    It is plain to see that we in the Brotherhood come from all walks of life. It is nice to know that we all have something in common with so many others. I was wondering what you guys and gals do between fishing trips? I work for a quality assurance company in Louisiana. We work mainly on equipment for the oil & gas industry. We verify that these companies are building the equipment to industry standards. This can be very frustrating at times, but it has to be done so I can go fishing and the bills get paid. Let the Brotherhood know what it is that you do.

    I repair vending/fountain machines for Coca Cola and I make ends meet by living on a "written budget" and spending less than I make. :big_smile:

    i am a licensed post treatment plant engineer. i peel pine wood post for fencing, pressure treat them with CCA or ACQ to perserve them. you know keep bugs, mold, and rot from destroying them. when they are treated, they will last about 40 years. not a fun job, but it pays the bills.

    I serve cocktails wines and spirits at a local watering hole. Being a 3am bar I'm always the one who gets the blame for getting you waisted

    VERY CAREFULLY! LOL:lol: We have a very tight written budget with just a little wiggle room. Usually used up by the electric bill:sad2: . I have everything written down & added up to the penny! I was thrilled when my oldest daughter got off her formula, WIC never supplied enough & we had to buy it. That stuffis expensive! LOL Now I am working on the toilet training thing for both my girls.... the savings on diapers monthly will actually allow us to pay off some bills & hopefully start getting out of the hole we are in! OOOOH I can't wait! LOL:lol:
