    I'm retired, I was a fabricator/welder, trade show/ exhibit builder. It was the greatest job in my life time. I've left my mark in a great many museums through out the country.
    Some times I really miss that job, but I've got so many projects going on at home , I
    have no time for much else.

    I work at night as a maintenance mech for a potato chip bag co. By day I run my own business as a home repair specialest (handyman as you might say). I have lots of work and very little time for the family or the resto projects ( one car and one motorcycle). I'll collect parts and wait untill it slows down some and I have time for myself.
