Director of a government agency here in Kansas that buys surplus materials, machines, supplies, and other things from the Federal Government, and then sells it to the State government, also including schools, non-profit agencies that meet certain requirements, and other places.

A good ole government program.

I was watching a Missouri Conservation show last weekend, and they said that the Longview Lake area has 124 deer per square mile. Their target is 25-30 per square mile, so they may open up a youth, archery, and black powder season there soon.

I am not saying that your Dad was responsible for the amount of deer, but I saw park Ranger and it reminded me of this story.

My grandfather did the same thing. Before he retired my dad and his family lived in state parks all over Missouri and were always moving like you describe. This was a while back though, probably 1950s-60s for the most part, as he passed in 1980 and was retired for some time previous to that.

My dad was a dentist and built an extremely successful practice which he has now sold. He still works for the guy he sold it to part time. Since semi-retiring, he does medical mission work in various countries. (China, Ecuador, and Eastern Europe so far). He's also set up a faith-based clinic in his hometown that serves impoverished families in the area.

While we were growing up, he ran a Boy Scout troop, seeing me and both of my brothers get our Eagle under him. He had over 50 Eagle scouts during his time as a Scoutmaster, and he was a really amazing leader that probably couldn't get away with his leadership style (full-on military) in today's BSA.

He's also an amazing woodworker, which he's started to really indulge in now that he's semi-retired. I'm envious of the workshop he set up and his abilities.

On top of all that, he's the best damned Trivial Pursuit player I've ever met, though I can sometimes give him a run for his money.

Wow, turned into a freakin' ode to my pops, but he's definitely deserving.

Worked on Datsun/Nissans since the early 70s, 'cept for a year when he went to work on VWs. Left Datsun becuase of a lack of work. The guy that owned the Datsun dealership ended up talking him into coming back with an agreement that was VERY favorable to my dad that included guaranteed money - which is very rare for mechanics. Thought the dealership has changed hands since, he's been working for them for 20 years since.


On our Nissan Stanza, I can call him on the phone, tell him what's going on, have him diagnose it, tell me how to fix it, and never see a repair shop.

What is the redeeming quality of SF?


Nothing really. Lived here most of my life. It's alright sometimes, but nothing redeeming.

From what I've been told. Mine did a stretch in the army. Joined during WW2 and got out after he did his time in the Korean War. He owned Springfield Tree Service when he died in 1963. I was 6 months old so I don't know too much about him.

My dad drinks beer and chases women full time now. He used to do it part time until he retired and decided to do it full time.

Before that he was in the Air Force for 30 years. Working on Missile Systems first like the Minuteman missile system. He later became and aircraft mechanic and flight engineer on planes like the C5A Galaxies.

After he retired he went to work for Lockheed and worked on the Stealth fighter program. When that contract started winding down he switched to Civil service and still worked with the Stealth Fighters.

Currently he is triple dipping (30 year Air Force Retirement, Civil Service Retirement, and Social Security.) and enjoying the fruits of his labor.

My dad helped build the Campbell Soup factory in Paris, Tx.

He then worked at Texas Instruments for twenty years as a foreman.

I remember being one of the first in my school to have one of the digital watches that lit up with red numbers.

My Dad played in the NFL until he retired in 1967 as a Chief. He worked various jobs until he became a cop in the 80's. He passed away in May of 2003. :(

Who was your dad?

Mine's been retired for quite awhile. Was the manager of the jet engine shop (and most of the other shops at one time or another) at the TWA overhaul base in KC for about 40 years.

Great thread!

My dad's retired. For the last 33 years he was the editor of the Grain Market Review for the Kansas City Board of Trade the modern equivalent of which can be found here http://www.kcbt.com/kcbt_review.asp. Before that he worked on a railroad and worked for the KC Star. He covered a police beat for NE KC. He got to met a lot of the mafia guys back then as they were all buddy buddy with the cops that my Dad would hang out with. He has some interesting stories about that, much more interesting than writing the occasional statistical analysis of Red Winter Wheat futures.

He has been a great Dad and he's a perfect Grandpa.

When my dad got home from Vietnam he joined the Laborers Union Local 110 in St. Louis. Worked for 30 years and retired a couple years ago. When I was 11 we moved to Poplar Bluff and he would come home only on weekends. Odd family. He always had great stories, especially the ones about his mafia friends.

Around the time I was born he started a home medical equipment company which was sold around '98. He then started Lunar Bowl in '01 and is now moving into commercial real estate.

I delivered parts there when I was working part time in a machine shop and saw this fat bastard stirring a huge vat of tomato soup with a boat oar..

It wouldn't have been so bad if he didn't have a big chew of tobacco and was spitting in the thing the whole time.

I'd saw one of my nuts off with the sharp soup lid from the can before I ate any of their soup.

I'm not sure what my Dad does, he left when I was 2 and we don't really keep in touch. I think he was like...a greens keeper for a golf course last I heard. My stepdad on the other hand has been a trucker for 15 or so years.
