Probably required the combined intellect of the male brain trust at your school!!!

Of course, for ten or fifteen years, few people knew my actual address. My mail went to the office (in another state), my utilities were not in my name, my neighbors knew only my first name, my cars were tagged at non-current addresses (most of that time), and my friends who did know where I lived and my last name knew better than to share that information. It was liberating. Had the Secret Service agents been looking for me, rather than my roommate, they would have never tracked me down (stupid roomie and his loud-mouthed but well-intentioned buddies). I have wondered how many errant letters calling me for jury duty may have ended up at some former or fictitious address.

Nowadays, i'm easier to find but better armed and prepared.
Never got called till I was 55 years old. Been called 3 years in a row now. Just to give you an idea, I told the court clerk I'd volunteer for jury duty every year. It's a week off work. Work vs. jury duty? Jury duty! That'll tell ya something right there.

Outstanding! Mine was at 15 in 1975, and I had almost 3 years of "practice" before that...

Cinder, any man who acts petty about being outdone in a field that for many years was dominated by men, is not a man, but a spoiled child. they feel threatened about their manhood. i don't. i have been at it for almost thirty years now, and if you are better than i am, then i applaude and respect your abilities. but never do i feel threatened. i am very secure in my manhood!

here's a question, would they be jealous or angry if you were a man andwere performing at the same level a you are? probably not! don't sweat it and let them act like the children they are. many of us here are proud of what you are doing and have lots of respect for you. give 'em hell Cinder!

We've been telling you that for quite a while now, but it is more gratifying coming from the instructor! Keep on keepin on, Cinder!
