The locations thang was interesting.
What do ya'll do or did do when ya'll was still doing it. How many trades did ya'll aquire.

I started by tearing up every thing I ever had. Eventually I learned to put stuff back together.
I am a decent mechanic. I like welding and making things. Self taught refrigeration. Spent 16 years installing phones systems and intercoms. Last 5 years in computer networking.

Scientist doing R&D in optical systems and digital image analysis, but over the years, worked in metallurgical research lab, taught college (physics, astronomy and fly tying), technical director of an international engineering society, nuclear reactor engineer, and other stuff along the way. Just bought a small acreage and am building a barn, garage and extra living space, trying to restore a field for alfalfa or grass hay, and in general, enjoying trying to become a hobby farmer. Can't wait to retire to do it full-time.

Restore vintage race cars for a hobby, when not camping and riding horses in the mountains with my wife of 22 years.

After 4 yrs USAF Presidential Radio Service, I became a pastor and fed that profession with electronics R&D specialist work,

Since grown into a Computing Data Architect and Systems Analyst (Computers go crazy and need plenty of anyalysts.)

I've been a bus mechanic and fixed or rebuilt LOTs of car and truck engines.

Self taught metal gluer. (some call it welding but not after seeing me work)

Did my own construction, electrical, plumbing and framing for my house in North Bend, WA.

Now I'm candidating for a church that can pay me full time. I've been working with pioneer church planting and small church development for over 22 yrs. so it's time we settled down.

I'll still keep tractors though.

Good idea, Tim.

After 4 years in the Army as a chopper pilot, I took a temporary job with the local phone company. 32+ years later, I'm still here. From 1983, till 2000 I was behind a desk in the Control Center, then Engineering. In 2000, I took a slight pay cut and came back out to the field. Can't believe I spent 17 years at a desk!
Looking toward "retirement" soon, so I bought a sawmill to provide my next career, along with maintaining our 20 acre "farmette."

Dan
Lotta fun in that Control Center won't it?I spent 5 years there,bout as close as I came to chucking my 28 year career with Bell Atlantic,Verizon or whatever they call themself this week.
Don't like to call myself retired,just tell everyone I took an 'early out'.
Kinda true,took a buyout in 1991,have never regretted one minute of it.

I was raised on a cattle ranch, but my Dad also was a Deputy Sheriff. I went to college to be a science teacher, and fought fire every summer. I ended up becoming a Deputy Sheriff, which paid better than teaching, and stayed there a career, mostly as a criminal investigator. I retired because of some health problems and now take care of the house, as my wife is still employed. I think I am a pretty good cook. I also like to tinker with my toys: tractors, machinery, trucks and cars. I also am doing things on my property that I never had the time to do before I retired.

U asked for it.
Entered US Army 10 days before I was 17. November 1950. Served Korea (2nd Infantry Div), became a guest (?) of the Chinese for 8 months 9-1/2 days, we left, didn't like the amenities.

After 14 months in hosp. I was retrained into automotive maintenance, served total of 22 years. Finally was forcerd to retire in 72. At the time I was the Port Operations NCO in Bremerhaven Germany.

Farmed part time, drove truck over the ALCAN for Lynden Transport out of Lynden Wash 2 weeks out of each month. Wife and I split up in 73, I went on the road with my own rig as an owner operator.
Married current wife along with 7 kids in 80.Wouldn't trade her for a million.

1984, two heart attacks, had to quit trucking . VA sent me to college for 4 yrs. Earned 2 degrees.Couldn't find work in trucking industry, they couldn't afford the insurance, so I taught Mathematics (Algebra Geometry, and applied Calculus), German, and History.

1995 current wife had to retire, so we sold out in Utah and moved to KY. Two strokes, now sit down all the time, ride my scooter and play on this infernal contraption.

I'm a design engineer with a major aerospace company in the Seattle area. Been there for 21 years. I mostly work with electronics, but have done aircraft structure design and some cockpit design. That's about it for money-making work, I built my house a few years back and repair tractors and trucks for therapy now.

