I certainly didn't get bored traveling around aimlessly...we bought a new house, so I had to go back to full-time ~

It's all good...I love my house and the work, well...it's a job, don't know what else I'd do at this point ~

Next time, retirement (or semi-retirement) WILL stick ~

P.S. Anybody want to hire a professional rally planner?

I'm the Co-Manager at the local store. I've been with them for 13+ years, worked my way up. Are they perfect, no. But is any job/workplace? I've worked for worse places, and while I'd love to retire my aluminitus requires reguar cash infusions

It may not have come through, but I hope you could tell I was joking around.

A joke? Couldn't have been anything but so close on the heels of the Lay & Skilling verdicts. I smiled right away - thanks!

I was hoping I could get a straight person (before we found out the truth) so that I could head down the Enron path....and I could joke about the Great Pumpkin being an analyst that was bully on Enron, getting out just in time.....or something around the Great Pumpkin being a Great Lawyer....but alas.....Cameront120 was just a bit too straight.

Congrats Cameront120.

That's funny to me on a couple of different levels.

A living....

Hi,

I found your thread today of "what do you do for a living" ~ has been very interesting reading!

I am a retired teacher. Secondary and Community College. I taught computer applications and accounting. Before computers I started teaching on manual typewriters... so I went through the whole change! Last term I went back to work and taught a couple of classes to help pay for the restoration of our 1963 Bambi. (I bought it so....) I have taught online and hope to pick up another online class now and then, it is a great way to earn a little extra and still get to be home or wherever...

I also keep very busy with family genealogy ~ love that stuff!

Mrs. NorCal Bambi (traveling in S Tardis)

I'm a biologist - I work mainly with spiders and mites for a living. But my true love is shopping... too bad I can't get paid for that heh heh...

My hubby owns a commercial flooring company. Have to say he's impressed with the floor of the CCD we're about to purchase so thankfully we won't be replacing it with something that was left over from the airport renovation!

Neat to read about others' occupations though.

Cheers!
Michelle

I've been a carpenter for almost 20 years. I've built many houses and have done many remodels. I also build furniture (etc) on the side for extra $$. Woodworking is life for me. That and our Airstream!! I think that is what sealed the deal when I bought it - our '65 has REAL walnut cabinets and I couldn't wait to rebuild/refinish them. I'd just love to find a gutted AS in otherwise good condition and just go crazy making new cabinetry out of some neat old wood. Wormy Chestnut, Wormy Maple......I dunno, something cool and appropriate for the trailer. So many ideas........ Anyway, I keep telling the wife it's NOT an obsession, but apparently she thinks different. (in fact, she has been after me to go apply for a position at AS since we're only 35 mi. away) Wouldn't it be great if someday I could reply to this thread as an Airstream employee! --dave
