Some of my very best friends are Millwrights.
I've worked with them when they study for tests on Nukes for shutdowns--and we're now at shutdown season for them right now.
I've watched them practice their Knots.
Our custodians at school where I retired have some of the best common sense I've seen.
Meanwhile, I remember my Air Force Dad complimenting me when I was young:
"If your head wasn't screwed on, you'd lose it ".
I've read a lot of your stuff and respect you.
And your computer skills will be invaluable to our society as you grow older like I am--60.
My forte was Chem/Physics teaching--and I'm very proud of what the kids have accomplished with THEIR hard work.
My ultimate goal was to prepare them for that first college year with very tough College Professors in my subject areas.
Not to mention teaching them how to be a good student in anything--including real life .
I used to get a lot of "you don't know what it's like to have kids" from everyone in my life.
I'd retort, "aren't you glad to have a teacher who dedicates his whole life to your kids ?
