Roger Oettli who has helped me out in the shop all season left yesterday. He was a great asset to the shop and was always coming up with new ideas. Some of which I didn’t care for initially but turned out great. He would keep hounding me to try some new things until I finally gave in and they were a total success. His customer relationship was excellent and he could B.S. with the best of them. It didn’t show on the outside but Roger is dealing with a very serious illness. I wish him the best and look forward to seeing him next Spring.
Art took the van (which is rigged up with a bed and all the comforts of home) and his boat on a R&D trip to the Missouri. I’ve been waiting for a call from him to get a report. Who knows, with that van and his boat in tow by now he may be in Idaho or Washington steelhead fishing.
