Along with Margie, and John I got to see my brother, Lowell, who was on his university spring break.
He is a proud uncle. He also says babies are ‘chick magnets’ so he held John as much as possible when we were out.
Lowell goes to Webb Institute, a shipbuilding school, and he has been spending his internships working in oil and gas shipping. Lowell has done two internships in Houston, and will be doing a third this summer. He took me to one of the places he worked in Galveston on Saturday afternoon. His employer in Galveston was a business that repairs offshore oil rigs like this one.
There was also a lot of other cool stuff in the yard, like this reel for laying sea floor cables.
He was really excited about this ship – for a lot of design features that he was rambling on and on about. I just think it is a cool looking boat – and he asked me to take a picture of it.
It was good to see you Lowell – I hope to visit you in New York next year before you graduate!
