The Man Who Welded Two Elephants’ Asses

My father liked to say with a certain braggadocio, “I could weld two elephants’ asses together and make them stick.” Then he would add with a sly twinkle, “If you could make them stand still long enough.”

Here he is (left) with his helper Roy in the engine room of the Ice Plant , circa 1962.  I think Harold took this photo.
