Some people would say that one should never reminisce about these times as they only serve to bring sorrow. I would have agreed in the beginning yet after all these years I look back on those times with joy knowing that I was at least given the opportunity to spend some great times with a great group of guys.
As manager of the department I was always serious at work. The guys cracked up when they saw me dressed up cooking breakfast one morning. I remember one of them saying "he's nothing like he is in the office, he's nuts". I loved every minute of it.
