During summer I mow grass we work a 24/48. Wifeís not working right now while the babyís are little so itís more like a 48/24 then mow on my off day. We also get medical at special events tough mudder, fair, 5ks that sort of thing. If Iíve got the downed trees I do fire wood in the winter. Where Iím at they are urbanizing rapidly lots of yuppies wanting little bundles for their fire pit on their. .25 acre. Occasionally I get something done around the house.

Regularly teach Linux Admin courses as an adjunct for a local college in their AS program.

Odd side jobs for IT stuff - programming (php, java), Linux server set up for various services (network management, file server, mail server, webserver w/ LAMP stack, etc), network set up and configuration, etc. Pretty much anything but web design/front end stuff. The people that recommend me know I'm picky about who I work for and that I do it on my schedule, but I also do it all right the first time, document everything for them, and don't screw 'em on the price. They also know they can have other people do the job and just run their plan past me as a BS detector ("I'm having this guy do this, he says X will work - will it?")

I detasseled corn 2 summers, one to buy a Win Mdl 62., '54, '55 in Iowa.

Then I stocked candy and pumped gas at a Stuckey's Candy Store one summer - '56. between Eldon and Lake Ozark, Mo. The next 2 summers I was as deckhand on at a speed boat/dance boat dock at Bagnel Dam, Lake Ozark, Mo. The next summer I delivered frozen to foods to restaurants around Lake of the Ozarks and worked at a miniature golf course at night - '59.

Thank goodness, between my freshman and sophomore years [60] at Mizzou I was on the Ochoco NF in Oregon cruising ponderosa pine. Beautiful country, worked there in the summer there in the summer of '62 also before my first full time job on the Flathead NF in Montana in '63.

I failed to mention I shoveled snow from sidewalks and driveways in grade school thru high school for school clothes and candy money.
First year of college while working for the city's Parks&Rec we cleaned up the tourists' and locals' litter from beaches n parks. We also cleaned out the ceement block park restrooms with high pressure hoses which we had to use because of the filth creatively left behind. You were low on the totem pole for that job.
That job was only exceeded by burning while stirring the outhouse half barrels waste contents using fuel oil mixed with jet fuel or whatever else was on hand, in Vietnam.

I think I may have a few ideas for Mike on his show Dirty Jobs.

Over the years I have done lots of odd jobs:
Split wood
Shoveled snow
Basic home repairs
Shagged lost golf balls
Mowed yards
Scraped bark of logs for making log furniture
Took stems off basil leaves (Parents owned a pasta and sauce business)
Delivered Italian sauce and pasta to stores
Loaded/unloaded moving trucks
Fill in waiter at restaurants
Cleaned animal stalls


Current day I have been building a business on the side. I went to gunsmith school about ten years ago and found out that you do that job for the love of it not for the money. I took my experience as a general gunsmith and became a firearms instructor. I now do basic pistol, home defense classes, and my big class is the AR-15 armorers course I teach several times a year. I also do home defense consultation and quite a bit of private shooting instruction. I make more money from that than any other odd job I have ever done, plus its fun to teach others. You really get a sense of satisfaction when somebody asks you to teach them to shoot (when they are scared of guns) and have them hitting bullseyes after the first lesson. The smile on their face is what I love.

I retired after working 45 years for the same company. Found I needed to keep busy so drove delivery van for a auto parts store. Ran about 225 miles a day for 3 years. Now I make stained glass windows and sun catches. Plus go to the shooting range with my .22s.

No amount of words can properly describe that particular joy. Ah, the memories.
