bob schwarer BS: What Do You Do In Real Life? (123* d) RE: BS: What Do You Do In Real Life? 08 Jul 02

I retired about 3-4 years ago. I guess now it is a terminal condition.

Graduated from U of Wisconsin with a BS in Chemical Engineering. Worked at things from synthetic fibers to fertilizer to waste water treatment for providing cooling water for a power plant.

Back in the '40s kids(14 or 15) could get a job in the local cannery during the summer. Jerry, do you remember the old Fall River/Libby cannery on the south end of town? One of the best years was 1944 when we had a lot of German POW's there. Sure learned a lot that summer.

Someone has recently written a book about "Stallag Wisconsin". I need to get a copy of it. Probably could tell a few tales for a Part 2.

Spend much of the summers now at the ball park. Class A Lakeland Tigers and major league spring training.
