I don't own this space under my name. I should have leased it while I still could

Back in 1963 I was told not to wear hearing protect for just that reason. By 1990 their use was mandatory.

I was not entitled to a hard hat and not permitted to wear a soft one though I gave that rule a stuff ignoring. Lost count the number of times bashed my head but no damage to me or the equipment I hit.

Years later in Gibraltar in the caves I did wear a hard hat. The impact was quite severe especially in my neck in no due part to the extra height
