  1. Columbia County you win again with this one. A short story. Way down south Texas never was there an empty chair in the welding classes. Though I did not participate it wasn’t hard to see the ones that did. The old flat bed trucks with a generator and a welding machine were soon parked in front of 3200 sq. ft. brick homes with expansive green lawns. This was in the ’60’s. 57 or so years later those welders are living a very comfortable retirement. Of course Georgia doesn’t have the oil fields that made a lot of this possible. But when all this pipe line stuff starts back up, pack those bags and be ready.
