  4. Richard King

    Richard King Puritan Board Senior

    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.

    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.
