I live in east Dallas...Licensed journeyman(SBCCI) electrician, industrial controls specialist, and professional electrical eng.instructor. Currently another Journeyman, two helpers, and myself are building a new control room, yard signalling, and metering for a large TXU electric switchyard (345KV) just east of Dallas. I got such a tickle out of "Barefoot on a Metal Ladder with a Drillmotor (in the swimming pool) I HAD to print it to take to work and show everyone (including all the linemen outside). Great laughs and I appreciate Sparky's sense of humor with "HOLY COW!!!" The TXU electrical sup's even redid that photo's caption with "Barefoot Burns"-Ladder Bandit". Last Friday, the TXU job superintendent fixed home-made Texas style deermeat chili in the biggest cast-iron skillet I've ever seen, over a propane burner in one of the work trailers. It was enough chili for ALL of us to have seconds, and then some. Being a working electrician never ceases to be a rewarding and often fun career.

Hi all:

I went through the Navy apprenticeship and finished a BSc and MSc along the way. I left a swell job (note sarcasm) as an electrical foreman at a steel mill south of Chicago to come down to sunny Georgia.

I currently work for the craziest cool company ever (we even have a car in trans-am series...look for the big green smiley)called automationdirect. I support VFD's and starters.

I have to say, this is by far the best forum I belong to. Thanks guys.

Carl

Hey Third Degree, Sounds like we are in the same area. I'm around I75 and Mockingbird.

Yeah, Wolfdog.........pretty close. I actually live around the Lakewood Shopping Center (where Abrams crosses Gaston). Hey, what did you think of this snow today? Been a mudpit in the new Forney switchyard for us lately....of course when we eventually finish it THEN they'll bring in and lay down about 20 thousand tons of gravel.

Hey Third Degree, you livin' over there with the doctors and lawyers in Lakewood. I'm right at Knox and Central.
Snow didn't bother me today. I was in a mechanical room running 2". I was dry and sort of warm.
