If you can do it, I say good for you, and I mean that.

When I was young, I chose a career that was "manly" at the time.  As the years went by, I realized that nobody gave a fuck what I did, but was too proud to pursue something different.

As it turned out, I made a good living for 45 years at my job, stayed healthy due to working outdoors in a tough environment, and was able to pick up a pretty good pension from the company.  This, combined with my Social Security, and what I make on the side(cash only) has worked out really for me.  One good part is that I could do without the "side money" and be just fine.


Thanks for writing all that man, I’m 32 and still trying to figure it all out  Heartflowers

No disrespect, and not to be a Debbie Downer, but at 32, you've got a long way to go if you're working for a living.

Try to find something where you can make big money fast.  Just don't make it by fucking you fellow human being over.

I remember when I was in my 30's.  Life was good, no bad knees from climbing, no divorce(yet), a great couple of kids, and an eye on the pie in the sky.  

Relax, and let it be the best time of your life.............because it is.

I take life as it comes and am a happy person who enjoys all life has to offer
I know I have a long time working
I make a good wage, I mine crypto coins as a hobby which adds to my net income
I have 1.5 good knees, never divorced and no kids

Life is good

I’m not worried about MY life, my worry in life comes from this society we live in.

With your outlook and attitude, you'll do just fine. Trust me.

It's a long old ride down a rough fucking road. Embrace it.

I left workin' for the man in 2007, although I did go back to it for one year in 2014 because I needed a capital injection for another venture.

I spose it's OK.

I guess I'll plead guilty to "working for the man", whatever that might be. I just did what I had to do to make a living, and provide for my beloved family.

No hero shit, just reality.

Forget about your women and that water can, today you're workin' for the man.

I always heard that you see a bright white light when you're on your way out of this world.

This song can be interpreted in many different ways. I prefer to interpret it as how I'd like to leave this world. An ode to those we have loved the most.

I was also born in 1954, Jan

I made mine and then gave it away to a better lawyer than mine!! lol,
I retired from working for others 3 years ago and now I work more than when I was being paid!! lol
BUT, I am about to "maybe" make some more money and be flush again!, LOL

“. . . From Where I Sit, Rust Looks Pretty Good”

Last night I was watching the documentary, “History of The Eagles.”

So, “What’s with the rusty old tractor?” you ask.
One of the things that stood out the most in the Eagles documentary was something Don Henley said near the end, when he referenced a Neil Young quote about quitting before you rust. The reference was about music, or was it?
Most of us who have lived with the music of the Eagles are beginning to feel old and rusty, but Henley put a new perspective on it:

“I don’t see rust as a bad thing. I have an old 1962 John Deere tractor that’s covered in rust, but it runs like a top. You know the inner workings are just fine. To me, that rust symbolizes all the work done and all the experiences gained. From where I sit, rust looks pretty good.”

Last thing I remember, I was
Running for the door
I had to find the passage back
To the place I was before
“Relax, ” said the night man,
“We are programmed to receive.
You can check-out any time you like,
But you can never leave! “

— from the Eagles, “Hotel California”
"We fight for or serve America not because we hate our enemies but because we love our country. We absolutely love the freedoms that we cherish" General Michael T. Flynn.
