A Blonde Moment

So I got this song stuck in my head this afternoon.

"I feel the earth. move. under my feet."

Over and over that line. Hmm haven't thought of that song in a coons age. Wonder why.

Then I kinda notice that I feel the earth move. There is this constant banging....kinda like what you hear at night in a cheap hotel when the neighbors are, well, uh, busy. Yeah - that sound....only in slow motion and really, really loud.



Oh Yeah! I work in a forging plant. All day long steel is heated in furnaces then put in these really big machines that slam down and form parts. Kinda like heavy duty cookie cutting.

No wonder the earth moves......

Oh, is that what they call that now...forging? And they have plants for that? Wow, I've really been out of it for awhile!

How long did it take you to notice that?

I have been in the business to long cause the first thing I thought of was "well Tammi, your in a plant, gotta be one of those big machines"

So if call and you don't answer the phone, it's because you're busy forging? ;-)

She's only just moved and she's already forging with the people she works with? Wow.
