Just make sure you get paid for it.

Jobs that fall out of the sky.

Just got a call asking if I was available to do lighting for a musical at the HS. And they'll pay this time.

Those are the best jobs, at least when everyone else thinks its an impossible task.

Also, accomplishing a task that everyone thinks is impossible.

Re: Things I Love


I love that I start technical training on Monday. Warm classrooms, warm shop, hot meals, cute girls.

Also there's a $1000 grant in the mail from the government for completing last year's training, yay!

Re: Things I Love


Hanging out in our old town square festivities for Texas Independence Day on a Saturday when it's in the 70's, (high tomorrow-40, low 20). Just a laid back atmosphere, friendly people, people selling homemade salsa and beef jerky and whatnot, local bands playing bluegrass and old country music, and a little mutton busting with the kids.

This is my 7 year old.

My second favorite holiday behind the Fourth. Always throw a big party at the shop with BBQ, and two cattle troughs of iced down beer. Yeti full of Shiner for the cook (me)

I love taking apprenticeship training. The girls in the campus medical wing are easy on the eyes.
