Retired after 38 years with the federal government, my last 27 years with the Dept. of Energy (Portland, OR). I was fortunate to get my 2 years of military (US Army/Viet Nam/machine gunner) included in my length of service enabling me to retire at 57. I did computer graphics, the last few years specializing in photo simulations, showing new substations, transmission line projects, etc. and their impact on the environment (mostly for public meetings). I still do contract work for my last employer.
The MB was a retirement gift to myself.. I spend most
summers, "working the land", in my home town of Las Vegas, NM. I have my 1981 chevy truck, several inherited properties and my party shack (Breckenridge travel trailer). Life is good!! When not in NM or OR I'm usually headed to Las Vegas, NV where I grew up from the age 3 (till I left in '77). Most of my family still live in the Las Vegas/Henderson area. Golf, fishing, landscaping work keeps me busy.
2 kids in college, daughter at Portland State and working full time, son at U of Oregon, summer work refereeing soccer games and spending my retirement $$ (went to Germany and Holland last year, just got back from spring break in Phoenix).
