The dream is what you make it.
I just lazed around for a while and that got old.
Helped a friend build an airplane. That was interesting and fun, but the project got finished, on to something else. Tried something entirely out of character and was a car salesman. For a month. Oh, well, now I know why I didn't pick a career in sales.
I kinda went against the grain on the ER forum and ended up with a job for now but - and this is hugely
important - I also have my KMA hat and a poor attitude about jumping through hoops for the good of the company. The people I work with are good folks, the commute is an enviable 3.4 miles, and the hours suit me.
But I also have good health, a nice home, a wife who (astonishingly after 21 years!) still thinks I'm "the best thing that's ever going to happen" to her, a Suzuki C90T motorcycle, a little fishin' boat, and zero debt.
So life is good.
