So to save food that was the reason

Hello John, I reside in Mustang, OK. so we are close neighbors. I too design and build high pressure equipment as well as other specialized equipment in a large manufacturing plant where I have been employed for almost 40 years. Spring is my favorite season and I see even the storm clouds in awesome beauty though they sometimes scare the heck out of me! I enjoy your work very much and look forward to reading more as time permits. George.
