Interesting Work

The last few days I have been performing preventative maintenance on the air conditioning units of road maintenance asphalt equipment. Some might say it is dirty work. And it is dirty work and it is also new and interesting work. Learning new things is always interesting and fun. I is sort of figuring out how things work. This it the fun part. Here are some pictures:


  1. I've got to ask how you got the name Boompa. I am also a Boompa. It is the name my grandson calls me. I too have a blog at boompa53.blogspot.com.

  2. Our first grandchild had a hard time saying "grandpa". As I suspect many young children learning to speak have the same problem. One of my favorite movies when I was growing up was "Mr. Hobbs Takes a Vacation" with Jimmy Stewart and Maureen O'Hara. It is a funny family movie. In the movie Jimmy Stewart's, (Mr Hobbs) , grandson calls him Boompa. I taught my first grandchild to call me Boompa. I encouraged it.
    Today all my grandkids call me Boompa and even my kids occasionally call me Boompa. Have you seen the movie? Is your story similiar?
