I'm a licensed railroad conductor in "The Last Frontier", certified in both freight and passenger service. These days, railroad conductors and locomotive engineers are licensed after meeting strict Federal Government training and certification standards, much in the same manner that commercial airline pilots are licensed. It's an interesting profession, a constant adventure, sometimes dangerous, very demanding, and comes with a wacky lifestyle. But I love it.

I had 3 real jobs after college and learned I don't suffer fools very well. Decided I was as big a fool as they were and started my own business. Every 3-10 years, I would either sell or close down that business. take a year off, and then start a new business.

My last business was the one I enjoyed the most. I started doing contract training and then grew it into a technical training company where we taught Novell and Microsoft network operating systems, web development, network security, etc.

Sold the business in 2002 and never got around to starting another one so I guess I must be retired.

I was a teacher/guidance counselor and don't have any pictures of me "at work." Tomorrow, Sept 2, I start into my 25th year of retirement. Unbelievable. I retired young though I taught from 1958 until 1990. Are any of you older than I am? If you are, good. I won't be the only "old f**t" on here.

I have been a computer programmer for 30 years. I started out on punch cards, way back before PC's. Nowadays I find I am as old as my colleague's parents. Really annoying.

I pushed and drove ships all over the oceans of the world. Had a lot of fun doing it and enjoyed seeing many places. Sorry i haven't figured out how to upload a picture.

First job(s) after college were graphic artist for newspaper and various ad agencies. Went overseas and taught Scuba diving (PADI Master Instructor) to 500+ people in several countries. Owned a commercial bakery in El Salvador. Came back to the states and got a mechanical engineering degree at age 56, and worked as an engineer until I retired last year. Now, I want to and do travel, but need the trailer to carry my adoptees (two cats and a parrot) with me. I'll enjoy it more than they do, but at least they won't be home alone any more.
I don't get lost, I go on interesting side trips.

And the cute kid story: My husband had passed the bar and was being awarded his certificate by a SC Supreme Court justice in front of a packed house. The solemn ceremony was broken up by my five-year-old asking loudly "Is my Daddy a liar now?"

"It doesn't pay very well but the hours are terrible..."

Basically, some guy waves a stick at me and I bounce around trying to draw a pleasant sound out of an antique wooden box. If I think about it too hard, it's a totally ludicrous way to make a living, however, I do love doing it and somehow they keep paying me!
