    I work on ATM Cash Machines all day long in this Texas heat. Pays good and I've been doing it for 11 years now. I've been thinking about getting into another career.... maybe get into what this guy does

    I manage an Electronics Testing Laboratory for a Department of Defense Agency. We functional test electronics devices that are a part of military weapons systems. Typically; aircraft parts, ship, sub and carrier parts and land based vehicle parts as well. There is a huge amount for fraud in the spare and repair parts business for the military.

    Huh? My story? Okay. It was never easy for me. I was born a poor black child.

    Actually, I work for the guv'mint too...

    ..I burn your tax dollars tooling around in this:

    Got about 6 more years before I can retire & figure out what I wanna do when I grow up!:D

    Before FSU & USAF, I was a heavy equipment mechanic, auto mechanic at a cheap garage, & did some electronics/avionics work...

    i dont know what brought all this on , but im damned impressed with a lot of the responses. seems like someone should do a tally on the numbers of engineers, managers , machinists (especially that one welding lady machinist... thats a turn on...reoww), carpenters, chefs, plumbers, teachers, designers, steam fitters, and any ne'er do wells that we love so much. it really kind of shows what level of sophistication this hobby/lifestyle brings.

    good job to all of you and keep on making the hamb as great as it is.

    Work as the head of U.S. Marketing for a Fortune 500 Chemical Company. We sell alot of the agricultural products and seeds that Plowboy works with everyday.
    Thought I would do this for a few years out of college and go back to the family business, never made it. Put in way to many hours, take too many flights, and spend too many nights away from my daughters, wife, and hot rod. Looking forward to retirement and working on all the projects in my head.

    Please give me a ride in your nice airplane!!! Please, please, please. Back in the '70's when I was drafted out of college, I chose to enlist in the Err Farce, sorry Air Force. I worked Electronic Sensors: IR, Side Looking Radar, Laser Target Designators, etc. My favorite airplane was the AC-130-A/E. I never got to ride in one or the other ones, the RF-4C.
    Seriously, I appreciate what you and the other guys and gals who serve do to protect us. Thanks for your service.

    I've got the job I've been workin' for all my life. I'm retired and I did it well before 60. I don't do shit...but I've got all day to get 'er done. Spent the last year or so, building a shop in my backyard -- me and the shop are now co-dependent.
