For those still out here, I want to say Hooray! We made it. I've not ventured forth from the house yet, so I don't know about the rest of the world. The trash truck and school bus came by, so at least some folks were lucky with us.
Now time for updates.
As you recall, I was making decisions on going back to school. Well I finally decided. Money was a big factor. Hard to go to school with no tuition funds. They don't really mind you hanging out in the hallways, using the soda and candy machines, but they don't like you sitting inside listening to them without paying for the chair. I guess I could have brought my own chair, but then they'll come up with something different.
As I became a jack of all trades after service, I didn't use any GI Bill funds. Now with the Veterans Retraining programs coming back, I am eligible and got approved. So after all these years, Uncle Sam and you (tax dollars) are finally letting me back into the classroom. I also received approval for student loans (which I pay for). I'm gonna get a degree!!!
I'm going to learn Air Conditioning and Heating. With my background in electronics (missile and communications) I will be able to get a job anywhere I go. I'll be able to get away from Govt. bases and big cities. Maybe pay off the house and get out of debt.
School starts January. Will be in class at 7:30 in the morning. Hadn't been awake and attentive that early in the morning in years. Trying to shift my schedule now. Nodding off at 3 in the afternoon.
Gotta work on that part.
Well before I sign off;
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and anything else you need to say. I hope everyone has a Very Happy and Prosperous New Year.
