Hi; Sorry for our lose... Sorry I've been out of touch for so long...! A refresher; I worked for 'Vanskike Security Company' in Galveston at the same time I worked as the night manager of 'Gunsmoke'. I lived in Galveston with my father (Richard Cobb), in the summers, starting in 1968. The last time I spent time with dad, I came down, found work with V.S.Co. and when I got on at Gunsmoke I brought down my wife Rosalie (Woodworth). Old Harry... LOL... As soon as my wife got in town, put me on that old Work Barge for 10 days and nights... That was wild! I worked closely with Nancy... Last we spoke was the last time I proofed my resume. It would have fit the timeline as I remember. My hurt goes out to all close to Nancy. And I feel the loss too...! believe me! So, I remember some of the best years of my life!!! Over the long run, I should in Galveston. Running that Switch Board for the Security System was a trip back in the early 1980s...! Nancy drilled me till I could do it in my sleep, LOL then docked me for room and board, when she caught me asleep... LOL... O, God... Those were the times... ... Now, down to why I am once again proofing my resume; I am now retired @ 62, and looking for places to go to escape the BRRR! Back home again is just such a place, but only if there are still memories of me. Mostly, the reason I've been gone so long is due to, living my life for me wifes' family... it has been good. So... If anyone there still remembers me, I'd sure love to spend a winter there... or more. I'll be looking for some work (ON THE SIDE). Or we may go to Rosalie's brothers in Ocala, Florida.
