It’s rather funny how life goes. Many years ago, I set out to embark on a career in railroading. I could see myself rolling down the steel highways until I was too old to work any longer, then retiring—totally fulfilled. I’m sure those journeys, the people and the places I would have seen would have been the greatest!
We all have dreams and ambitions from the time we are very young and impressionable. A lot of us are fortunate to find that sweet spot in life that lasts into our golden years.
I remember my high school counselor telling me that I needed to consider going into an automobile related trade. So here I am! The next year I signed up for the auto shop program and was soon working on internal combustion engines in each class.
