Rigging Up For A Cure

Rig #4, otherwise known as "The Pink Rig" went to work this week. It has taken so long for this to come together. My Honey...whose identity is no longer secret if you watch the news clip-LOL...has put a huge amount of effort and money into this project. Two years and nearly two million dollars. But it is something that he has believed in all along.

Channel 11


Williams Production has always been a strong supporter of the Pink Rig, it just so happened that the very week MH took delivery of this unit in '09, the oil/gass fields nearly ceased production. While the unit could have picked up a job here and there, the whole point was to put it to work and keep it working to make as much money as possible for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Irregardless of whether the unit ever worked a day, the foundation was going to collect $10,000. MH was just hoping to have that figure closer to $40,000.



**On a personal note...I'm doing a happy dance. I hired a fabulous lady for the office. She will be taking that over on March 8th. I'll probably spend a couple of days helping her get oriented, but she has so much experience, I don't think she is going to need me hanging around after that. I'll just pop in once and awhile to say Hi! I've enjoyed working in the office, but man oh man, am I ready to get back to the horses. Ironically, this gal has a horse she needs started. Hmmm...might be I'll be getting back into taking in outside horses.
