    I am now a past chief and the views, opinions, and comments are mine and mine alone. I do not speak for any department or in any official capacity. Although, they would be smart to listen to me.

    I worked for years on the water side. Not on a drill rig but pulling turbine pumps out of the ground. I'm well versed in being smacked silly by a rogue bull tong that spun off the cathead.

    AHH HA! It's nice to see there are others out there that know what I am talking about. My shoulders still ache at the sight of a derrick full of pipe.
