What pays your bills?

Talk about anything that floats your boat (no pun intended). This is general talk about anything not related to boating/fishing.

I play Army 24/7. Started out as heavy construction operator nearly 11 years ago, moved on to fuel supply and now fixin to convert to career recruiter. Business is good and the family is well taken care of. I fund my projects by simply scheming money from the wife when she lets her gaurd down! Otherwise i have to beg and plead and explain why the new flux capacitor on the throttle control module is absolutely essential to mission completion and above all else SAFETY!

Ex Army (Helicopter Weapons Systems), 26 years of Electronics Technician and Telecommunications Tech. Support Engineer - went back to school and now I'm a Respiratory Therapist. Get lots of chances to fish with working 12 hour shifts at the hospital.

Gotta get my tin done so I'll have a boat to fish in.

Structural Steel Draftsman. It can be a cool job when we get a great looking or important building. I have drawn everything from high rises in NYC to The Kimmel Center in Philly to strip malls up the street.

I'm a photographer. Director of Photography at an engineering company called Hunter Engineering. Most mechanics will recognize that name. I have a fancy title for a one man show and I've been at it for nearly 13 years with Hunter. When I'm not behind the camera at work, I am a Photoshop professional or as I like to confuse people I say I'm an engineer of pixelated images. Before Hunter, I was one of 3 photographers in another commercial studio and when the studio wasn't booked...I ran a custom color print lab. Been in the industry since 1987.
Peace,

Shift Supervisor in a medium security state prison. Cut my teeth in a max unit for 7 years, then transferred home to be with the extended family. 18 years working with some of the best people in the world dealing with head bangers and window lickers. Weird hours, lots of people to answer to, hoping for boredom, stepping up when it gets exciting. Its the job you love to hate.

As of right now I'm a Journeyman Roofer at one of the largest contractors in St.Louis.Have been for the last 23yrs,specializing in Single-Ply systems.Before that I was an ASE Certified auto mechanic at a few different "Service Stations".You younger guys may not know what those are,but the older guys should.For you younger guys,they were gas statoins that had "Full Service" gasoline and auto repairs.There are very few left here in St.Louis,of the 4 that I worked at over 10yrs,only one remains at the capacity it was when I worked there.
