Perhaps nothing novel to say this time apart from today was my last day doing plumbing. I’ve been doing it for about twenty years. Most of that time was very heavy work. It was rare I got to show my crack whilst under a kitchen sink. Rather I was trying to engineer ways to remove 800 pound radiators from multi-million dollar homes without making any scratches. I was hand digging holes six feet deep to repair old sewer lines. Needless to say my back took the toll. Pain medicines and muscle relaxers have been the norm. It was just too much. Sadly, I never minded doing hard work. It was a challenge for me. If it’s hard, it’s worth doing.
So today was it. I cleaned out my company vehicle, loaded my tools up and went home. Now begins a new venture. A step of faith is under my foot. I will be attempting to speak to youth camps, colleges, churches, schools, wherever. It should be interesting to say the least.
