Tech Burns Self w/ Torch

Burnt by Torch

Don’t play with torches everyone! Our poor tech got scolded when he accidentally placed his hand in front of his acetylene torch. While, at the time, feeling a little stupid he was soon after seen sporting the wound and acting like a “bad ass”. Normally we wouldn’t condone such nonsense, but this is the same tech who sports an awesome beard… which by default covers all trespasses.

Laponica Employee Saves Truck Drivers Life

Laponica's token black guy - Tony Buddah Brownie - saves driver from unlikely death

Laponica’s token black guy – Tony Buddah Brownie – saves driver from unlikely death

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.

"Jimmy was at the firetruck when I seen the truck and I still beat him running over there," says Tony.

“Jimmy was at the firetruck when I seen the truck tipped over and I still beat him running over there,” says Tony.

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.

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.

Tech Goes Bald While Sporting Heck of a Beard!

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…

The Rusty Skipper

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.

Probably should have moved some of that junk out the way first, but here you can see the workings of Laponica’s homemade staircase. The creator and designer, Ragnar Haug, is a self taught expert in the field of carpentry and refrigeration.

Work completed. Expertly crafted and designed this staircase will help expedite the process of moving stuff up and down from the second floor. Great job everyone. Great job.

This staircase has been tested and approved for “temporary” use by a member of the Haug family. Additional support methods will be needed to “feel” completely safe as determined by members of the Haug family who’s opinion will be the ultimate judge.

Home made draft table

001 - Laponica Refrigeration Draft Table

At first we managed to create a draft table with a smaller computer side table for our techs to do paperwork. The techs have a chair, but whoever is drafting looks like they will have to use a step stool.

Nah, never mind. The owner, Ragnar Haug, is likely the one who will be using the draft table most often. Hence a nice expensive Rheem bar stool. Too bad the floor isn’t even.

The office is coming together slowly but surely.
