I was probably taking exams closing out my first year at college.
Help keep MVS on the web -> click sponsors' links here on MVS when you buy from them.
Also -> Amazon link
. Click that when you go to buy something on Amazon and MVS gets a kickback.

I was working as design engineer for oil field service equipment. I had likely driven my first Volvo to work - a 1975 orange 245 manual 4 speed with K-Jetronic fuel injection.

I was 4 years old and I was probably watching Ghostbusters the animated series. Climbing a tree or crying because my dad forgot to feed me and instead decided to play guitar.
