Re: Part-time work during ER for book

I could do it while the sun was shining.

Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.

The pallbearing service pays $25.

The driver, 1 of the 6 (boss) gets an extra $30.

I did one Tuesday, overcast and drizzly, solid oak, weighed a ton!

Did one today in brilliant sunshine and blue skies, and medium weight. :

Re: Part-time work during ER for book

My dad retired from his full-time job at the phone company at age 65. He then began pallbearing for a local funeral home (1 mile from his house) and worked his way up to limo/hearse driver and continued working there for 15 years until age 80 and only quit because my mother was ill and he needed to be home. He thought it was a great job, the money was good, he met alot of people (some famous) and could basically work when he wanted.

But how many of them were alive?

Sorry, I'm still too busy working for myself/family to take a job. And frankly the idea of having to be around (live) people makes work seem even more onerous.


The book written on, "The Military Guide to Financial Independence and Retirement", on sale now! For more info see "About Me" in my profile.
I don't spend much time here anymore, so please send me a PM. Thanks.
