Filter, change oil, charge it with freon – regular service job.

For those overly curious… yes he has burned his beard a few times. The smell is quite unique.
Friday August 29th all is quiet and well around Bainbridge. A quiet cool breeze is blowing and the soothing sounds, reminiscent of birds chirping or raindrops on leaves, of 757 passenger planes taking off from Louis Armstrong International can be heard in the background. Laponica Refrigeration, located in Kenner right behind the airport, had recently hired their very own tolken black guy – Tony Buddah Brownie (his name has been distorted to protect his identity); this come to find out was a very good idea, because he nearly saved a life this faithful morning.
While sanding (slaving in the heat) a forklift Tony noticed our neighbor Jimmy running down the street towards a truck that had just tipped over. Tony jumped up on the side of the truck, pulled down the side window, and heroically helped the driver get out.
Jimmy was at the firetruck when I seen the truck tipped over and I still beat him running over there – Tony
According to Tony: when he had pulled the side window down the driver lamented, “I told him it was top heavy. I told him it was.” To which Tony quickly replied, “Don’t worry about the truck dude. How are you?”
The driver, with perhaps an exception to his pride, had only a few nicks/bruises and was otherwise in overall good health. First responders came very quickly and closed off the streets making it very difficult to go home… And that’s the latest at Bainbridge.
Our tech Dennis Lacey decided to get a hair cut the other day. Told him I’d like to see him go answer a service call from some nice old lady when the season starts to kick into high gear. We like to promote beards at Laponica (no one else has one), so we try to speak highly of it whenever we can. Thinking about it… maybe we should start looking into getting company ID tags…
Laponica Refrigeration is looking at buying a used forklift from one of our seafood plant customers. I, Ole Andreas Haug, have decided to name it The Rusty Skipper! At least that’s what I’m thinking right now. I will accept some other ideas.
