graduating, I went to McNeese State University in Louisiana with a
scholarship in music. Not only was it a hell of a culture shock, but was
informed after I arrived that my scholarship was for Band (instead of
Orchestra), requiring that I attend all the football games and MARCH, etc.
Imagine that! That's just wasn't me, so I upset my parents righteously by
changing my major and dropping my scholarship. :o) Never graduated either,
but somehow ended up in California where I lived until 1996, after
retiring from the Postal Service. I tried to transfer to Tennessee (where
I now live), but finally decided to take a deferred retirement. I was
anxious to leave beautiful Southern California for my kids' sakes. Very
crowded, and quite crime-ridden... So, here we are near Nashville, in a
small town that seems an ideal place for our kids. The plan was to start a
business and get rich. That's when I took a class teaching the rewards of
day-trading stocks. I've been doing that ever since. A bonified Day-Trader
I am, I am. An ideal job, like I never dreamed of. I sit in front of a
computer with three screens and just watch our wonderful market go up
& up and just take profits along the way. I do all this from the
comfort of my home. The hours are good, too... 8:30 to 3. Life IS
I have three children: Gayle (14), Linda (11), & Chris (9), and a wonderful wife ( 20+ years), Debbie. I have been blessed, and am indeed a very lucky man...
I'll probably live here forever, though I do hope to make a few trips to Panama. I haven't been there for about 20 years. I'm due for a visit soon...
