Retired Middle School Shop Teacher,
34 years in the classroom.
Still have all ten of my fingers. Just not as many brain cells.
5,000+ kids that I sent home to their parents at 2:30 everyday.

How in the the world, do you still have all 10 fingers.  Big, after hearing that, if any of us had the "magic bullet" i would believe it was you :)

I was wondering how this one got resurrected.

I'm a retired gunfighter and part time Indian chief.
At least that's what it says on my Republican Precinct Committee card.

I owned a Dunn & Bradstreet investment firm until I sold it and retired at age 29.  Seemed like a good idea at the time but my wife now refers to me as "permanently unemployed".   ::)  Age 60 now.  Started coaching in 1993.

I don't want to sell anything, buy anything, or process anything as a career. I don't want to sell anything bought or processed, or buy anything sold or processed, or process anything sold, bought, or processed, or repair anything sold, bought, or processed. You know, as a career, I don't want to do that.

So I became an Information Analylst for a healthcare company.

Next time, I'll be a kick boxer.  It's the sport of the future.

Happy Belated Dave...you are now officially older than dirt. 8)


Architect

2 kids ....5 grand kids

Coach Mike...also older than dirt.

Update.

I now have 6-1/2 Grandkids. My daughter has one in the oven.

And yes I did have "that talk" with both of my kids when they were younger. Didn't listen. Its like a contest between the two of them.  :P The oldest is 8 and the youngest is due in August. Another Boy !

Im not complaining though...at this rate I will be coaching my own grand kids well into my 70's.  8)

I work for a Major Bank in a call center. I have two kids and my son will be starting tackle football this year. He can't wait and either can I. My daughter is probably going to be playing flag this year and she is actually the more athletically gifted of the two and definitely the tougher of the two by a mile.
