Starting with me : on top of seeing patients every week, I also work for a consulting firm.

I guess I am a complete workaholic :-)

According to the Navy, I was medically repairable. My medical repair consisted of my saying I felt just fine at my weight and height and was willing to go through boot camp and get to sailing the seas.

4 more days from now will be my 2nd anniversary of "retirement". I have never regretted taking the plunge and have been enjoying each and every day. I recommend it for everyone who is thinking about one more year.

After reading all the James Herriot books I can't pass a cow without an urge to rush over and thrust my arm up its backside.

Well, you did ask....

Yep, little chance of walking past a cow here. it's those vacations in the Yorkshire Dales that are re-igniting the urges

My idea of being organic is taking a dump in the woods.

I made $7600 the year my husband left me (20 years ago). Although I didn't qualify for the full gamut of welfare, I gladly accepted WIC and reduced daycare. Without it I would not be where I am today. It took awhile for me to get back on my feet. I was and still am grateful for the safety net.

I ran with the bulls in Pamplona multiple times. I was young then. It seemed like a good idea at the time.

Tin - that is what the safety net is for. Don't feel bad. I personally think being really, really broke at some point in one's life is actually a good thing. It sharpens the focus. Congrats with being able to overcome a sh*tty situation and prospering.

I'd be more concerned (and ROTFLMAO) if you couldn't resist succombing to that urge.

I watched my uncle do that one time after a cow birthed and all of the after birth did not come out. That had happened before and he called a vet to do the same thing. I watched that, too. My uncle learned from the vet and did it himself the next time.
