After 43 years working for the same company, I paid my last visit to work today. As I have been working part time and on zero-hours, I submitted my final invoice, and handed in my computer and door card.
Truly the end of an era, and it’s a case of, “So Long, and thanks for all the fish.”
On the whole, I’ve had a lot of fun and intellectual challenges, worked with some great people, and seen some interesting places. I now have to get down to that modelling I never quite had time for!
My overseas work started with designs for the cross-drainage on the first motorway in the Hong Kong New Territories…..
And went on to look at drainage through much of Hong Kong…..
Widening out to irrigation and water resources in Thailand…..
And rivers in Indonesia….
The last 15 years included visits to pre-ISIS Syria, looking (believe it or not) at flooding and potential washout of gas pipelines…..
And in the mountains of Georgia (ex-Russian version.)
And that’s just the edited highlights!!! In the immortal words of the Grateful Dead, “What a Long Strange Trip It’s Been!”
