Meet Terry and Kevin.
These UT facilities guys are the doppelgänger of another duo from my former life: Jim and Don.
Jim and Don work in the machine shop at the Knoxville News Sentinel and they're my good friends. They are the kings of breakfast and have held feasts in the machine shop that drew the entire building.
I noticed Terry and Kevin shortly after I came to UT last year. I would always wave or say hi to them. They work together and like Jim and Don, you rarely see one without the other.
I decided I wanted to get to know them because they reminded me of my beloved friends so I chat them up every chance I get.
Terry has been at UT for 29 years and enjoys his work. Kevin has worked there five years. He seems like an all-around nice guy. (Don has worked at the newspaper for 40 years and plans to retire at the end of the year. Jim has worked there 12 years.)
I look forward to getting to know Terry and Kevin better.
