I've posted before also, but according to my retirement countdown clock, I'll be doing nothing in 132 days, 8 hours and 29 minutes!

Air 16426

Fully retired now!
Never start anything before noon and always plan on being finished by 5.
I will never HAVE to be anywhere ever again!

Retired from the Feds as an auditor.

Canadian...don't have anything to do with the IRS and did not work for CRA, the Canadian equivalent.
Audited federal, provincial and private pension plans to ensure compliance with Parliamentary legislation.

Rogue auditor, Legal Dept. hated me.

Always put the client/person (not a file to me) before the legislation. Fought constantly to have the antiquated legislation amended, especially WW2 widows.

I am a born and bred Airforce Brat. Moved every 2-3 years. Canada, Europe etc. Lived in Germany, have seen the ravages of war.

The WWII widows, broke my heart, so many were never legally married, it was War Time. Many couples had numerous children and when the husband died, she could not provide a marriage certificate. She was ashamed, how terrible is that? and did not want her children to know. Gave up all rights to a pension, in my opinon, she was fully entitled to.

May be retired, but I haven't given up!

I had this ason my wallpaper at work when one of the CO'S saw it and I almost got fired. He didn't think it was funny.

Also FYI on weekend of October 5, 2008 several of us are meeting at Pecatonic County Park Illinois for a mini Rally, approx 10 AS owners. You would be welcome. You could contact Flamingo Kid 1 or myself (Air tandem)
for more details.

Looking for a JOB!!!!

I have been looking for a job in education/administration/human service for the last year. I have a log with more than 90 application packages out!!!

You would think that someone with my background (20 years admininstrator/school counselor/teacher, with a CAGS, MA, BS and national certification as a CRC) would have NO trouble finding work.

SURPRISE!!! When you hit 50 employers don't want you. Why not when they can hire a first year educator fresh out of school for half what I am worth.

So much for having highly qualified educators working with kids.

If anyone has a lead in the state of Connecticut, PLEASE pm me and I will forward my resume!

Sir Logan Foxhall, OAP, OJP, NAC, NCC, CL1, PS1, PJ1, CGC
Sir Blaze Foxhall, Let the Games Begin!!!

The more I try to understand people, the better I like my dog.

I am a counselor, teacher, preacher, parent, custodian, nurse, care giver, auditor, mentor, monitor, traffic cop, cheer leader, recruiter, number cruncher and anything else that I need to be. Actually, I am the luckiest man in the world. I get 450 hugs and "I love you's" every morning. as I am lucky enough to share my life with the most beautiful children God has ceated. Who else is so fortunate? I am an elementary school principal.

I'm an Art Director of Brand Licensing for a large publishing company. I've always loved fixing things from restoring three old homes, an old Thunderbird to Fender guitars and basses. Airstreams so far are the most fun and satisfying. I just ordered a bunch of stuff today from VTS including a polisher. Can't wait for the UPS man.

fascinating thread!

My current work is as a train dispatcher for a heavy freight short line railroad. I'm the only woman in the organization and all the guys have to get permission from me - which makes me Mother Louisa.

In former lives I've been the publisher of a boating magazine, yacht delivery captain an a bunch of other administrative jobs which are more or less all the same - only the jargon changes!

Currently, I am an office manager for an internet classified advertising agency ( In my previous life, I spent 23 years in some sort of healthcare related industry. I started as a phlebotomist (blood sucker), progressed through Firefighter/Medic, but busted up my knee. Continued in hospitals working in post-op, and eventually ended up in a doctors office expecting a slower pace (shocker - not a bit slower paced!) Now on hiatus from healthcare for three years but getting that little itch to return . Anyway having a blast talking to other Airstream owners at my current job. Not many looking to sell their beauties on our website, but looking to see if we have a site for parts! We do not yet have a parts site, but maybe some day in the future.

I am an Assistant Manager of a Grain Elevator in Central Illinois. Corn and soybean harvest is just about ready to get started around here. I am also a part time repair man on our old house, ol' Airtstream, and my lovely wife's Dance Studios. Don't have any kids yet, only been married for a couple of years. Do have a cute little dog, named Lucy, that accompanies us on our travels in our trailer....Oh yeah, can't forget about our little turtle named King Tut. He has traveled with us one time in our trailer, to Hot Springs, AR. Don't know if he liked it, he just 'looks' at me when I ask him.

Love the website, and hearing about all the fun people are having in their Airstreams.

Looking forward to seeing some of you on the road.
