Other Comments:
After retiring from American Airlines in 1995, I worked as office manager for friends who owned 3 Port of Subs sandwich shops.  Then I helped out another friend as office manager of Casino Gaming School.  When the Las Vegas Gladiators came to town, I worked for them as Operations Manager.  Great people to work with and a fun job!!!  I also worked several years at House of Blues as a production runner.  It was a lot of fun until they, because of insurance requirements, required the performers to use taxi or limo transportation.  When I could no longer transport them in my vehicle, I bailed.
