1@Big_Red_Fred Since I am retired and living off Social Security and other small pensions increasing the herd is not going to happen for a the following reasons:

1. I plan on living a long time.

2. I don't have funds to build a garage or move to a house with major storage .

3. :wh: in Virginia are few and high priced.

4. I don't like sleeping with one eye open. ( I might get smothered with a pillow ) { Also have been told :  divorce no ,murder yes}

I learned that if you are in the Navy and are on a sub, you can't sleep with the window open. If you try, they send you to the Coast Guard! :)

But Jim, we just got a $3.00 increase in our Social Security......Oh wait,  Medicare went up $10.000.  :confusion-confused:

I guess that could be called a  -$7.00 increase.

Well, actually when it really gets down to it, it is really not my job that pays for the Wheel horses as much as buying and selling.

Now that you mention it I very rarely ever use household money to pay for my tractors, maybe gas in the car or truck but not the actual purchase, It comes from like cleat says buying and selling or doing side jobs in HVAC work,and most of the time that money goes into the household money to keep it afloat. but my jobs at work give me the skills to do the side jobs. that is also why my wife doesn't say a whole lot about my hobbies, becuase she knows it help, every little bit helps

Started out at 15 as a janitor through high school. Was accepted in 1982 to vo tech in the carpenter/cabinetmaker program. Never went as a I got a job in a factory for pretty good pay in 1982 so I stayed on for 23 years as a Die Casting machine operator, we had machines from 40 ton up to 600 ton. Left that job went to Lowes as a kitchen cabinet specialist, liked the customer service part of that job, was trying to get into management. Didn't really care for retail hours so I went back to my old job. Within 2 months of coming back I was hired into management, that lasted 8 years before being moved back to an hourly employee. Currently running a 300 ton stamping press. I see the light at the end of the tunnel although it is dim I can see it. On the side my son @prondzy and we do buy and sell Horses and parts, build K series Kohlers.

:text-yeahthat:Most of my horse money comes from HVAC side jobs which I promptly turn over to the Missus. :huh: Must be something about when the preacher mumbled something about for richer or poorer! :lol: If I come across a horse I think is worth wrangling she gives me back whatever I need because she knows that that money also pays for our vacations and the occasional supper out. Resto & motor build dollars come out of my pocket tho which is ok since I am in leave orginal mode these days. Works out well for us.

Racinbob,

Interesting life story.......really.......you sound very fortunate to have had some great employment situations. Everyone should be so lucky.

 

Being a Hoosier myself, and the son of a physician, I'm well acquainted with and aware of the enormous orthopedic manufacturing experience and capabilities in Warsaw, IN, over the years.

I'm curious if your reference related to one of three companies in Warsaw, "Orthopedic Capital of the World" , i.e. : Zimmer, DePuy, or BioMet?

What say you, Sir?

It was Zimmer. I had electricians working in there on a T&M basis year round for a while. Sometimes 10-12. Some Zimmer employees actually thought we were part of their maintenance department.  I estimated and was the project manager on their executive office building in the center of town. I did a little bit of work at Biomet and DePuy. That came about mainly from Zimmer 'defectors' knowing me and wanted me to consider some work. With the competition being so fierce I talked to a couple of key Zimmer execs to see if it would be ok. Fortunately they trusted me to maintain 100% confidentiality. I only let work at those two places come to me. I didn't want to take any risk in messing up the Zimmer account that every contractor in northern Indiana dreamed of having.:)
