JEEESH Brett !
And I thought you were just a regular ol' country boy.
I feel privileged and honored to have had the opportunity to actually meet you in person.
I'm impressed to say the least !
Bravo,
RC

LOL, Thanks RC. Your right, I'm just a regular ol' country boy, just been a busy one but I'm slowing down a little now.  :)

I forgot a few of things I'm really glad to have been a part of. I was also a PTO president, coached little league baseball for 3 years, assisted 2 teams one year, coached the allstars 2 years, micro soccer one year and was on the county's school improvement council (all of this was for my kids and others and trying to change what has been mentioned a few post back). I also did some substitute teaching for my high school auto mechanics teacher 3 or 4 years after I graduated when his health was failing him.

My guard dog is not what you need to worry about!

heycorey,

Always thought being a meteorologist would be a good job, you could get out of bed, look out of the window, see rain or snow or sun, then just call in your findings and go back to bed! It must be a cut-throat business 'cause everybody wants that job.

just kidding...

CNC work is rewarding....and keeps you thinking.

I'm afraid I just don't have the curves for meteorology.  Well ... not in the right places anyways.

Since someone else posted a picture or two ... here's one of my corral.  I sold Big Red awhile back, but still have the others.




Along with getting a little mill, I'm also getting certified in duracoating in the near future and will likely be getting certified as a Colt Armorer as well.  I'm thinking my little mill will come in handy on the gunsmithing side.

Brett ,

No one said you had to write a book.   ;D It took me half an hour to read it ,
and another 2 hours to read it to Britt .  :D
So , I guess you didn't work today . BUT it was nice to tell us all.   ;)

Thanks.

Cars? Naw, I try to get over them! They're just transportation now but I keep up with the new stuff. Just bought my wife one of the new Mustang GT convertibles which struck my fancy (great car). C++ was tackled a number of years back and I use it quite often along with LabView at work and I'm still writing in Visual Basic. I have a degree in electronics but went off in other directions after serving in the Navy for six years. I'm still a kid at 61 the other day (26th).

Thanks for the opportunity to be modest about myself....

 Looks like diversity is a trait for those of us interested in Mach3.

Brett, another of your talents must be typing! Interesting read...

Also, someone said to post a picture.....

Exactly Bill. A good group of level headed guys with plenty of common sense and the ability to do anything. Maybe we should be running the country? LOL Mach has such an appeal I think because it is a a nearly never ending learning process. It leads to so many things. I have allways thought that anyone can do anything they want to. Lots of "want to" here on this forum and that is just a persons nature.

I don't see how a person can even exist without a shop and some machine tools. It would be a dreary existence!
