Other things I did
As a student I was a janitor, dishwasher, carpenters apprentice, roofer, paver, ditch digger and general construction laborer. Some of this was actually fun (dynamiting stumps was a blast), but those jobs motivated me to do well in school so I didn't have to be doing them when I was 40 (or 50 or ...).
I like woodworking, reading and some gardening. I also enjoy learning all sorts of "things" and I have taken classes in welding, glass blowing, black smithing, and even dancing (so I know what it means to try somethg in which I have no talent).
And I really love to visit foreign countries.
