Re: What Is Your Age?

Howdy Iron Worker,

Interesting name, is that what you do to buy the groceries? Tough job,
be very careful my friend.

Yes, we only pass this way once, so it's best not to hurry.
After you retire, if what was fun becomes work, it may be time to move on.
Some one always has something they would like you to do.

Well I have a rifle to sight in and shoot for score. After that I need to reload
a bunch of rounds.

I hung up my tool belt a year and a half ago. Now I'm a retired Iron worker. I live here in Reno NV and would like to start a 2nd career ? I just moved I need to set up my loading bench. Today is the Nevada Caucus I'll be doing my American duty this morning. ..... Sight that rifle in and may you win that match.

Re: What Is Your Age?

Second career ? I did that. Bought 10 acres in the high desert of Central Oregon. Set it up to raise meat goats to feed the starving masses. Forgot one vital thing, the starving masses don't have any money. Oh well I have enough fertilizer for my rather large garden to last several years. Now if I can figure out, what do do with the other eight dry land acres.

Maybe I'll raise Jack rabbits and coyotes. Or as the new generation pronounces it "Coyoteeeees". Thanks W.D. and Sat morn TV.

I'm not shooting matches yet. I just want to see what kind of holes this
7mm will punch. This club has about a match every two weeks later in the
spring.

I used to think that too, my first wife ensured that I will work until I am at least 66. I just turned 58 so I still have a few years of work left.

Luckily, good health runs in my family so I can still do whatever I want, even if it may not be as fast as I want.

Re: What Is Your Age?

One thing about getting older. Time has a habit of speeding up and in no
time at all you will be 65. In hardly a recognizable flash, you will cellebrate
your 70th birthday. Time goes even faster after that.

You don't have to act your age either, that's up to you. I seem to find new
interesting projects every where I look.

Just be sure that you take some time to smell the roses and enjoy the
warmth of the sun and your friends along the way.


In the meantime shoot them in the middle.
