contacted me and is and has been in management for many years now, a very good man. Another picture taken atop a snow covered communications site, nearly every single one of those microwave dish antennas, I was the ‘top man’ on the tower, who pulled them into place and bolted them down. I have difficulty now kneeling down to clean the skimmer basket from my swimming pool…I clearly missed a chapter in the book of life because I wake up each morning wondering exactly what the heck has happened and how am I supposed to tie my shoe strings? Enjoy the pictures!
