    I've been doing this since I was 15yo...didn't have a choice, I was dad's only summertime help when he first got started. I had to leave at age 21, and start my own itty bitty shop before I realized that I really enjoyed this type of work. Dad threatened to sell his buisiness if I didn't come back after 4 years...so I came back...and retired him at age 55. Now my son is here with me...and I've beat it into his head that would very much like to retire at 55 too!
    Really wanna retire and work on more artistic metal fabrication at home when the time comes.

          I am the Safety Manager for a industrial heat treating company. I started this in 1992 and worked my way up from helper, to technician to what I do now. If you build it I can heat treat it :cool:

                  We have been very fortunate so far. I've never seen the work come in in such a crazy way (dead for 2 days then wham!)...but it's still coming in.
                  We typically do better than average during a recession, when folks are fixing stuph.

                    I'm in the medical field, but on the administration side. Good job security, which is why I'm still down here at the coast. I've already been approached by a couple hospitals up in Asheville, so hopefully that will fall into place soon. I have a side business too, and if it'll keep on growing then I'll be doing that full time.

                    Wish I had my land and the logs ready, I'd put you guys to work helping me build the log cabin. Heck, I'd even supply the beer and pig.....

                            Just shut down my little sign-making business. I'm working part-time as secretary/bookkeeper/office manager extraordinaire at a auto repair shop.

                              That makes sense, you work with men.
                              That's why you get along so well with all of us weird guys.

                              Let me guess, you have two or more brothers.
