Three Steps Back

      The Third Ward, Newark, New Jersey. I’m not from there, legends are legends, myths are myths. Asbury Park was a day trip from the third ward, but Long Branch was closer. Before there was a train to Long Branch from the city there was a boat to Long Branch. 

       Longy had two armored trucks that took booze from the beach back north legend has it, but like The Chin, nobody wanted to talk about him. Business was business.  

        Prohibition failed, but successfully…

What It Isn’t

       If I can just hang on until 2022 I’ll have fifty years of field work in. I’ve winched my hours down, and I’m feeling good. The odds are still crappy but I’ve managed to get this far. Being fearlessly optimistic has helped. I wasn’t born this way; I have to work at it. I practice fearless optimism.

        I don’t teach fearless optimism, or preach fearless optimism. I work at being fearlessly optimistic. I’m not consuming as programmed. I don’t buy myths, legends or the loads…

      I enjoyed HR, or the idea of HR, even before I was learning how to run the Troxler Nuclear density testing device...with the rest of the civil engineering trainees on the OCMT field management team. 

       I enjoyed HR because HR had moved me over to civil and given me a raise to nearly three dollars an hour. I did not really enjoy running the Troxler machine in the field, but I was a field guy, and someone had to measure compaction... 

       I did not enjoy Civil…

Knight Stands

      1976 Pasadena, Texas. Three of us were renting from my former boss, Valdis, and driving to Channelview in my 69’ LTD five days a week. The band leader was Al Leone, and the drummer was Michael Craig Step. I was the management trainee and they were print boy and gopher on the 2.2 billion dollar chemical lobotomy we were building to drain into the San Jaciento River basin. 

       Valdis played the accordion, and I had a Marine Band harp that I blew enthusiastically but without a…
