Deck Crane

... for Birdman's Top 25-

#3 LOVE the Work We Do!
I don't  know who said it, but it drives me now. IF you can't do the little things right, don't even think about tackling the BIG things in life.
 I 'got lucky'... 
My team is amazing! Donna helps me everyday with the little things and gives the confidence to go after the seemingly insurmountable. 

After an interview process went the other way, and the person hired failed to perform up to expectations and quit. My boss called me into his office and said to me, "Well, where do we go now?" My retort, "Has that gal we passed on been hired somewhere? I want that blonde!" Six months after her hire and impressive work, he  stopped by my room and said, "I'll never doubt you again, M-." Thank you Alexis!

Hossein, love you dearly. I've passed the Clan Stirling tartan tie on to you. Your zany sense of humor will take you far, along with your incredible enthusiasm for science. You guys added 10+ years to my career. 
Rob, you have no idea how fortunate you were when 'lady luck' tapped you on the shoulder.
I've talked about how I feel about luck before.
It visited me here.


  1. Still no idea... but the deck crane looks curious!

  2. what a nice post...love that crane!

  3. I think I have a direction now but it is probably the wrong way! ;-) Like this post too.

  4. From previous posts, I'd say your at least twice lucky - in love and work!

  5. "My room." "Science." I'm still guessing education.
