Don Meixner What does a mudcatter do? (149* d) RE: What does a mudcatter do? 08 Jan 99


Originally I was employed as a boatbuilder where I built commercial fishing vessels 32' to 110' . After an injury which nearly destroyed my right wrist I became a builder and susequently, a designer of housing and special equipment for people with disabilities in Central New York. Somewhere along the way on this job I ran my left hand through a table saw and had to have hours of finger reconstruction and digit reconnective surgery. Somehow, by Gids good grace and Dr. Walter Shorts skill I am able to still play guitar and banjo. I play in an Irish Rebel Band in Syracuse, NY where I am the resident Scot and voice of reason among three Irish guys who can sing a song OK. The bands been together for 25+ years. Over all this time I am a silversmith, carrying on my Dad's tradition and business.

I find it intersting to note that it now takes three jobs to get you by when previously two were adequate.
