64 SMT007 MAGAZINE I APRIL 2023 Editor's note: Indium Corporation's Ron Lasky continues this series of columns about Maggie Benson, a fictional character, to demonstrate continuous improvement and education in SMT assembly. In this episode, Sue and Andy have just returned to the Upper Valley of Vermont and are out for a walk. "It was really a great idea to take a break and walk through Woodstock," Sue said; Andy replied, "I really like the 1800s New England vibe." After 45 minutes of walking through this delightful village, they both felt the need for a treat, so Sue said, "Let's go to the Mountain Creamery and get some ice cream." After a short drive to this legendary restaurant, they were served their ice cream by Tina, who started up a conversation with her Calculating Operating Costs customers by asking, "What brings you two handsome youngsters to visit us?" Sue and Andy then regaled Tina with their stories of visiting Castellanos Electronics in Mexico and their need to take an afternoon date to Woodstock for a break. After they finished their frozen treat, Sue took out her phone and checked her email. Both were surprised that this modest restaurant had good Wi-Fi. "Hey, we agreed—no looking at phones on a date," Andy teased. Sue jokingly stuck her tongue out and they both laughed. "Whoa, we got an email from Professor Coleman," Sue said, feeling a little nervous. "Yikes," said Andy as he searched for the email on his phone as well. Maggie Benson's Journey by Dr. Ronald C.
