troubled trip to Puerto Rico in 1977. See more below.
This was an attempt to change his job
from Arkansas. Vern got scared
and lasted one night.
landing in San Juan, Vern's One day employer checked him into a hotel
in Old San Juan like that at right. "#1"
on map. The next stop was
company office where Vern received his car, "#2" on map. Show along hwy. 3 but
that is just a guess, "I have no idea where I was".A fellow engineer
then took him to see his 1st job site, "#3"
on map, SE of Airport. The driving trip was not intertaining, road
rules did not exist. The job site was a sub-division where the houses
had no glass that Vern could see, just window bars every where. The
engineer took me to his condo like that show below, "#4" on map. This would have been
great if I were single. The
work day ended, Vern was just dropped off, no employee welcoming, and
he drove to his hotel.
night was quite noisy, the tree frogs really sound off, all night long.
The decision was made, Vern was going home. He went straight to the
airport "#5" on map, called his one day employer, told him where the
car keys were and proceeded to board the plane back to the main land.
"Boy was that guy mad". Now on boarding the plane, his letter opener
and nail clippers were taken from him. They were watching out for
terrorists way back then. At the airport in Springfield, MO, there was
a very, very happy family reunion. The best part is, Vern got his job
back the next day.
