[Paris TX] Classes offered at Paris Jr. College


#1

I spent the day driving to Paris Texas and looking over the physical
plant classrooms and labs ) at the school for Jewelry Technology at
Paris Texas. I was very impressed !!! I am considering moving to that
area of north Texas and the classes and other oportunities offered
look fun, and If I can get the State of Texas to foot the bill for my
tuition and tools as part of my retraining ( due to physical
disabilities and forced medical retirement) I WILL BE SINGING AND
DANCING ( USING A CANE TO HELP) It was caused by my driving by my old
place of employment and I could not restrain myself, I had to run away
from home for the day. If any one has any thing to sugest or comment
on, I would be glad to listen to them. I am ready for a change, as I
have already had a name change to reflect my change of status. ( old
name - Robert ) ( new ame - ROBB ) ROBB - Retired Old Baby

Hello Robb: Paris is a great school! I went in 1981-84. A classmate
from then is now the instructor of watch repair, Frank Poye. If I were
you, I would look into becoming a watchmaker. Watchmakers are much
more scarce than jewelers and can command a much higher salary. I took
both watchrepair and jewelry, but it has been so long since I have
done any watch repair that I would have to learn all over again.

That is a thought,Michael, As far as becoming a watchmaker, I have
worked with cogs, gear and wheels which were as tall as myself and
weighed as much as a small car. If I kept telling myself that the
principal was the same, only the scale was changed . I am
considering this and have mentioned to my sweetie about the prospect
of geting rehab money to foot the bill and working part time when I
have finished . Thank You for the thought, but even more, for the
encouragement . Respectfuly ROBB.