I am a homemaker of 24 years, raised four between
17 and 24. (Want a lot of time off before the
grandmother thing, ha, ha.) Husband is a Boilermaker, so I have been the home-based person. Worked in clerical/secretary jobs when
we met. Both our parents raised Christmas trees. His family's were trimmed, our's were
untrimmed, (the old-fashioned way)--so he likes
to razz me. Now, we are trying to continue on
the tradition as best we can. The extra cash
helps pay for daughter at college, as she trims
the trees. My father-in-law asked me once if
I wanted a pine for the back yard. When I said
"Sure", he arrived with the crookedest tree he
had got in his shipment. Would you believe it is
the most beautiful thing! I have yet to add a
little sign "Crooked Pine Pass" to our yard.
We had a lot of bad luck in town, stress,
noise got worse as fire dept. got louder sirens.
I have extreme sensitivity to noise, so here we
are. We are getting sheep to mow our 2 pastures
this year. Did a lot of babysitting, room mother
at school. Now when folks ask me if I work, I tell them "My husband is work". They all laugh,
because they know him pretty well.
We have lots of cats for mousers, and an incorrigible Lab. (the dog will never change)
We have an 1860's farm house with a lot of flat
roofs. There's been a love-hate relationship
with the house. One minute I am massively
remodeling it in my mind, bulldozing
it down the next. I am so afraid in 10-15 years
we will "have" to build a new house, just because
this one won't last!
Raising my own fruit trees, as diabetes runs in my family, and I have been told to start eating
sugar free.
So, I would say now that I feel more established
in the country after 12 years, I am looking
to positive things for the future.
If you haven't noticed already, I am the "worrier"--so that's what I do. (My husband
leaves all the worrying up to me.) So glad we only have 3 acres to worry about!

I farm a quarter section of land in the evenings and weekends...during the day I take care of 50 school buses in the city of Winnipeg. In my spare time I have a fishing shack on Lake of The Woods.

Oh ya..I also leap tall buildings...


Ludwig    Posted 05-09-2002 at 07:11:00       [Reply]  [No Email]
Guess I'm the kid around here...
I spent a stint as a surveyor's assistant, and
probably would have followed my Dad's path
into surveying if it hadn't been for one winter
out surveying for the railroad. When the
instruments used to freeze you could tell the
windchill was approaching -60.
So I went to College. In the process of getting
though there I got to be a delivery boy, burger
cook, concrete finisher, form stripper, junior
banker, computer fixer and librarian.
Then once I graduated I settled down as an
in-house videographer (what I went to school
for) for the training group in a big company.
When they laid me off I started a new career in
Tech Support for a company that makes video
editing systems.
Then when we hit hard times I got moved over
to Software Quality Assurance. So now I'm an
SQA Engineer. Supposedly I'm going to go
back to techsupport at some point, but I'm
kind of thinking I actually like SQA better.

On the side I'm writing a book about
snowmobiles and trying to actually keep more
than one snowmobile running at a time. Oh,
and restore my '28 Farmall Regular.
And keep the grass from getting too tall on the
farm, and keep the roof from falling in on the
camp. And keep my grandmother's house
from falling in. Not to mention I've recently
become the "head grounds keeper" at my
parent's house since Dad's back bothers him
too much to ride the mower any more.
Then theres the inlaw's house that really
needs a new porch floor....
Yeah, you might say I'm busy.

grew up in Ia, spend last thirty years in Ca, Moved to Va with 10 acres to play around in. Most of my life I repaired automobile frames and bodies

After I got out of the Army worked as a breakmen for the railroad. I wanted to see what was on the other side so moved to Alaska where I went to work for the Anchorage Police Department. Retired after 20 yrs. Also retired from the National Guard spending most of the time running the marksmanship unit. Retired in '94 and returned to Wyoming where I own 28 acres and lease another 120. Raise pigs, horses and cows. Play with tractors and goof off. (Mostly goof off).

