Instead of starting up a new thread I thought I would use this one.
Sorry for not being on but I'm afraid that I'm going to be delayed even further. This is actually the first time I've even been on the internet in about a week.
On with what has been happening. Well my Dad came through the triple heart bypass but only to come across another issue, getting a pace maker
. He's still in the hospital, for how long I'm not sure and will go to a home for recovery and rehabilitation. The downside to this is the home that he will be staying at is the one my Mom was at before she passed. This is going to really put him down and I personally don't know how well he will deal with it.
I'm a city employee and work for the Water/Waste Water department, I know some of you already know this. We are a small group of seven guys that are trained in ALL areas that the job calls for. This ranges from repairing main breaks, public relations, lab work, you name it we seven do it. Unlike the bigger cities, we have to learn everything where they have the comfort of being divided into different departments, ie road crew, lab tech, data recording, chemical adjustment, maintenance etc. This is one of the reasons why guys like us seven are in such high demand in the US, that and the fact that our standards are more strict than most in the US.
This being said, our community is going through a huge project right now dealing with sewer separation ( $15million ) not to mention various smaller projects, clarifier upgrades ( that is running 3 weeks behind schedule ), replacement of meters at every house, just to mention a couple. We also had a 12" main break right outside our plant which shut the plant down for 6 hours until repaired then I had to stay all night to make sure everything would stay on course.
There is a horrible bug going around that somehow found it's way to me, I can usually avoid these things. This bug has taken me and another out of commission for two days leaving our group very light handed. I took off an extra day so as to not spread this virus and so did he. Usually I can work with the vomiting coming from both ends, if you know what I mean, but this thing put me in bed for over 40 hours with a high fever and extreme sweats. I was literally crawling to the bathroom in those desperate times. I'm not going to go into too much detail because it was absolutely disgusting, I do not wish this on anyone.
I noticed that I have some PMs at taleworlds but haven't looked at them yet, I will when I get the chance.
