After I go t out inn Dec 79, I went to work for Banner Iron Works in St. Louis.  That was kind of a sucky job because the place was in the process of closing from bankruptcy when they hired me.  I went to United Technologies next making foam rubber and putty.  I went to night school and got a degree in engineering, so I was promoted to their engineering department.  I was in my 2nd marriage by then and had 4 kids.  I figured out that St Louis was no safe place for them, so I moved to Columbia, MO. and worked in  plastic injection molding plant as the engineering/ environmental department.  After 7 years, the owners closed that plant and I didn't want to move to Michigan, so I went to work for a factory that made furnaces and air conditioners.  After 7 years there, they laid off all their engineers.  With the economy being in the dump, I moved to the Kansas City area, drifted from one job to another for a while and then spent 3 years working in an Army owned ammunition factory.  I had enough BS and retired at 64.  I am on my 3rd marriage. between us we we have 9 kids, 17 grand-kids, and 2 great grand-kids.  They're scattered out over half the country.  SOme of my grand-kids I've only seen once or twice, but they are happy and in good hands with their parents.  Otherwise, I"m happier now than I've ever been in my  life.  I spend most of my days playing with my tools and not taking orders from some halfwit.

I'm sure glad to find another one of my old friends.  Do you ever hear from Hulney?  I don't have time right this minute, but I will fill you in on myself a little  later.  Right now, I must share some bad news.  Both Asche and Reardon have transferred to the great sandbox in the sky.  I was friends with David for many years on Facebook.  Jim and I got back in touch right after I got out inn '79 and remained close friends until his demise about 10 years ago.  I hope your health is improving.  I know it takes a long time.  I'm recovering from prostate cancer, but doing quite well.

Later.
