I was raised by my Grandparents after my Dad ran off & my Dad checked out permanently! This was a odd upbringing, because they were both 50 years older than I was, & had no way of relating to me.
They had raised kids before, but based on my dad’s behavior they didn’t do the best task, did they? With no other recourse, I had to transport down south to stay with them.
They had just moved into a retirement community in Cocoa Beach, Florida, and it was a absolutely nice, tranquil site to live, but I was the only teenager in the whole area! All of our neighbors were love my Grandparents, & moved to Cocoa to retireâ€¦ On the plus side, I made a lot of extra currency doing chores for the old folks of Cocoa Beach & managed to save up a tidy sum of currency. I rarely got a chance to spend that currency because I couldn’t drive yet, & there wasn’t a lot for a kid my age to do in Cocoaâ€¦ At least the beaches were nice. That was where I met Buck, an older girl who had retired after 40 years as an Heating, Ventilation, & A/C dealer, but she was enjoying her retirement in Cocoa, but still itched to do Heating, Ventilation, & A/C service work from time to time, and buck hired myself and others to be her Heating, Ventilation, & A/C assistant, & over the course of the next more than one years she gave myself and others an education on the industry. It’s because of Buck, & my afternoons in Cocoa Beach, that I am currently a successful Heating, Ventilation, & A/C dealer.
