My Part-time Job

2013-07-19 08.44.28

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.
