Arrow Gosh, you take a little trip....

and miss an entire thread. Just sat here and read from the beginning. WOW!!! As for those of you who protect us, educate us, heal us, feed us, provide utlities for us, and develop new ways to make our lives better, my hat is off to you all.

As for myself, I am semi-retired. After years of being a secretary at a high school, a trash company, for an attorney (in fact three attorneys), clerk for a U.S. Magistrate, travel agent, and department manager at Kmart.... I now act as companion and logistical escort (i.e. chauffer) for my aunt and my mother-in-law. Between dr. appts., drugstore, grocery store, and miscellaneous runs, I also clean our church building and do volunteer work.

David is currently a Building Mechanic, taking care of 23 of our church buildings in Eastern Kansas. He has a complete knowledge of plumbing, electrical, heating, and airconditioning; but yet I have a furnace with a irritating hum and a faucet that squeaks when I turn it off. He'd rather be working on the AS.

Just 3 years, 11 months and 1 day to retirement......

What I did for a living

Well, let's see, I spent 20 years in the USAF as a weather man. Observer, forecaster and then computer programmer. I retired from that in 1980 before it became a career and went to work for GE Aerospace as a computer programmer. Worked on classified projects for 17yrs. GE Aerospace was bought by Martin Marietta and then Lockheed and Martin merged so I retired from Lockheed Martin as Staff Senior Software Engineer at age 55. Moved to Florida and did some contract work as a software contractor for a couple of years. My forte is IBM Mainframe Assembler Language. Can you say "Dinosaur"? I knew you could. Contracts dried up in 2001 and even though I thought I was between jobs, I was actually fully retired.

I spend a lot of time working on our '78 31' Excella, fixin' and polishin' and travelin'. We go north in the summer to get out of the heat, humidity and hurricanes. We're Flamingos... the Florida version of snow birds.

It just doesn't get any better than this!!!

Hey, I was an IBM mainframe assembler language programmer too! I enjoy talking with college grads about this topic because they always look at me as if I'm some relic from times past. I guess the schools don't teach it any longer and the college grads view it as ancient history. Too funny...guess I'm showing my age now!

Many of my most successful friends and relatives have no college degree. A couple I know well are multi millionaires...and had no college at all.
I have two degrees and they've been good for me...but by no means make me any better equipped to handle the "world".

Assembler is a tough language!

What do you do?

I am an administrative assistant in a private college prep school for boys. I coordinate registration, parent's weekend, graduation events, assist in the recruiting of new faculty and take care of whatever walks in the door.

I also have a partnership in a pet sitting business called Pampered Pets. We take care of other folks pets when they are on vacation. We have cared for birds, fish, pigs, cows, as well as your normal cats and dogs. Sadly this cuts into my time in the Airstream, but I can be easily satisified with "driveway" camping trips too!

Hi yukionna,
I think we met at the Region 1 rally last year. Are you going to this years rally in Three Rivers?

It's a shame that assembler isn't on the curriculum. What Latin is to the Romance languages, Assembler is to computer languages. No matter what higher level language used, they all break down to assembler. It taught me one thing... No matter how complicated or impossible something seems, it can be broken down into small doable tasks.

I'm a pharmacist in Central New York state. I also own 3 pharmacies with my father. That means I get to be VP of advertising, VP of human resources, VP of accounting, manager of the physical plant, HIPAA compliance officer, chief scheduler, head recruiter, VP of inventory control, IT guy, government affairs specialist, customer service representative,logistics, supervising pharmacist, and the guy who makes sure the windows are washed and the garbage gets dumped. Actually, I delegate much of that, but when it hits the fan I am the one with whom the buck stops. Good thing I love what I do!


John

Most of my customers are 4 legged and come with their human owner. I have tried hard to get fired, but my wife insists I need to keep working. It is easier for her to keep tabs on me when I can't get away from work. And we are doing it for the Kids. I want them to finish College so I can be out of here and give them the business. I hope this summer we can hook up the trailer and get going.
I forgot to throw in my wife works another job for our medicial insurance. For our business she does the payroll for our 2 sons who work at the store and pays the business taxes, bakes dog cookies for our dog bakery.

I work as a Telecommunications Specialist for a major utility in N. Central Florida. I specialize in Motorola Smartzone/Smartnet two way radio systems and DataTac mobile data systems for the utility, county and city public safety and government.

Moved to Florida over a year ago to escape the harsh winters and lack of summer in Ohio. Raised peppers commercially for a hot sauce company, owned and operated a farm market with 15 acre vegetable farm, as well as being Telecommunications Manager for the county we resided in.

Not a millionaire YET.
