Tom took a correspondence course in electronics, not sure what exactly he does now, but Jim sure is impressed. Jim stayed in the old neighborhood, working at the metal forming shop- hence the missing fingers.
I used to think about doing one of the courses that Sally Struthers used to tout during the afternoon movie in the 70’s. There were just too many to choose from! I was hoping they would have a program that would help me get a job writing afternoon movie reviews.
