I remember Rummy fondly from my time working with him at Black Butte Coal Company where he was a member of what we refered to as "the bull crew". His crew was responsible for getting equipment back in the dirt as soon as possible when it went down. I worked in the shop and later on the Dragline crew. One afternoon when we showed up on the pad at Dragline one which was down and they were preparing to do some boom work I was sent up to see if they needed any help. There was Rummy hanging on with one hand and swinging a 20 pound sledge hammer with the other trying to free a pin. Now Rummy had been fired the day before for sleeping or something minor I don't remember what. I said "hey I thought you were fired" and he looked at me and with a great big grin said "one day a zero the next a hero" and went right back to hammering on that pin. I have used that line myself over the last 30 past years.
