Default 45 Years in the Making

Today is my 45th year at the same job, thinking of retiring but the work is easy and it keeps me away from the wife.

45 Years? That's commitment!!
I probably wouldn't retire if I was a buss boy at Hooters either!!
Hey, I understand Big guy, I could make just about as much sitting at home as I do coming to the FD after 32 years.
So why do I keep coming here...??

I install internet equipment, outside plant, business, and cell towers. In 1973 when I started here in Vancouver. There were 10 people on the crew I was on, at that time I was cable splicing, did that for 30 years. than got into the equipment install. At one point in construction we had 42 people, today construction consists of just one employee....Me.

Hey, that's cool BRD.
Ok, I'll start the pesky questions...will my old Philco computer have faster internet if I push the wi-fi button on and connect the Ethernet cable, 2 sources, right?
