    Funny isn't it? It's kinda like a person with curly hair wants it straight or vice versa. I don't "need" to work but sometimes I just miss it.

    Yeah, the grass is always greener “over there”.

    Some days I wish I had no hair but I know the average bald guy wishes he had my hair. Just the hair though, not what’s underneath it.

    But I’m not much of a working man. The less time I have to spend working, the better. If I’d win the lottery I’d quit the same day.

    What I can’t understand is people who are in good health, live in a free country and have enough money yet still are bored. That does not compute with me.

    I love reading, playing golf, birdwatching, hiking, skiing (now mostly only cross country as my knees are not really up to downhill although I still get out a couple of times a year and am reminded why I don't do it more often) I volunteer with helping "old folks" and still I miss "working". Oh BTW I am mostly bald and don't pine for the lost locks. 😉

    It's usually a good idea to do some "investigating" before one jumps, headlong, into any occupation. Apparently you found this out the hard way. I do hope you learned a lesson.

    Come to Colorado and become an apprentice butcher. Hard work, little pay and danger everywhere.

    Alright that sounds like something I could do as long as there are no knives, cleavers or blood involved.

    He probably fights at the local pub after work.

    Don't butchers wear mesh gloves on the hand not using the sharp instruments?

    Enjoying "good health" and living "in a free country" with "enough money" may produce comfort and stimulation for the moment but it doesn't last. Wealthy celebrities commit suicide. Without capacity for life and love there is no happiness.
