Which one of you Wankers live in N. England?
Good to see you have a firm grip of the language. :-)
I thought you were going to retire to Nevada?
So did I. I even forgot I applied for this job. It came out of nowhere.
I forgot all about even applying for it.
I must of applied when I was deployed in AFG.
I told them yea Id take the job but I need to know before Apr1 cuz Im due to retire.
When I got the first phone call (13 Mar) asking if I was still interested I told the guy that they would have to make their decision before then so I can pull back my retirement. Then monday I get a email asking If I would accept a tentative job in huntingdon England. I told the family, I thought about it and accepted it.
My 16 y.o. daughter (calm down boys I got a big bat I carry) has been talking about wanting to go there for 2 or 3 years, my son who is a excellent (brilliant in english terms) football player (soccer) has been wanting to go there and try his luck. His trainer here has connections there and will try to get him a look at.
So I took everything in consideration and accepted it.
I think I got a handle on the language, lets see
"Hey Keep how about a effin pint over here and one for me new mate"
"Bullocks the bloody reds lost to that russian team again "chelsinski"
"Bloody Ref screwed us on that call, effin wanker, go back to the coca cola league ya piker
So I think Im coming right along with my communications skills ,
Im sure they will get fine tuned after I get to know the guys at the local pub, lumber yard and tool store.
Seriously my only concern is shop space. Im going to be looking for a garage , preferably a 2 car.
Im going to sell my stationary tools to a good friend of mine and take my festools with my. Im guess I would not need a table saw, jointer, big router table etc anymore. I havent used mine since I started using the festool system. I am going to get the CMS (one with all the attachments ) and the OF2200 here before I go and ship them over.
I can pick up the centering ring for it there along with the TS55 / jig saw belt sander and module there. Ive been considering getting the TS75 module and leave it in the module just in case I have to cut some thicker wood.
But to be honest, my wood working will be playing second fiddle to traveling and seeing the country. I think its a excellent opportunity for my kids and wife, to see all that history there. We are so deeply tied with the UK in our history and they will never have a chance to get over there in there entire lives to actually send time enjoying the country and culture. Plus being so close to Scottand, Ireland, Wales , Germany, France, Austria, Chech Republic etc. Im really excited about it.
I havent been there since the 70s. Germany was divided, I looked over the wall into East Berlin, Now we can go visit it.
Im hopeing nothing happens to screw this up. Its like a dream to me.
