My 20-year-old son got a job! Today was his first day at an Aerospace plant. He will train as a machine operator. He learned to cut metal today. He also said the machine had a cool projector where he can check his precision. He has to make curved cuts. He can check the curvature of his piece by holding it up to the projector which also projects graph paper in the background. I am positive I am NOT explaining this correctly.
There are still many hurdles to overcome...but this is a step in the right direction. He still wants to take a welding class at the local Junior college.
After his initial training on the new job, he will be moved to the night shift (11 pm to 7:00 am) The welding class (at college) starts at 7:30 am and goes to 12:00 noon. Will he be able to do that? He'll have to try it and see. It would not be good to fall asleep while welding.
Since his insurance ran out the day before he started his job....I am now driving him to work, which takes about 30 minutes round trip. Then...I go to work. (After I take the youngest to school.) Needless to say, I'm up early in the morning. But soon he will make enough money to get his car back in working order.
Verse of the day: Matthew 9:26 Jesus looked at them intently and said, "Humanly speaking it is impossible. But with God all things are possible."
C. also said that an astronaut visited the plant today, and he came home with an autographed picture. (John L. Phillips). The company makes bearings that are used for the army, navy as well as the space program.
