No guarantee on that Rick. Only guarantee is that this lifetime ends, usually abruptly. Live big now, do the stuff you've always wanted to do NOW. Always lots of reasons "why not," but that only buys you regret. No how you suppose an ageing, desert dwelling rat know something like that. That's why I'm building the theater.
As a matter of fact a facebook friend reminded me about building a storefront theater in my home town where they built platforms for the stage. I'd forgotten how cool I thought that was...the origin of my desire to do the same thing.
What's on your bucket list Rick? Pick some and get on with it my friend. Glad you are doing the CNC, you've been thinking about it for years. But you probably don't want it in an uninsulated shop, right?
Iím looking at potential getting a job with one of our contractors and the meeting is tomorrow. But that will throw a huge wrench into everything, as they had mentioned they need someone right away .
Ideally Iíd like to start the job oct 1, that way I could work on my house and shop and get it done .
I seen the bucket truck they have in the yard here , and itís not the type youíd use for an old man . I prefer the bucket at the rear ,so you can load your tools easily and get in easily .
Maybe they will have a better one available,but beggars canít be choosers .
Iíd much rather get the shop up and running , and make carvings etc . I donít need to make a ton of money, just enough to keep the lights on .
But working for another year and a half would take me to 60 years old , and I could take Canada pension plan early .
So this is a tough call .
Personally, in my heart Iíve had enough . Iíd really like to be at home at this point ,and Iím really liking the thought of having some freedom .
Iíve only been retired for one day so far lol
