This was such a fun project and the owner became like a father to me. It was such a great experience. I worked for him for 7 years but I was married and had a new baby and needed to make more than 10.50 an hour. That has been about 9 years since I left that company.
That sounds a lot like what I did years ago. I had a lot of fun. I met a girl and got married and ended up moving away.