I am a stay home mom. We have 9 acres and are just beginning to learn what it is all about. When we first bought the place I had hopes of opening a small nursery(plants) and although that hope is still there, we have decided that the savings of living off of our own land will probably matter more than me going out to work. Once I get the hang of it I'll see about opening a nursery. We have lots to do here. The house is to be painted this spring and the barn needs a little work in order to better care for livestock. I love every minute of it! It is my therapy. I lost my son about 2 1/2yrs ago, and besides my husband and two little girls, this move to heaven has saved me.

I retired from a small town police department, bought a hobby farm and raise horses, goats, and other assorted critters, plus the duties of being Mr. Mom while my wife teaches college part time and works full time as a nurse practitioner.

Well, I quit college after 1 year, not for me !!! So I moved furniture for a year at a furniture store, not for me either. Applied at a roofing company, told everybody I would be gone by the time the snow flies. 10 years later, I quit and started my own roofing and construction company. I've been doing it for about 8 years now, and since I liked it SO much, I started another roofing company, just so I wouldn't have ANY time for myself.

Grew up as an "Army brat" wishing I lived on a farm. Met my high school sweetheart. Left for West Point to learn a trade, married same high school sweetheart and dreamed about farming during the entire career in the Army...gardened every year, read lots of farming books. Retired from the Army, started teaching Program Management and engineering and began the active search for a little farm we could learn on without messing up too badly.

After 5-6 year search we bought 19 acres of hills and rocks, commute about 3 hours a day to the city to pay for it while we learn all the stuff we didn't know that we didn't know. Still working program management, but may eventually get into teaching high school.

that's my story, and I'm sticking to it!

I was an electronics technician and technical instructor in the Navy, where I picked up most of my technical skills. I retired in 1990, and now work part time as:

A Maine Fire Training & Education Instructor and volunteer firefighter (no pay for this, but trust me, it IS work)

An Adult Ed instructor in computers and software

A contract consultant for the local school district, providing support in computer maintenance, networking, budgeting, obtaining private, state and federal grants, specifications and purchasing and software management.

I was raised on a farm, and have returned to my roots as a hobby farmer on an EXTREMELY limited budget, so like any farmer, I've had to become conversant with

Plumbing
Electrical work
Masonry
Carpentry and light construction
Welding and Fabrication
Mechanics, equipment repair and maintenance
Composting
Animal husbandry
Soil management and erosion control

In my spare time, I sleep...

Grew up in Vt Mostly on dairy farms. Did my stint in the service then worked in a shop in Rutland for 10 yearsand farmed part time. started farming full time and decided to move to Pa. (Vt. was a much nicer place to live when there were more cows than people.)Got down here in time for the bottom to fall out of the milk market so I worked as an inspection mechanic and then did maintanence in a sawmill.Now I log with horses.

I'm in coastal Maine, east of Bar Harbor. Is there a "network" for horse loggers? I've got a small woodlot (15 acres or so) that I wouldn't mind thinning out, but I'll be danged if I'm gonna let them chowder it all up with skidders. Might be interesting to get in touch with someone that does that sort of work.

Good Morning,

Well here it is 5:00am and about an hour ago our neighbor called to say Storms Coming so needless to say, we just got out of the storm shelter. Side note, we have two neighbors so we make sure everyone (all six of us) is alerted, we are the only ones with a storm shelter - CONTROL!!!???(LOL).

Anyway in answer to what we do or did. Up until three months ago Dennis and I owned an awards business in Houston, TX. We did engraving, sand etching on glass, trophies, lasering, etc. It was fun and different. We had done it for over eight years. Our business grew so much that we were putting in 16 hour days/everyday except for two slow months. Trying to get people to work for us was like pulling teeth so we did it ourselves. The work was great but some customers were not so we decided it was time to move on before our golden years started to rust and move on we did.

We moved to AR, we knew not a soul here, have ten acres and we are now attempting??!! to live off the land which will take a long while since we are greenhorns, but thanks to you guys we are learning bit by bit. We have sheep, pigs, chickens, ducks, rabbits, two inside cats, two outside kittens, one inside dog and one outside dog. No garden yet, I forgot Dennis' excuse for that but that's okay.

