What I have been up to
College (WIU) - bad idea
Navy '62 - '66 Flew in world's fastest helicopter, operating SONAR equipment, hunting submarines - found a few, but nobody would let me shoot them.
Marriage - 1965 to present. So far, so good. 2 kids, 3 grandkids, 2 great - grandkids.
Technical jobs (TV tech, Appliance tech, a few others) '66 - '77, Sales '77 - '83, Small business owner '83 - '86, Sales '87 - '07. Lived in Japan for about 6 months, working for a government contractor. That was cool! The exchange rate made a Scotch and water in my favorite bar cost 28 cents!
The most fun (after hunting submarines) was selling software and training folks on how to use it to run businesses like the ones I used to work in.
