Now you know

So, by proxy, you got your name from a stainless steel hospital bedpan--I bet a lot of thought went into that!  (Pun intended)
The above has nothing to do with any real  or imagined person(s).  Moreover, any referenced biped(s) simulating real or imagined persons--with a pulse or not--is coincidental, as far as you know.

I can't believe I didn't answer this sooner... A Wraith is an Evil-tempered ghost. In this case, One that also works as a Rad-tech! ;D Also a reference to the fate of the 9 kings of men consumed by evil power in Tolkiens "Lord of the Rings"  ;)

Well lets see.

Once upon a time, before I was married and had a kid, I used to have a nice little 1965 Ford Mustang coupe.  She was painted blue with white racing stripes.  Had a nice little V8 in her and horsepower to boot.  Decided to give her a name.  Her name was "Precious".

I got mine from working in brazil and getting paid 11 for 12 hours.The best part was no one knew anything about it until after they arrived in brazil and was a little late to turn around and back out.
It was funny how bartlett never told anyone about this while they were in the states.
Just my little tribute to them

North Anna, Fall 2007 outage, bungee cord rad rope at equipment hatch, I got distracted and didn't remove the "rope" while the containment coordinator and helpers were pushing out a B-25.  The box was almost all the way out the hatch when the "rope" popped over the top just as the containment coordinator raised his head.  He got smacked square on the chin by the plastic sign attached to the "rope".  Luckily there was only a little bit of blood.  My buddy Glenn Travor gave me the name.  BTW my first name is John.  Glenn drop me a line some time.

I'll refinish your floors,sell you tiger maple for a guitar, turn you a custom wooden pen,carve you a sign, or build you a cedar strip canoe. I can't walk slow enough to work DOE (yet), but am resigned to working outages until the economy picks up again.

Well, for those of you who know something about my current situation, here is my explination:
01, for one strike against me now, also the year I graduated HS,
Changeup, because I like baseball, and it represents the changes that I am making in my life after my little problem.  I used to just do whatever I felt like, and ran through life without looking where I was going, like a fastball.  Now I am doing the oposite, thus, a changeup.  Also, Baseball is my new hobby to take the place of my old, destructive (on a personal level) "hobby."

Let me think!!!!!!!

Oh I remember......I retired about 5 years ago and started working as a consultant.  Was licensed for ~25 years and my consulting work is centered around projects that need SRO experience.  Hence the name.
