Kids-2 1 girl 1 boy 15 and 17, they can both field strip and reassemble an AK-47 blindfolded.
Married for 21 years, she can clean and cook game meat.
I hunt, fish, collect and restore and deal full auto and exotic guns, and design and build race car chassis.
I have seven dogs, two useless little lap dogs that belong to the women in the house, four Labradors, two of which are working hunters, and a German Shepard pup that we got five months ago in return for a favor to a friend.
One of my Labradors is a 135 lb. beast that kills everything it can get ahold of that is not related to me, but his favorite is skunks, he's killed over twenty of them and has never been sprayed by one.

killer, you mention a wife who can clean and cook game meat. When I was a kid I always thought I would marry a girl who would hunt with me. Well, I met this girl, fell in love with her, married her, and she don't hunt! But she enthusiastically supports me and my son in it, plus will cook anything I bring to her.

Hey, I won her heart with an oryx steak I was grilling so it was pretty much a given that she was going to be OK!

My wife hunts, and is also a chef, a graduate of the Chicago Institute of Culinary Arts (I think the school has a different name now) it is one of the finer cooking schools in the country. Not bad considering I was living in my truck when I met her.

I don't play, but my brother in law plays for the Chicago Philharmonic Orchestra, and he will only use Ovation guitars.
Very cool. I cannot play much but I consider the workmanship of the guitars to be nothing short of art. I use to be the VP of the Victory Motorcycle Club and our web guy is the founder of the Ovation Fan Club site. He is the one who turned me on to them. He has a personal museum of 80 or so Ovations and a few Neal Mosers 10-strings.

Here's a mental picture for you IL Plumber - you are still baaadddd :eek:)

Age - If a woman tells her age, she'll tell you anything. Leave it at old enough to know better.

Years in trade-6 (3 as owner, 3 as employee)

Husband has been in the trade for 20+ years and is a Master Plumber - not providing exacts as it will make others want to guess my age

4 Kids (the youngest is 7) 1 Son, 3 daughters

Married - happily! Seems like yesterday, though it was years ago.

Jobs I've Had - Worked in the construction industry my entire adult life. (Service electrician, plumbing contractor (residential / commercial / industrial), Design build GC, public works GC, last 4 years owner of plumbing company and with a lot of hard work my last career stop. Hope to build it up to the point of being to sell it for real money.

What I do for fun- I run a business - there is no time for fun. Seriously - Boating, beach, reading (mainly trade publications), making money, spend time with family, and work. I love the industry and I love my job. My plumbers are not just employees, but friends.

Pets - None - Been there, done that!

Mental picture - I look like my Avatar! Once my digital camera is fixed, I'll post a real picture.

I really thought no one would figure it out. Little bit of make-up and extensive training, I got them to where they will do that. Nothing like a mans best friend:thumbsup:
