Additional Comments: I keep learning new skills and developing new interests, some of which have become occupations. I think it's one of the reasons I stay "young". Some of the skills were planned; others came out of the blue, like being part of an LAPD surveillance team, and becoming a volunteer Jailer for a drunk driving /gang task force. A first aid class becomes an EMT certification for 25 years, watching people repair my apartment as a child becomes employment as a skilled handyman for a 42-unit apartment complex.
