What are you doing now:
I retired from Qwest Communications in 2000 after 36 1/2 years.  In 2002, I went back to work part time for the Idaho Transportation Department and retired from there in 2007.  Now I spend a lot of time on the computer and with my wife and kids.  My two sons and I like to spend time bass fishing on the Snake River in the spring and fall.
