    I retired my City P&D Position march 5th Of this Year. The same day i started my new Full time Job as a City Transit Bus driver for Valley Transit in the City of Appleton Wi. Its a Great alternative to Peddling Freight and its One of The Last Teamster Jobs available from the city with a Pension and Free Health care. Hopefully i can do it for 5 years before i retire from Driving for good.

    Kerosene was invented a day or two before my time. It was clear back then.
