Trained as a civil engineer, top 3% of a class of 650+, 17th to be exact.
But decided to return to the family farm, did that for 30 years and retired at 55. DW was my right-hand "man", driving combine, grain truck, and whatever else needed to be done.
Ran an auto body business out of the farm workshop in the winter, eventually specializing in restoring early 70's Mopars. Owned two of the rarest 71 Chargers in existance.
After retiring, restored the old farm house, and now just tinker around on our acreage.
And yes, retirement is pretty good!
