Been lifting all my life, started young bailing hay (90 pound square bales) in the sixties. Still throwing hay, 70's I set mobile homes, we used concrete blocks & pads back then. Bailed a lot of hay also. Late 70's & early 80"s Oil field work, Mid 80's till '06 threw a lot of fertilizer & feed bags, farm work, physical labor, lots of lifting. Hay bailing not as much, make 'im round now days My sciatic nerve gets pinched once in a while, very aggravating, I aint young anymore but I keep on ticking. My friends tell me I'm a tough ol' fart.
I started this appliance business 2 years ago, at the urging of friends, cause I have been repairing all my life, do repairs on most everything. Gave up farming2006. Been working for a grocery chain for the last six years throwing potatoes as I say. Do it for the health insurance they provide for my family. Goal is to be prosperous enough to solo 100% & afford the health insurance.
