This goes to making and keeping the American aviation industry one of the safest in the world and copied by many other countries.

Yeah I have used the " I'm from the government and I'm here to help you" line before,but only as a light hearted way to perhaps break the ice when dealing with some individuals who might be a little nervous dealing with a FAA inspector for the first time. Sometimes it helped and sometimes it didn't.

So I guess my point is that not all government agencies are bad IMO.
I never intended my post in a negative way B47. That's why I put the grin at the end of it. I used it in a "wink wink" sort of way.

I too perform a valuable and much needed service.

Retired after 36 years in route sales for major snack food company. I now work part time driving school bus 20 hrs/wk and every other weekend driving shuttle bus at a local ski resort. I have holidays, spring break, snow days and summers off. This doesn't feel like work, but I still get paid for it.
Dw still has a year to go till retirement as an EMT.

I think we have paid into your retirement plan - Frito-Lay are about the only chips/dips we buy.

I work in the oilfield to get that stuff out of the ground that keeps everybody able to get down the road.
My wife and I also own a software and website design company that she runs. The last of 3 kiddos graduated from college last May and is currently in the process to be a fireman. It's our time to roam around and "glamp" in comfort.

I see you call Laredo home - is there oil there or do you commute to Midland/Odessa for work?

No commute for me. I've been down here for 15 years mostly gas drilling but the Eagle Ford shale took off in 2009 so now it's pretty much all oil drilling. We have crews in the Permian though.
We're in the process though of moving to San Antonio. The company I work for wants me to move there and be a manager at the new yard.They gave me a complete move package so what the heck. It just screws up our spring travel plans though.
