About me

Gender MALE
Location New York, United States
Introduction I've been a sailor (who never went to sea), a parts clerk, a truck driver, a service-station owner, a belated college student, worked in a car wash, flipped burgers at Jack-in-the-Box, was a "weed-abater" (cutting, stacking, burning weeds along the All-American Canal), a service-station attendant, worked up to "Leadman" at a motor home factory, was a house painter, both independent and as leadman of a crew at various times, performed building maintenance at a rather exclusive Country Club, was a "salad and sandwich maker" at a high-falutin' restaurant, finished pianos in a factory, finished donuts and waited counter overnites, spent several years converting an old printing factory into an urban shopping mall (doing all of the painting and much of the dry-walling), again worked as an independent painter, again worked on a painting crew, and finally, worked for 16 years as a Home Health Aide. Seems like whatever I did, it was to put the "finishing touches" on something or other. Retired 4 years early, as a result of having made some astute investments (being facetious there), and now living with no chains, anchors, encumbrances or debts. Whoo-hoo, I made it!
