GOOD TO THE LAST DROP ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


It was an "Elevator Emergency" this morning at 7th and Montana as Amtech Jeff's radio crackled to life and his colleague, Robert, called him to the scene of an Elevator Repair Job at the corner of Sunset and Pacific Coast Highway. Don't ask me what constitutes an "Elevator Emergency," but when Robert calls, you just know something major must be going down. Four months ago, that "something major" turned out to be Robert, himself, when he "inadvertently" dove head-first from the top of a cliff at the Kern River into a shallow pool of water below. "It was terrible," said Jeff, "He broke his neck, dislocated his head, slipped into a coma and nearly drowned ... all on the 17th anniversary of the day doctors installed a Metal Plate in his head." Amazingly, Robert lived to tell the tale and is already back at work in the Elevator Repair Business. If that's not tempting fate, what is ...?!?
