I'm an Instructional Designer working for the USAF, creating online and computer based training. I have been in the T&D field for a long time and hope that one day I will have enough time of my own to create some great training tools for some fun subject matter!! Like Sailing

She must feed you a lot of beans and brussel sprouts.

Son of a mechanic and have been spinning wrenches for over 50 years for fun, profit and country.

Working on motorcycles for the last 10 years because they seem to have the latest technology, fun to ride and tilt the world like sailing. Naw, at 200mph they are way faster.

Iffin it don't make a least 200hp per liter than it is poop but 400+ with a hair dryer is better.

Baby rattle---4" cresent wrench.

I have lived at the same address for 9 years. For the first couple of years my acquaintance with neighbors was just the causal hello with light conversation. About 4 years ago we had a meet your neighbor party and some friendships turned into regular cookouts.

Now my job requires me to travel 2 to 3 times a month some months and I may be home for 2 to 3 weeks at a time. During my time at home I do yard work, go sailing, pretty much anything but work. This apparently led to my neighbors to gossiping about what I do.

During a cookout last year I discovered that all my neighbors had come to the conclusion I was some kind of international spy. Apparently the gossip led from one conclusion to another until I was this mysterious person.

When they found out I was a business consultant that had clients all over the country and Canada it all made since to them. WE all had a good laugh, although some still think I'm a spy.

You got a love neighborhood gossip.
