there was always the family commercial flooring and tile business but i'm glad i got out of that. i didn't really have any specific goals or idea as i liked all sorts of different sciences. i think entomology was considered by me as i really enjoyed learning about ants and other bugs.
in high school one teacher recommended computer science because of how i went about solving problems. that was a career for 15 years and then i retired from that to do other things (i spent way too many hours sitting at a terminal) and eventually ended up as a librarian for a part-time job and then i quit that when the library management changed. so now i'm gardening as my part-time job (paid in beans and peanuts ) and then during the off-season i can pick back up on computer projects.
i still do like pretty much all of the sciences and for doing sustainable low input organic gardening it all works together in various interesting ways.
So I wonder, are you in Oshkosh now for EAA? I went there yesterday. Don't think I've ever seen so many people happily living their dream in one place. ✈️ 🛩️I wanted to fly jets. My grandpa used to take me to the big airport & we'd watch them take off & land for hours. Fast forward, I went to college & then entered the Air Force, where I was privileged to be trusted with a jet. I retired 22 yrs later, 16 of which I spent in a cockpit.

Some may notice from my posts that I spent a lot of time with my grandpa... My father literally hated me for for what I did.
