Still riding the career train of my history, we hit on four stops on the way to what I do now: Organ Salesman (the musical kind), Delivery Driver, Locksmith, and Parent Aid for the Department of Family and Children Services.

This week's Question To Ponder:

If you could commit one crime and knew that you'd get away with it, what would it be?

Not in the car this week, but in my home studio, we'll continue through the muddy mess that has been my working history. I hit on my very short stint as a seller of Honda and Yamaha motorcycles and watercraft, then I stomach through the hell that was my two year run in a small finance office.

I'll also be transparent about the last couple of weeks following my wreck and other stuff life threw at my family that put me in a very bad place mentally for a few days.

No question to ponder this week or review.

We'll take a break from my work history in this episode to do a little therapy. Saturday, June 30th, 2017 was a day that saw me very seriously and very nearly die. I was involved in a nasty crash in I-85 N in Georgia, brought on by inclement weather. Had it happened any other way than it did, I likely would not be here today. As it was, I walked away sore, but for the most part, uninsured. I spend this episode retelling the story and at the end, I include some audio that I had been recording right before the accident.

Stuff To Do Review:

***NOTE***

If you're saying to yourself, "Hey! I just downloaded this. Why is is downloading again like it's a new episode?" or "Hey! I downloaded this and it's not working, but now it's like a new episode of the same episode appeared and I feel like I'm in the Twilight Zone.", fear not. There was sump'n funky that happened when I uploaded the file the first time and it put it on my host something like three times, which meant it took more than half the data space for the month that I pay for. The only solution was to delete everything from the first upload kerfuffle and start over. Now I have the right data space and the world is all good.

Continuing the trek through my career fields, we come to a short stint with Honda/Yamaha of Anderson, SC and the meat of the episode's content - my employment as a Walmart Portrait photographer.

There were a lot of bubbles involved.

I'll also hit on last week's and this week's Question To Ponder and I'll review my Father's Day gift ... The BREO hand massager.
