I couldn't make it as an artist and ended up in pet food manufacturing.

That's awesome. I have very fond memories of my 8th grade US History teacher, Mr. Miller. He was a B-17 navigator and if we ever got bored with Reconstruction or the New Deal or what have you, we'd just ask him about warplanes. He had strong opinions regarding the Me-109 vs. the FW-190 vs the P-51 Mustang vs. the P-47 Thunderbolt.

I couldn't vote because I own my own business, and nothing mentioned was related.

Can I change my answer? Thanks to COVID I now live a life of leisure. At least until the unemployment runs out. Funny how there aren't many job openings during a pandemic.

Does eating tacos and riding vintage mountain bikes count? Lol. Truthfully I am post divorce relocated and actively looking...don't care what I do as long as it doesn't get in the way of shredding and grubbing lol

Another high school teacher - but not for long. Retiring in June 2021!

Not everyone likes them, but my LHT with a basket is the best commuting/touring bike I've ever owned.
