    I used to be a grainger industrial supply employee for 25 years. I did everything from assistant manager to sales rep to inventory specialist. I got to help people in every facet of industry from schools to the Hyatt.

    I truly enjoyed helping people get thier everyday shit done, I was pretty good at it when my stroke and three brain surgeries hit last year, now the future is tossed in the wind. I have little control.

    Besides all the people I've met, that has been the true gold. Also fun to see the inside of working places of places like San onofre power plant and the Santa Ana women's jail.

    Mostly I liked just helping people.

    I had a stroke and three brain surgeries less than two years ago.

    This changed everything. I am lucky to have lived at all.

    So Now what?

    Used to work at grainger industrial supply. 20 plus years. Many hats. Facilty managers loved me, still do.

    Now I am going to use it all for something else. Helping others. That is my plan.

    Pinball will always be in the lobby, no matter what I do.
