OLD ELECTRICIANS never die, they just do it until it Hertz

OLD ELECTRICIANS never die, they just lose contact

Old Electricians never die, they just lose their charge

Old Electricians never die, they just go through a "controlled power-down".

I'll turn 60 in a couple of months and I'm starting to feel it. But I'm still holding a "charge".

me too, smurf!..i can still pull wire with the best of 'em, it just takes a little longer to "recuperate", afterwards.
and the bundles of conduit seem to get heavier, every year.

I can relate on that recovery period, Gramps. The other day a buddy and I ran 265ft of 2in. pvc, pulled 3-2/0's and #2 in it and made up three splices on some shorter runs from the previous day. We put in 12 hours that day and it took me all weekend to recuperate fully.

Old electricians never die. They just blow their fuses.
