The next 13 with IBM. During my time with IBM I was transferred to Cary, NC. I purchased my second home in nearby Sanford, NC. Soon afterwards I was introduced to Vickie, a second grade school teacher and native North Carolinian. We were married in October of 1988.
After leaving IBM I worked at a couple of short term jobs before going to work in road construction. Yes I'm the guy whose lines you tracked.
I got out of that racket in February of 06 to have time with my family and take better care of my health. We aren't as young as we once were and 60, 70, and 80 hour weeks take a toll.
Now I am in charge of maintenance for 68 apartments in Pittsboro that belong to Evergreen Construction. Evergreen owns about 40 apartment complexes around the state and is a good place to work. So long as nothing is broken I don't have much to do. If something breaks I look at it to see if it is something I can fix or if I need to call someone in to do it.
I spend much of my free time now days working with the Silk Hope Ruritan Club in Silk Hope, NC. We are a non-profit community service organization that works on local projects. Every Labor Day weekend we have an Old Fashioned Farmer's Day. It is a two day event where we demonstrate how many things were done in the past. Our newest exibit is a Grist Mill that operated about 50 miles from where it is now located. It was built it 1845 and was shut down in 1951. We have moved and restored it. It ground it's first corn since 1951 in late April. Our money goes to things like sponsoring local scout troups, small scholarships for local students, and now raising money to build a new community building in Silk Hope. The fire station/community building the Ruritans built many years ago is being torn down by the county to build a bigger fire station. They aren't going to replace the community building.
