Mike has owned and operated a tree service since his early 20s. He was never a student, hated school, loved the outdoors, was a hiker and mountain climber and felt at home high up in the trees! He had all sorts of equipment and a crew of guys, but had to give it up when he got sick with P.D.
My second daughter's boyfriends ran the gamut, and she's now the one who is going with Bert.
My youngest daughter's husband is the ickpray who was never decent to anyone, but he is smart as they come and has made a lot of money in his own construction business. He does city and county projects. That didn't stop him from stealing the eyes out of her head in the divorce. She was very naive, couldn't fight him, and wouldn't listen to me about what was really happening.
My first husband was in retail, and then in a million different ventures, and finally bought a motel on the Oregon coast.
The only one I saw after my divorce that I really liked owned a landscaping business. He did well. He was also the president of the Southern Calif. Landscaper's Association for a while. Poor guy died very young from a massive heart attack.
Then I met Bob. He was always in construction. He was a general contractor, an operating engineer (big machinery) and a builder for spec. When he got older, he specialized in tile because it was easier than the bigger projects.
My own family is all Ph.Ds. Dr. this and Dr. that. And I worked in a college for 31 years, surrounded by Ph.Ds. I found them to be jerks.
