I knew my old boss' surname was Philips, but for the life of me I couldn't remember his Christian name.
24.03 – MU Podcast – Tomb 55
I remembered that my old boss used to be proud of telling us that he had some top position at UFO Queensland, so I put his surname and the UFO organization into the search engine and found out his first name was Colin.
I also found a You Tube with Colin giving a lecture from 2017 at that UFO organization, and I thought that he may have grown older in those 30 years since he gave me that six month job position at the Griffith University at Mt.Gravatt as a trainee groundsman/gardener, but he is still talking the same talk as back then pretty much.
|That's the Colin Philips (centre of screen) I remember|
And looking at that 2017 lecture I see he hasn't changed that much as far as his fact/fiction chats go.
He was a nice guy, but just a little too eccentric for my liking back in those days.
I remember him lecturing me about meat eating when I would come back to work at lunchtime with a Big Mac to eat in the staff canteen.
And I had to laugh when I would run into the permanent staff sneaking off to have a smoke and they would ask my not to tell Colin they smoked, as Colin frowned on smoking:-)
It was fun working with the guys at the University for six months mowing the footy fields and planting trees and making gardens, but when the government funded six months was up I moved on to bigger things like cleaning the toilets of a 14 story building in the CBD and then working in supermarkets and a Swedish furniture store for most of my life, until my life fell apart like the cheap Swedish crappy furniture that haunted my mortgage paying child rearing days.
But looking back over those working years I have to wonder if I would have changed a thing about those events that got me to where I am today, and I think ...
bloody oath I would:-)
