I started a second small-time career when I took a mobile pro position at Advance Auto Parts in Normal, Illinois. I had been retired from State Farm for less than a year and I was getting tired of staying at home each day. I needed to do something. A friend of mine that worked at Advance put in a good word for me and in April, 2008 I started my new career.
Not much thinking involved and very little stress. Just the way I like it. I take parts from the store to garages around the Bloomington-Normal area. Use their car, listen to the radio and drive on someone else’s dime. Can’t beat that!
I only planned to work till Dolly quit her job. She quit in 2011, but I am still working. My boss at the time I started said I would still be working five years later and I said “No way!” Well here it is 5+ years and I am still at it.
I am close to the end now. This December or very early January, Dolly, Fergie and I will be on a three month RV trip through the Southwest.
