      In prison, having met and married by beautiful much better half there just one year prior.

      True story.

      I was a shift supervisor of corrections officers. Thought I'd better explain.

      Working as an LPN on the Trauma Unit, MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland, Oh, and coming to terms with the fact that nursing just wasn't what I wanted to do with the rest of my life.
      Also recovering from the infection and removal of my right kidney.
      By the end of the year, I knew that some form of driving was what I wanted to do, though I hadn't thought of getting a CDL A just yet - it took a couple years of local driving gigs to persuade me that driving a truck was where my heart was.
      I haven't changed my mind yet. (Like SusieQ, don't miss the t/t, though). ;)

      Working as a professional land use planning consultant and trying to convince local politicians that the model for automotive recycling was not having a lot of junk cars spread out over acres, but neatly warehoused quarter panels, guaranteed recycled parts, etc.
