    So, I finally got a job! Yay!

    A good one too! Yay!

    I'm an Engine Mechanic at a local engine shop. Today I spent the day tearing an engine out of a '96 Jeep Cherokee Sport that had thrown a rod.

    And I now know how nice those hydraulic car lifts are. No more laying on the ground for me! :D

    I only had one problem today, and I have a new respect for my old BMW.

    When I took the engine out of my '79 BMW I complained because I had to buy a special curved "c" or "s" wrench to reach a bolt. Well that was nothing compared to the stupid Jeep!

    I swear every single bolt on that stupid thing is a different size, and it that wasn't enough they had to go and throw those stupid Torx bolts into it. One of them on the transmission was such a pain to get to that is took me about an hour to remove it.

    Stupid Jeeps...

    Anyways, I mainly just glad to be working again. Not to mention at an awesome job doing something I like! :D

    Right on, brother!!!!:saweet: Don't take it for granted that you are making money doing something you actually enjoy. Most of us do what we do out of necessity, not love.

    I envy you, and I make really good coin at my job.....
