Subject: RE: What does a mudcatter do?
From: Jack Hickman
Date: 11 Jan 99 - 12:09 AM

From the present backwards: Currently operate a small tour guide business, also in receipt of a Federal Government pension which allows me to enjoy a large measure of independence. Prior to that I was the Regional Chief of Security and Investigations for the Federal Corrections Service, and for 25 years prior to that I was a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Also in my spare time I administer the affairs of a Ceili Band as well as play the bodhràn in the band.

Keep the Faith.

The first two are what I wish I could spend more time on, the last is what puts food on the table. I used to love my work, but these days it seems like the earth is losing the battle and we scientists haven't been able to help much...which is why I turn to music. My idea of heaven is hiking up a mountain and then singing to the view. I read somewhere that the earth is full of songs and all it asks in return us that you sing to it.

I'm an electrical engineer/computer programmer in a psychatric research laboratory - no really.

Married 10 years to first wife. Father of two. (Boy-6, Girl-4 weeks [No I am NOT getting enough sleep thank you very much])

I indulge 3 passions outside work and family life.

In reverse order of preference they are...

#3 Cooking

#2 Folk Music

#1 BASEBALL (fan not player)

Right now it is the dead of winter. For me its like what Hall-of-Fame 2nd basemen Rogers Hornsby once said of his singular devotion to the game.

"People ask me what I do in the winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait till spring."

Instead of staring out the window I cook, listen to folk music and do Mudcat.

Only 4 weeks till pitchers and catchers report to spring training. Hallelujah!

Hi, Mary Ann - are you my sister Mary Ann the school librarian? There's no Mary Ann listed in the list of Mudcatteers, and your name wasn't entered in the message you posted, so I think your registration didn't "take" - or maybe you're not using the computer you used to register. Try registering again. If you use two computers, use the "reset cookie" link on the forum menu and enter the e-mail address you used to register. That should take care of it. bbc is duly registered.
So, are you my sister? If you are, it's about time you showed up here.

AS this is the first post i've made have read just a few postings but would first like to take this oppurtunity to thank that rustic rebel for turning me on to this site. Thank you Rustic Rebel AKA shakey leg.
    I myself at the age 45 still have my life long dream of cutting an album one day of my own lyrics and music. Perhaps if just a pipe dream, still dream./
       And if reality is perception and/or if perception is reality or how one interpites the pararells. Is still at this point still and idea.
      As for this mudhead i help make parts for a company that makes polaris snowmoblies and ATVS so the apressores can enjoy playing with there false idols plastic cards and continue to disside what there interpation of fun is./ As they continue to MAKE me work 5-12 hour days to make there fun possible.,
    But if we are truely of freewill i choose happy and nothing else is an option and i'll continue to play my guitar, banjo. and harps when i find i have the time or energy. A spirit that more times than not feels lonely but knows he is never alone and we are all children of the earth school. And we are only limited to the boundries of the imagination. Stay free and enjoy and again thanks rustic rebel.

I entertain old people in old peoples homes. The occasional gig in pubs - I need to do a bit more of that.
I was a teacher - however an inability to teach anybody anything hampered me in this career. Then I was a country and western singer with a band. then I had a novelty hit record in Germany. Had a recording studio. Did a few more teaching contracts. Gigged a few more pubs and this old folks gig is what I will do til I either write another commercial song, or drop off the perch and start a worm farm, as the poet says.

best wishes to you all in all your endeavours
