    I used to be a beer salesman... that was quite fun and plenty of free beer! It's been hard to get used to having to pay for beer since I changed career paths, but a career change was needed or else the liver would have been in trouble!

    I'm retired at age 69. (30 years as a teacher-10 years as an Insurance Agent) I usually spend my time trying to avoid doing what my wife wants me to! Bought a Winnebago Minnie Winnie 22r. I spend some of my time planning our next RV trip or working on the RV. Or heading to the desert to target shoot with my buddies. Or having a beer with my buddies. Tomorrow I go on an Ebike ride ride with 60 of my neighbors visiting 4 local breweries in 92131. Always time for an afternoon nap!

    23 years as a high school English teacher. The last two were hell with Covid and the return and mask mandates and kids that haven't been in class in forever. I still love working with kids but I'm exhausted.

    My last 5 years were at an inner city High School. The same High School I went to! Some people have a hard time grasping why that was significant. Best 5 years of my teaching career.
    The kids knowing I grew up in their neighborhood gave me some "street cred"
