I was a teacher and coach and a lot of other things in the past.
Mostly I was in pharmaceutical sales for 18 plus years until I was layed off.
Out of necessity I ended up in landscaping and frankly I feel better about myself doing this.
I have no idea what else God has in store for me.

Hey Anthony, I thought you were a barber now?
No, never have been. My wife is the barber. I just own the shop. :D (And that's the way I like it.) I have been driving trucks on and off since I was 17. (I'm 34 now.)

Once upona time, used to be a software tester and database programmer /admin in my life before kids. Two of the coolest places I worked was Microsoft and Muzak(the elevator music people). Have also been involved leading many womens ministries over the years, from teams/events to Sunday School. There's something about worshipping God with all your sisters in Christ :bigsmile:

Pretty much can be summerized now as helpmeet, housekeeper, baker, student and teacher :)

Philip - oh my...your not far from the "land that time forgot." Five years ago I drove through China Lake towards Death Valley. There is a town there called "Trona." Freaky town. No one lives there. All the homes are abandoned. Reminds me of the "Andromeda Strain."

Never done that but I can appreciate your headaches. We just had our Astro in for a fix-up and now the Malibu is in to find out why the ABS light comes on ($$$) and the turn signals quit working (but you can re-start them by running the emergency flashers for a few seconds.) I don't think you could pay me enough to handle those calls you get.
