      I work in state government in the field of economic research.  The pay is so-so, but the benefits are good.

            I tie knots.



            Thomas works at a carpet factory making carpet backing. He operates a

            machine that takes a bunch of spools of plastic thread and winds it

            onto a 30 ft reel that goes on a loom. When the thread breaks he

            stops the machine and ties the broken ends back together

            With the lottery I get all the exercise I need.

                              In futility.

              Well, that is certainly more explanatory than "I tie knots" - thanks!

                  I am a Gemini......which means I do many things.

                  Officially, I am retired.  I have been a Director of Real Estate Training, a graphic artist designing CD covers for musicians(mostly out of the Seattle music community), a Compact Disc Store Owner.......................and a mommy and wife.  My most fulfilling job: being the mom and watching my children grow into great young adults.

                  Now, I am retired and I compose Paintings (Oil and Acrylic) for a hobby as well as for $$$$....mostly though I just give them away to my friends and family.......

                  So what do I do for a living right now....nothing much....I am OFFICIALLY RETIRED!!!  And I love it.  I can now work on my lottery hobby.  Someday (I am getting kinda old now to do it but I might), I would like to open an art gallery for unknown artists......just might do that someday.

                    stops the machine and ties the broken ends back together



                    Not exactly. It's one spool, about 12 feet long, it has 4068 plastic threads on it each 70,000 feet long. It fits on the back of a loom. When the loom runs out, I put another 12 foot spool in it and tie 4068 threads so it will have a continuous sheet of carpet backing. A machine does this, of course, I just set up the machine.



                    Okay, now I believe you can predict lottery numbers

                      TC is definitely not a minister.

                             US Merchant Marine . Been out about 20 months or so due to an accident on a ship enroute from Djibouti , East Africa to Houston , Texas. Plan to return to work hopefully before the end of this year. 



                            Found out yesterday I may be released from the Docs on June 19th, about a month from now to go back to sailing again. Been a long haul in recovering.

                             

                             Good Luck,

                            Blackie.

                              Thomas,

                              That hardly seems possible, unless you got that title as some kind of ruse.

                              I do have a good memory for these things, and I know (for example) that you were even for removing "God" from the Pledge of Allegance.  Also, the "when pigs fly" image (as I recall) has some meaning or significance other than an innocent lottery reference, right?

                              To each their own, but I just wanted to set the record straight.

                              What grade did your lottery earn?
