    Right now! Building Racing Cars in China for their local market.
    When this contract finishes, I'll persue a new career as a "swimwear fashion critic" at our local beaches

    Self-employed, own a Sunoco gas station with a 3 bay service garage. I'm almost 67 and would like to retire but can't afford to yet. My health is still good so I really don't mind working a while longer.

    Last 28 yrs. at a refinery working in operations. Hey Jethro does the guy still have the car bodies sitting up on earth mover tires, out on the edge of town? Looked like monster trucks. (69 camaro and can't remember the other) I flew into Kamloops 20 yrs. ago to catch a bus to Weigele's in Blue River to go helicopter snowboarding. Y'all sure live in some beautiful country.

    Hey Black Stude,
    No the monsters are gone, that was a mud pit for mud bogs and mud drags.....good fun!
    Weigeles is a top notch operation. I've never done the helicopter skiing thing but people from all over the world go there like yourself.
    Yeah we live in some nice country but I'm just about done with winter though, wanna trade weather for December to March?
    Take care!

    Water Plant Operator. Almost impossible to be laid off.You would have to be the stupidist bastard in the world to get yourself fired from this great job.Other jobs were welder-fabricator,millwright.Three big plant closing including Niagara Machine and Tool Works,the Cadillac of fab equipment.The water has to flow 24-7, and I dont see the Niagara River drying up any time soon.
    I only do the fab like stuff for myself now.Had to get a steady gig. Retire in about 11 years with a state pension.

    I was a heavy equipment mechanic. I still fiddle with hot rods , but I'm getting to think it's like a mailman taking a walk on his day off.
