When I got back from Vietnam I went to work for Sears doing display work. On the side, I started painting murals, often in discos. Before long, people were asking me to paint a sign here and there so I was doing some signs. Before you knew it, I didn’t have time for Sears anymore.
Faye, my wife, would go out a couple days a week and cold canvas. She would bring back a few jobs. Soon she only would go out once a week then once a month, then she didn’t need to go at all. We had a steady flow of work. We’ve been lucky because we haven’t looked for work for 28 years.
