    Well, nothing now.

    My last contract ran out, and was not renewed. Nobody is returning my calls, or responding to my emails.

    I may have been put into early retirement.:eek:

    Retired after working plant maintenance for 25 years, being the team leader for the last 14 years. Included maintenance on CNC machines, overhead cranes, welding equipment, press brakes, shears, and 60 foot long foam press for foaming reefer side walls and roofs as well as doing machine work on lathe and vertical mill and building fixtures of all sorts. That includes working with 480V 3PH, hydraulics, and mechanical of all machines and electrical control systems. Jack of all trades and master of none, I guess

    Lets see, got married to a younger woman that loves to work. I gave her my Subaru Service Center. she has quadrupled the business plus opened more service centers. Now this is the very best part. I was put out to pasture. My job is to keep all of our toys up and at the ready so whenever she wants to drive one of her loud and fast toys(Shelby Cobra, Corvette, super charged Mercedes, 348 Ferrari spyder)just to mention a few, they are all full of gas ready to go.

    Now the final piece of the equation, I get a pay check every week not for what I did but to stay away from the business for another week. They really don't want me hanging around screwing things up..

    just sayin'

    A man owned a small ranch in Montana. The Montana Work Force Department claimed he was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an agent out to interview him.

    "I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them," demanded the agent when he arrived.

    "Well," replied the farmer, "there's my farm hand who's been with me for 3 years. I pay him $200 a week plus free room and board. The cook has been here for 18 months, and I pay her $150 per week plus free room and board. Then there's the half-wit. He works about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of all the work around here. He makes about $10 per week, pays his own room and board, and I buy him a bottle of bourbon every Saturday night. He also sleeps with my wife occasionally."

    "That's the guy I want to talk to, the half-wit," says the agent.

    "You're talking to him right now, Sir," replied the rancher

    I'm a stuntman for the adult film industry. Between gigs I restore Packards and other heavy American classics. Seems to be more restoration lately, which some call professional screwing as well. Go figure...

    Don't do squat for work anymore. Retired from 40 years industrial hydraulics and pneumatics. Designed drives for steel mills, food processing, paper mills, sawmills, etc. Retired from Motion Industries four years ago and have devoted my life to my cars and other hobbies. Life is good.
    Family is fun. Wish I could have dropped out earlier.
