Today I continue my quest in creating and posting one block a day of the fabulous That Town And Country Quilt by the lovely Susan-Claire Mayfield. This is day two hundred and seventy-six of that project.
My husband, Scott, worked treating water for the Town of Granby for 32 years. He was the operator when the water plant in Granby opened.
In the beginning, he was there day and night “becoming one” with the plant. We didn’t leave town for more than a day trip for 20 years so he could be available if the plant needed to talk to him.
There was an auto-dialer that would call our house if any sensor twitched when he wasn’t there. Then the phone would ring next to our bed and he would get up, get dressed and go to the plant to soothe whatever had ruffled its feathers.
The timing of these calls was never good and I consider myself lucky that we managed to conceive our third child.
He was very devoted to his job and the people of Granby. After he passed away the Town decided to name the water plant “The Scott Holley Building”.
I think he would not have liked the fuss about him, but it was an honor for me and his family.
