    I suspect that the reason we don’t work together is because our brains work different. We can’t even do the dishes together. Our birth signs, personalities, and creativeness limits us to hanging wall paper together. It takes us about 6 months to agree on a particuler pattern, then another season to decide when we are going to hang it.
    We have been together for 40 years, have three great sons, and 7 grandchildren.
    Our eldest son works with me. We had our moments when we started, but I would be lost without him now.
    He dragged me kicking and screaming into the modern age of data collection. When I decided to buy a new edm, he suggested one with an on-board data collector. I made a deal with him; if he learned how to get the data into the collector, I would learn how to get it out.
    He and I do the research and field work. I do the calc’s and plan production. Recently, we introduced his two nearly grown children to the joys of field work.
