It looks like I have a new summer job. I dropped into the tubing company I used to drive for, to see if they needed a driver, and they said no. But, they needed a tube patcher.

Now I've had some interesting jobs in my life, but this is different. I'll be working when they're running, Friday through Monday, so I get to be in on the action, just sitting in the back maintaining the tubes.

I've never patched a tube before but I used to live in Michael Cottens house, the keyboard player for the rock band The Tubes, when he was on the road. That counts!

Update: Ricky the owner just dropped by my house and we sealed the deal, start tomorrow. We also talked about a wine touring bus driving job that would require me to re-up my CDL. I said I'm on board.
