    Default Last chance saloon

    Well that's it.
    Ive turned down probably my last chance to work on the lines 🙈
    Ive been offered a job with a good company on good money.... But not enough to tempt me back.
    Working for a telecoms company at present. I work all over Ireland " which is nice" still climbing masts daily etc.
    The overhead line company have the contract to refurbish a line ( which I was involved in the original building of as an apprentice ) F..k I'm getting old when that's happening .. 😱
    Anyway it would of ment being away from my wife and dog all week ( I'd miss the dog terribly 🐾&#128062 . So I turned it down.
    It was a lovely transmission job. Changing the rotten pylon steel first, then insulator changing , then re spacering.
    The type of work I love.
    So although I was offered nearly a third more money than I'm on now I decided I've worked away for toooooooooooo many years . So the last chance salon has closed its doors. But at least I chose to close them rather than them being closed for me. 👍👍👍
    IF IT WASN'T FOR BAD LUCK WE WOULD HAVE NO LUCK AT ALL. !

    Well Bren, as a fellow lineman that’s done lots of travelling, I think you made the right choice. Given the chance I would do the same thing. Yeah I know the work is great, but being home means so much more, especially for us older fellas . Good luck to ya! Rob
