Hi Alin,

I am retired from my paying job like Grumpy but I get to “work” all day with my three and four year old grandsons. I get to act and play like a 4 year old again and nobody thinks anything strange of it. (But I don’t object too strenuously when their mothers take them home in the afternoons).

It does limit my woodworking time as I wouldn’t dream of letting these two very active and inquisitive young men around any of my power tools but we do get to do some small projects together. I would try to teach them how to hand cut dovetails but I still need to learn this myself and, knowing them as I do, they probably would end up teaching me.

Do I like my current “job”? The answer is a resounding YES. This is absolutely the most satisfying job I have ever held. I don’t recommend it for the money (none, of course) but the hugs I get and seeing their day-to-day developments are priceless.
