Crowning Achievement


Right up front.  Sorry about that pun for a title.   It’s the only thing we can come up with!  Dr. Peter Thompson is re-opening for dental business today, and we just want to say a few thank yous.

The Square in Portales is a historic old place, and it was time to deal with some of those historic old pipes.  With floors ripped open, and the alley and courtyard torn up, it was the perfect time for a complete remodel.   For weeks we’ve been working on the pipes outside, but for the past two weeks Field Day, Inc. has had crews working inside non-stop.

Plumbers, electricians, drywallers, trim carpenters, cabinet makers, window tinters, painters, plasterers, carpet layers, granite & marble installers, technicians who move dental equipment, Thompson’s office staff… they’ve all been in there working like army ants to squeeze this massive project into a two week time frame.  To those crews, as always, we thank you for your incredible effort, the long hours, and especially for working in cramped quarters with music playing and smiles on your faces – most of the time!

To the surrounding businesses and the pedestrians who had to walk on by… thank you from the bottom of our hearts.  Not only are you dealing with the highway being torn up, but you’ve also had to deal with all the trucks and trailers that have paraded around your area daily.  Construction is a nitty gritty business.  Your patience and understanding have been most appreciated!  (Hopefully the new drainage in the courtyard with that “amusement park ride” of a guttering system will treat you well for years to come.)

Peter and Micah Thompson and staff, we especially thank you.  You placed your livelihood and your patients’ comfort and care in our hands when you gave us this job.  We wish you all the best.  It’s been an honor to remodel your building… but are we ever glad to turn it back over to you!

    Isn’t that picture great? Sandy couldn’t resist snapping this photo of what we were calling “controlled chaos”.

    Alright enough with the fun, put your teeth back in and get back to work!

  6. Gary, I can see that you and Sandy make an outstanding team! All this talent and wisdom could only come from One!

    Surely, a treasure to all who know you personally and professionally!
