Just a great short story here. Today I was having my carpets cleaned by a great company, Las Vegas Carpet Cleaning, and the guy that was sent to my house to do the cleaning had a brand new Iphone 6s Plus. Really sharp looking screen and quick processor too. I had a droid from the stone ages so after playing with the carpet cleaning guys phone for a while I decided to drive over to the verizon store and pick me one up. Very happy with it and I have taken a ton of photos already. Make sure you get the 64gb one if you buy one. Anyway that’s my short and boring story but I am super excited so I thought I would share.
It was a sunny afternoon just like any other in July, but then the clouds started to roll in and the sky turned black. There was that old familiar rumble coming from the sky. Sparky and his mom were out walking on their way home from the park and the winds started to whip up.
“Where does lighting come from?” asked Sparky. “It seems so magical”.
“It is electricity” she said, “would you like to know more about electricity”?
Sparky definitely wanted to know more about it, but once they got home where they were safe from the electric storm. As soon as they were inside the house watching the lighting from inside Sparky said, “I’m ready to learn, mom”. Sparky’s mom continued first by telling him how he got
the nickname Sparky, beside the fact that his dad was an electrician who gave him the nickname.
“You see Sparky, when you were a little boy your dad was wiring our new home so we could have electricity. You were so eager to help and we were so busy working that we lost sight of what you were doing. You stuck a screw driver in an outlet and it gave you a spark. “That is when your dad (who owned Vegas Towing Service at that time) started calling you Sparky” mom said with a giggle.

For one thing guys i really had no clue what i was getting my self into when i decided to join the electrical brotherhood at 18 yrs old. Wow what a shock! LOL no pun intended!
The industry can be hard on younger and clueless guys like i was. Of course you get lots of ball busting and tricks played on you. My favorite was the ol’ sky hook line. Got me a few times actually (shhh).
If you have a tough skin and can take a beating you will survive. I did and i was skinny as a twig and wore glasses. Not the most macho lookin’ dude if ya’ know what i mean!
So persevered on through the gauntlet of shit. I started learning things that made me a bit more valuable and slowly but surely the verbal bashing tailed off. After a few years i was just one of the guys. I now had permission from the other guys to participate in the hazing of the new cadets that occasionally came through. We really saw it as a right of passage and a seniority thing.
This is where our adventure starts! I love wiring stuff. Anything really, if it goes whir or throws off sparks, it’s for me. I was raised by my Father who worked in the telephone industry back in Jersey. He has been grinding on that job for almost 43 years, WOW! Any way Dad always would teach me how telephones worked and what his job entailed. This lead me to taking a real liking to this field of work. My dad would always be messing around with old telephones he acquired through his work weeks and years. Continue reading →
