I work in the shipping department of a paper bags factory. I pretty much do eveything as I have been there 18 years. My main job is putting pallets of finished goods into and out of the stand up racks like in Home Depot. Only difference is they drive really slow there. I also drop ship product all over the world(via UPS). And when the need arises I also do yard jockey work.

I have worked in the automotive industry since 88' in various quality compacities from quality engineer to quality manager. I also am a car freak and just finishing a model T hot rod that I have been building for 3 years. My wife is an avid scrapbooker and scrapbook teacher and is supportive of all my vises. (cars and fishing)

 

I see a lot of varied and interesting backgrounds involved on the board.

I sell furniture in a local retail store. My wife is an elementary art teacher. I teach fly fishing and fly tying at a local college and in the adult education in our public school. Two kids (kids?) son age 31 and daughter age 28. Both enjoy fly fishing, but son is a fly fishing and fly tying addict. Son also builds fly rods, a skill I lack the endurance for, but do enjoy fishing the rods he builds.

I'm a cop (16 years), my wife works part-time in sales(paper industry), the rest of the time she is a girl scout leader, PTO president, homemaker, & mom. I have a 12 year old son who is into soccer, baseball, basketball, boy scouts. A 10 year old daughter into soccer, basketball, softball, & girl scouts. I've been a Detective for 9 years primarily doing Drug investigations, though there was about a year and a 1/2 stint in there doing robberies/burglaries(needed a break). About 2 years ago, i was offered a chance to join a Federal Drug Task force which i jumped at, so now I get to chase dopers all over the country(I'm still a local cop, just sworn in as Federal Task Force Agent.....I just have to carry 2 badges now). In my spare time, I coach soccer/baseball, boy scout leader, & fish.

I'm currently serving with the 10 Mountain Division Light Infantry as a crypto graphic radio repairman. I pretty much work on everything from night vision, radios, laser sights for weapons, etc. I've been in the Army for over 15 years now. My unit was deployed for 15 months in Kuwait and Iraq....the longest deployment for any unit in the 10th Mountain Division so far. That's about the gist of it. Keep Those Serving "Over There" In Your Prayers.....this is going to be a long one.
