Greetings Guys and gals:
This morning there was a death in my shop. A long-time companion of mine died at approximently 9:00 a.m.
No warning was given, or no advance indications that something was wrong. My companion just died!!
I had no idea what brought it on. Oh crap—what am I gonna do? I live so far from anywhere I didn’t know who to call. My first thought was “he’s so young, only 24 years old. That’s too young to die like that. I couldn’t think straight, and my mind was wondering. What can I do? Then I had a thought: I’m no doctor, but I might be able to help with the situtation. If I can open up his head and remove some of the pressure, there might be a chance. So I went to work. I grabbed what I thought I needed to do the job. Tools. But which ones? I didn’t have a clue, but something had to be done—- quick!! So I removed a vital part of the head and exposed the brain. It looked nasty in there, but I continued to operate. When I got to where I could see inside the brain, then I thought—air—- stand back and give room for air !!!! The only air I could think of was my airhose on the compressor. I might still have time to save my old friend. So I commenced to blowing, hoping to revive said companion. There’s still time—I know there is ! He’ll make it, I just know he will.