We are having a grand ole time except I will say my respect for farmers has gone up 500%, we only have a few animals which to us is fun but farmers really work their butts off and I applaud each and everyone of you.

Anyway that's our story.

EIEIO & What's His Name? oh yeah Dennis

Started out a Carpenter till some one droped a 2X6 off a porch on my head! Thought it was to dangerouse to continue this trade. Became a Electrician for 30+ years got burnt out and decided to bake dog cookies and take tractors apart for a living working at home. Mark H.

I part them out most of the time for others to fix theirs. I have restored a Panzer, 1942 9N, and I have 1941 Mighty Mite Garden Tractor to do also. Here is a picture of the first real tractor I did. It did not look like this when I got it. Mark H

The one I have has a 1 cylinder Briggs 9 hp engine. That is the engine they came with. Chain rear drive in enclosed housings and a Jeep 3 speed transmission with a centrifical clutch mounted in front of the transmission. Weights about 850 lbs with 15 inch rear tires and 12 inch front tires. It is real basic looking with no frills just a hood covering the enging and a tractor seat with no fenders along with a hand lever to work the clutch and one for the hitch. Mark H.

What are they? Surely not cookies for dogs!! Is this the internet business you were talking about?


Mark Hendershot    Posted 05-08-2002 at 21:55:49       [Reply]  [No Email]
Sammie; Yes Dog Cookies! It is called Bigpaws Pantry Inc. Been doing it around 12 years now. We bake about 14,000 lbs of them a year and sell them mail order all over the United States and some Foreign Countries. You can see our site at www.bigpawspantry.com on the internet. I know it sounds funny but it allows us to stay at home and work. Carol dose most of it and I help when needed. I get to do the mail runs and pick up flour in town like today. I had to meet the truck and pick up 1580 lbs of stuff to restock. We have it shipped to us but the truck can't make it up to us, it is a semi type. With Dog Cookies you do not deal with the health dept regulations but we make them better then people cookies anyway. Mark H.

Cool, Mark!! Neat idea. I'll check out your site in the morning. Right now, I'm on my way to bed. BTW, is there anything in those cookies that people wouldn't eat? LOL

Not in the ones we sell. But there are things in people cookies that companys sell you shouldn't eat like the perservitives in them so they can sit on the shelves for ever. Mark H.

Mark, have you tried a listing in online stores like geezer.com ? They DO give your product exposure to like 1200 search engines & are a cheap signpost. Maybe it's worth the small gamble.


Mark Hendershot    Posted 05-09-2002 at 06:52:44       [Reply]  [No Email]
Thanks, Right now it has grown every year and we don't avertise except by word of mouth from people who buy them. Not sure if we could handle it doubling again. It started out as a hobby for my wife then just took off! It sorta is full time perduction for her now. We have been letting it grow slowly over the years and if it gets to big I will have to start working in the pantry full time. I kind of like playing around doing the out side things and parting out a tractor once and a while. When I was a Electrical contrator for 19 years I never had time for the family that's why I helped my wife build her company then closed mine. Best thing I ever did and never regret it a bit. We can just let it grow as big as we want and still keep it under control. Mark H.

I like that approach Mark. I worked as a carpentry contractor for 20 years. Never had time for the really important things. Do now though,
started all over again with a new set of eyes to see through, he is two, and he has a baby brother on his way in 3 weeks. Do want the cart ahead of the ox anymore in my home. Don't pay.

Well I just got off the day shift at home! I just cleaned up a bunch of Jubilee parts to sell. Going to town to get the mail and then when I get back I will pick up the kids with the school bus again. Seems like I allways have these little things to do all day off and on. Sounds like you had a interesting carrear doing the things you did. Mark H.

Hi, Mark, don't know about interesting, just putting groceries on the table, according to a lot off these other folks's posts, I'm just a shadow in the corner......but thats all-rite, anytime you need a hand with something, just give me a hollar, like Red Green says, "Ya might not find me handsome, but ya will find me handy"! have a gooder, R.E.L.
