Worked for cabinet company after completing school.

Started my own remodelling business in my hometown. Specializing in kitchens and baths. Dust and my lungs made me change careers.

Two words that we were taught not to say or hear "Can't" and "Never".

Moved back WEST to work at collage helping instuctors at a trade school. Welding,Electrical, Millwright. This ended up being a (BIG JOKE). Northern Lakes Collage is a FARCE !
Now I have moved back EAST(2800 miles) to live with family and once again be with grandkids. All my tools stayed out west, no place here to put them. All these moves I ran out of cash. Today I wake up, go to work for minimum money, come home and sleep ! RETIREMENT ....BAH ! A man NEEDS his tools !
