Thankfully I’m off the treadmill at such an early age – and there isn’t anyway for anyone to embezzle me out of such a sum of money. Yes we’ve sure found such a great community here, too bad the rest of the world thinks that (or doesn’t think, but just goes on) keeping up with the Joneses is neccessary.

I may gripe I”m busy, but most of my “projects” are of my own doing (though I’ll blame my muse and over active imagination) I keep reading about all these Farmers pushing 70 and 80, not retiring because nobody wants to take over the farm, and they want to make sure the land isn’t sold off for real estate. I know it’d be a hard life, but, like John, to live and work on the same plot of land is an intruiging proposition. And while I may get lonely for human contact, with friends visiting, and spening time with my fellow jocks online, at least I’d be subjecting myself to the people and attitudes that matter most to me.

Sorry to hear about such a commute there Mot, but at least you’re in the right place mentally, and it sounds like your kids get it too – once your son forgets his new vocabulary lesson!
