    I did gay porn back in the 80's.
    I'm not gay though, it just paid well.

    From the time I was 18 I was in the national guard. I was a heavy equipment operator with a class B license. Worked construction mostly till I was 40, then got my class A on my own.

    Been doing flats ever since. Most at home at a job site of any sort

    How did you know? You got top secret clearance? Also, note two negatives make a positive.
