Not exactly a dirty job but it's what I do!
I work for Kawasaki part time with Consumer Events as an escort rider with the demo rides and I also work the IMS shows. I'm the middle guy, this was taken at the Houston IMS show a couple years ago.
I retired from my real job (power plant operator) almost six years ago and Kawasaki hired the wife and I a year later. We "work" about a week a month all across the country.

Since I don't have any good pictures of me actually working here's one of me reenlisting my first tour



And here is what I actually fix (not fly on, just fix). It's the biggest one on the left.

I dont have any real pics of my work, just this one.


I manage a ski shop at a Massachusetts ski resort in the winter time. Behind me, (and my amazing cinnabun!) you can see part of my store.
I am 100 yards away from the lifts. Really makes a slow day of work go by faster.


I the summer, I work in the patio furniture division of the business. Some days are busy, but summer is slow. Sometimes hot summer days call for a quick power nap in the warehouse.


In the summer I also run a lawn maintenance company part time. Been doing it since I was 10 or so.

probies

It's not me, but we're initiating a couple of new probies on the job. We do this to all the new guys, telling them we want a picture of them on their first day on the job. Then we put a couple of guys on the roof with 5 gallon buckets of water. Got a bunch of these photos. Funny every time!

I would say Hamie is financially secured.

Was a seagoing Captain. Now a consultant for an oil and gas major.
At work in office (the clean side)


The dirty side (do what it that to keep these babies running and the rig drilling)

Good eye! Actually, it's the trainer version, the T-38. It's a 2 seater version. We don't fly F-5's any more.
