It's about time.

Many of you can relate to Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" and what we do to follow our dreams.

Video Conference.

 Our Location today is Windsor, Ontario.

When you start working before most of the other people in the Plant it has its advantages. You don’t have to set up the Portable Welding Screen that would have to be moved every Five Minutes. There is however has a disadvantage. One person says you don’t need to weld that but the next person says you do. It also keeps me busy waiting for the Feedscrew mounted in the Plasma Transfer Arc to warm up.

As I mentioned in yesterday’s Blog the PTA seems to be discriminating against the Four to Five Inch Diameter Feedscrews. There are no issues with the larger or smaller units.

There was something different waiting for me this morning. Being that I don’t often leave exactly at the end of the shift there was a “Notice” waiting for me. The notice was about a Video Conference discussing the problems I’ve been having with the PTA not following the Lead-In Measurements.

The person I would end up talking to was Ted in Goshen, Indiana. I spoke with him the first week Alec was away on vacation in September then again on the American Thanksgiving. Using a Laptop out in the Plant allowed Mile, his daughter Tamara and myself to all be able to ask questions and hear the answers. I did most of the talking at our end but Tamara has some follow up pictures that Ted requested. He does believe there is a programming problem but will have to look at the Blueprints and the readings on the information entered to better understand it.

The Call came at 12:30, when our Plant normally takes their lunch break which meant less background noises to interrupt us. When break was over everyone worked on things that did not make lots of Noise. We signed off after an Hour. This could take some time to figure out since there are only Three such units in North America and our’s is the only one in Canada.

Because of the delay I did not bury the last of the Three Ten Foot Long Feedscrews until after 5:00. Luckily I had been able to give Kathy a “Heads-Up”. She was busy sorting things in our old Storage Unit at the time.

Of course, there as dessert.

There’s no place like home whether it’s a House, RV or Apartment and it felt good to relax. We had the Leftover Stir-Fry in Wraps for supper while watching the 6 o’clock Local News.

Have you ever tried to eat a clock?

It’s very time-consuming.
