Website:

I'm a 59 year old married man (34 yrs) and have two sons living at home, 20 ys old and 28 yrs old. My wife thinks I am smart when it comes to repairs around the house. I drove 18 wheelers for over 22 yrs until a work injury in 1997 ended that career. I am curently on disability. I like doing small projects around the house to keep me busy and have turned into a "pack Rat". I don't throw too much away as I will use it "later".I have a decent power tool collection and hand tool selection that i have aquired over the years. My philosophy is, give a lazy man a hard job, and he will find an easy way to do it. This has served my well over the years.

I have much respect for truck drivers, especially those who drove coast to coast on a weekly basis. I did this for 6 months with a former boyfriend who was trying to make enough money to go to law school. De-regulation of the industry made it really tough to make a dollar. I hope you get to enjoy being home now. Stay active and creative and you will find an inner happiness that will grow and conquer your gremlins.
