When the Going Gets Tough

I went to college to learn how to become a fire-and-brimstone preacher like my papa, but before I graduated I knew that my joy would never be found standing behind a pulpit, so I walked away from everything that I had been familiar with all my life and went in search of my destiny. That search led me to try selling cars and insurance, painting cars, forging parts for aircraft, laying brick in steamy hot steel furnaces, managing restaurants, pumping gasoline, machining extrusion dies, driving trucks, operating a steam shovel, and more. One of the first jobs I got when I moved to Cleveland, Ohio with my Greek wife was courtesy of my brother-in-law Angelo, who was part of a Greek painting crew. Until this day I have never told a living soul about my first day on that job. I looked certain death in the face and mustered up the kahunas to do what needed to be done regardless of the outcome. Angelo drove me downtown to a small Greek coffee shop where the crew met for a cup of coffee before heading out for the day's work. On my first day we were driven into a nearby steel mill and I was tasked with scraping paint from pipes high in the air over a roadway . . . Now, in hindsight it was probably only 25 or so feet in the air, but for a young boy who was accustomed to having at least one foot on the ground, this was daunting. I was handed my safety belt, without any instructions on how to use it . . . I only knew that if I didn't tie myself off correctly, and if I reached a bit further than I should have to scrape away chipped paint, I could easily fall to a very unforgiving pavement on the road below . . . And I had no idea how far I could stretch and bend without losing my balance . . . After climbing to the top with my tools and safety belt I was frozen with fear for what seemed like hours, but was probably only a couple of minutes. As a young man I had always assumed that I was invincible and could do anything anyone else could do, but now I was facing a challenge that I might not be the equal of. I finally started slowly, and as the day went on got more and more confident in what I really could do, and after a couple of weeks became a productive painter. The biggest compliment I have ever received in my working life came at the end of that summer. The Greek painting company that I was working for always got outside jobs, and that meant no jobs and no work for us in the winter. As fall was getting ready to yield to winter the atmosphere in the coffee shop before heading out to the jobs was also changing. Each day fewer and fewer men were needed . . . As the jobs were winding down for the year, the boss would look at one or more of the men and tell them that they wouldn't be needed any more this year. I was the only non-Greek worker in the group, and I was amazed as I watched good Greek men quietly leaving the coffee shop and going home while I stayed and worked with the smaller crew . . . Wow . . . I knew inside myself that after I conquered my fear of heights that first day I had purposefully learned the craft and worked my butt off to do a good job, but the unspoken compliment of giving me more working days that year than some Greek men who had worked for many years was the best compliment that I have ever received from a boss. I was reminded of those days as I watched William Gargan on his first day in the lumber camp trying to climb a tall tree with a long leather loop. The independent Canadian film producer had his cameras on Vancouver Island, British Columbia when a huge forest fire broke out, and was quick to grab great video of the fire. He then built this great wilderness logging adventure story around that fire, with Irish men tougher than nails, and one pretty girl who wasn't so soft herself. Ladies, if you are looking for a dainty soft love story to enjoy while you have your tea . . . This ain't it! . . . First released as "Fury and the Woman," this story is about tough men and women facing a tough wilderness and trying to wrestle the biggest lumber in the land into submission . . . and battle just as hard against each other . . . Their fists were made for fighting . . . . No matter if it is lumber or each other . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
