Old and New
« on: August 17, 2005, 03:20 AM »
Never did this so thought I better. Been around since March 12, 2004, but never filled this out. My name is Jay, I'm 40 and I left a successful business career in 2003 to teach, which is what I do now. I teach 6th grade and am licensed to teach 1-12 (elementary and secondary).
Anyway, been collecting since about 95 and love Star Wars. I have been going through a change though in my collecting as I took most of the OTC off, since I open and only bought new stuff I liked. Same with ROTS. After ROTS ends, I may really back off on collecting, diverse my interests (hiking, camping, fishing, and especially being with my wife of 17 years and our 12 and 11 year old children) and work on customizing, something I've wanted to do for some time.
Been very lucky in my time in both FL and Utah in collecting in that I have found most of what I want. Love the site!

Hey Jay, thanks for the formal introduction here finally!  ;)  Good to semi-officially meet you.  Funny, that I was just talking to Dp on the phone today, as you were standing right next to him in the parking lot.  :P

Glad you're enjoying the site.  Holler if you need anything, or have any questions!  See ya' around the boards here...

Good for you!  I love teachers -- one of the most difficult and underated jobs out there (right along with stay-at-home parents -- but I am biased :))

Hey, it's great to have a formal introduction - welcome!

Don't worry about being 40, we've got guys around here that are waaaaay older than that.   ;)

Yeah, but they're all Canadian and well preserved by the cold. :P
