    I work as a self-employed builder and also own two other businesses. One in food and a craft/gift stall.

    Sometimes I wished I had a job in forestry but I really enjoy doing my own thing.

    What do you do? Also, do you wish you did something different?

    Cheers,
    Sam

    I design material handling automation systems.
    Everything from conveyors to high density storage systems.

    Been doing it for 6 years now and absolutely love it.

    There's just something awesome about designing a system to meet a customers unique challenges and seeing it take physical form...

    Lots of cool toys and programs to use and no two projects are ever the same.

    I'm much like ironwolf. Since I'm also retired, either I am working on these forums, watching TV, or napping.

    I am a Data Analyst for a major publishing company.

    I wish I had been chosen the many, many times I applied to be a police officer. That was my dream.

    In this day and age I wouldn't want to be a police officer. Things happen and your on the news and in court.

    My 25 years as a law enforcement was very rewarding, and wouldn't have changed it for anything. I sometimes forget I am retired and really long for the midnight call outs.

    Here is an old pic of me, as a pup, with my pup.

    How did you get into that line of work? probably some sort of Engineering coursework?

    I did kitchen and bath design for several years, and that's probably the most fun I've ever had at a job.

    Except for when I was a student and worked as a bowling/billiard hall attendant - I basically got paid to study or play pool.

    I drove to Pittsburgh in 2010 to go to Kennywood.
    In 2009 I traveled to Austin Texas by car.

    That's it for my travels. Nothing interesting or exciting.
