I've always wanted to work at Legoland and get to build things with Legos all day long...

But that lottery winner thing sounds good, too...

I've had some pretty decent jobs. I started as an EOD Technician, then moved on to M.I. until I retired from the Army. After that, I cas a city cop for nine years and now I still work for the government at the American Embassy in Moscow, Russia.

At age 10 I began dreaming of being a truck driver. At 16 I got my first driving job on the hayfields around Baldwin. At 53 I retired from 37 years of nearly continuous driving jobs. Some good days and some bad but wouldn't trade a minute of it for anything else. As I have told others, I could have dreamed higher but not better. Few can say the same.

I would like to be a translator for Ozzy but I don't think that will happen so I will take my desire to work for the devil and become an IRS auditor

Maybe a photographer for Playboy. Get to see of them ladies come and go and get paid a fair amount of money to make them look better.

I think I will stick with still being Hollis's (Rara's) guitar tech, pay ain't great but the drugs are

NFL Linebacker. Mike Singletary like both on and off the field.

And, then when I retired from football, a PGA golfer --- I would say the way Tiger was before he hurt his knee on the course and the way Jack is off the course.

The first job I ever had was assembling bicycles. When I got caught up I was told to grab a broom and clean up. The job I retired from was as a driver for a major LTL freight company. If business was slow I was told to grab a broom and clean up.

Guess you could say I was swept away with my work . . .

I smell ya, man. Don't give up. Small hint. Lawrence, KS, is not the best place to chase your dreams. Of course, there is Potter's Pond, to start training. - Good Luck! - Odeo

To say this three times fast:

"As Kansas enters its 151st year, we thought everyone could use a refresher on our state facts. We visited with local fourth-graders, who just so happen to be studying Kansas history. Here’s what they had to share."

New field sobriety question, I guess...Pretty lame....
