Default Sign

Today started out as as a rough day, a 3+ hour ride in a car to look at the boiler on job site. The car arrived to pick me up at 4 AM, between the pain drugs, the shoulder sling and my pleasant demeanor, the ride was somewhat uneventful. I did get to tell the head piping contractor to F.O., after a review of the job blueprints, the mechanical drawings of the boiler from the manufacturer and the sketches I made 4-5 months ago, they finally saw their error and will have the piping redone to specs by 11/21, for the walk through and the start up is to start the week of 11/28/16.

SO after my ride home, I found a box in the house, that came in the day's deliveries. Inside a box, with a plaque company logo, I found the following sign (See picture below). Because of my tool inventory levels and machine count, the shop was named The Machine Closet, by Cutter on the forum. On an aluminum plate, 18" x 12" is the sign stating "The Machine Closet", "Quality Metal Fabrication"

The sign will take up a prominent place of honor in the shop. The idea, that someone thinks your work has a quality to it, warms a GNAP's heart

I have no proof of who sent the sign, but I have my suspicions.

I do not have a clue, not even a suspicion.
However, I approve this message.

That's pretty awesome! I hope someday we get you(as well as Rod, Gerry, and a few others) to the Midwest for a gtg. I bet you're a real hoot around the campfire.
I believe the appropriate metaphor here involves a river of excrement and a Native American water vessel without any means of propulsion.
