With the heavy snow here and the scary “winter vortex” (part two) coming our way, I’d like to mention our awesome Regency Maintenance Departments for special praise.
One of the defining and characteristic hallmarks of our beloved Regency Founder is his attention to detail. Nothing is overlooked, forgotten about, or skipped.
(In fact, I met Mr. Gross at Regency Park this morning and he was inquiring about and following up on minutia of day to day activities from weeks ago! He misses nary a thing.)
This commitment and attention to detail is evident in the superb staff of the Regency Maintenance departments! It isn’t easy to maintain our stellar facilities which comprise sprawling facilities of multiple buildings and acreage and many hundreds of beds!
However, they do yeoman’s work and look after every single detail to upkeep and maintain our gorgeous facilities.
You know, last night, I had to replace a small part of our forced hot air furnace at home. When the house started to freeze, I realized that the ‘ignition plug’ was kaput. Don’t ask me how I came to this conclusion, which was a feat unto itself! So I went to home depot to pick up a replacement part and $50 later I walked into the house determined to fix it on my own!
I was gonna show my Wife how I could handle maintenance around the house! No big deal right?
The minute I opened everything up, I knew I was in way over my head!
Screws and wires protruding from everywhere and I had no clue as to where I put what? The diagram which accompanied the device wasn’t much help either. I kept turning it around and around wondering if I was looking at it upside down. Ultimately, I discarded it, because it seems you need a degree in nuclear physics to make any sense of it.
So I puttered around for two hours with the thing, while wondering aloud what “all the extra screws were for?” My wife pointed out that nothing is “extra.” If the manufacturer spent money on the screws, then they are there to serve a function. Clearly, I had no idea what that function was.
Bottom line is that I got it done! I think she was more surprised than I was, but it did give me a new and heightened appreciation for what our maintenance staff does day in and day out!!
