Name: Mark Nelson
Town: Boyceville, Wisc.
Job in "retirement"/Second career: saddle maker
Former job: 30 years with the postal service
Why I love my job: Nelson's passion is historic re-enactment and Cowboy Action Shooting. "I wanted to know how to make saddles for my own use, but realized that I had to make some money at it, too."
