Retired 2003 and have liked this job better than any other that I have had. Have a great boss that understands it when I don't feel like working, he never complains when I want to take an afternoon nap. If I am late to start working that is okay with him. I quit early some days and that is okay.
For those of you looking to retire let me tell you its great.
Have been around wood working for all my life. Grew up with a Dad that did woodworking. He worked on the side while serving with our National Guard full time. Have one brother that has made his living doing wood work and still does to this day. He like myself has some years on him and he has had to slow down a lot.
My interest now in my woodworking is first and foremost to keep me active and busy while trying to make a few extra bucks to help make ends meet. After having cancer and a few other health problems it seems most all my income goes to doctors or hospitals.
I have a lot to be thankful for and sure want spend a lot of time complaining about the past or my problems. I realize that God has given me a little talent and its up to me to make ends meet with his help and hopefully friends that are willing to pass on information about me and my work.
Looking forward to making a lot of friends on this site and one thing i like is having friends.
God bless and thanks
