Nathon Damron began working as a plumber with his father on the weekends. It was Los Angeles and even the stars have plumbing problems although Damron didn't want to give names, in case they read the Forum, he did share a story about a couple of short actors that are married, one was in "Cheers" and one was in "Taxi," that had a rule that when working at their home the plumbers could not look at or talk to them.

Another actress with the initials S.J.P. from "Sex and the City" was not very nice and only fed her dogs lettuce. After a tour of duty in Iraq, the Damron family eventually moved to Bakersfield where Damron worked for the Sheriff's Office and they vacationed several times on the Olympic Peninsula. One day the Damrons asked themselves, "What are we doing? There must be a better place to live." And they began thinking about moving to Washington.

Eventually Damron's wife got a job as a teacher at Forks Elementary. After talking to former plumber John Anderson, Damron decided to start the process of transferring his plumber's license to Washington which he describes as a "nightmare."  Since starting his plumbing business things have been busy and the Damron family really likes Forks.
