It's about time.

That’s Why and More.

 Our Location today is Windsor, Ontario.

Click on the pictures to enlarge.

First thing this morning, Mile wanted to know why I had not finished welding a Feedscrew that he had me put aside on Monday. When I reminded him of all the jobs done since and that it was a rebuild that had just arrived he went silent, before showing me another job he wanted me to do, after I finish another Auger.

Since I have been working here there is a word that I have gotten to dislike, “More”. I’ve been told to just edge a Flight and when I am certain there is excess material Mile tells me “More”. Then when the Machinist have to clean it up they ask, “Why so much weld?” Even though I now automatically add extra material I still heard that word today. It did not matter that the area was going to be recessed to hold a Bearing, it was again repeated.

By lunch I had caught up and was helping repair the Magnetic Sweeper for the janitor. My hands were black and took extra scrubbing to get clean.

When I spoke to Kathy at lunch she was having difficulty breathing because of the smoke from all the Wildfires across Canada.

Besides filling a Centering Hole on a Unit being shipped to the Customer, I helped buff it, then wrap it up before putting it in the Crate to be shipped.

At 3:15 Mile asked me again why I had not finished that Feedscrew from Monday. I put it on the Inspection Bench to do first thing in the morning.

With all the Rush-Hour Traffic, I didn’t arrive at Wyandotte Chiropractic Center until 4:15. When I Limped into the door Richard knew that I’d had a bad day. He had to do a lot more manipulating then normal. He also mentioned there would be good and bad days, some moving forward while others would be going the wrong way. It was after 5:00 when I Walked back to the Truck.

I picked up supper at Wendy’s. Kathy likes the Apple Pecan Salad while I like their Taco Salad. They were filling and healthy.

He’s hoping tomorrow is a better day.
