Props to my Pops
By day, he works as a regional sales guru for a salt co, but has recently found himself with some time on his hands, the desire to do something cool & the
time to roll in some $$.
He's got a moonlighting gig plowing, salting, dei-cing, etc the runways & roads at JFK Airport when it snows. He says it's the coolest thing ever driving old diesel trucks with air brakes & 30ft wide plow blades, whatever those salting/sanding trucks are that dispense stuff all over the road for hours at a time. Its almost like superhero deal too b/c they only call him in when it snows.
How cool is it that he gets to drive around on the runways and stuff?!
Sort of a supressed subURBAN farmer my dad can be. He lets it out at times,with stuff like this. I think he's been blessed/cursed with the good business sense (& sense of responsibility to provide) as well as the raw need to build/fix/work (actually work -- inertia). If he thought he could have made a living building stuff or fixing stuff, I think he would have.
