I use to think in 10 years i would have the house paid off,
kids would be almost on their own by then, i would have a
little spot off in the mountians with a self suficent little cabin,
garden, the works, build other cabins to rent out for income,
sell this house for 3x what we paid (because of the location and
the price we got it at) and retire and enjoy the rest of our life in
obscurity, come to town once a month to load up on goodies and grub
that we couldnt grow.
But after the doc visit last year, *thinking nope a little longer than that*
i see myself 6 feet under, gone from this rock, robbed of the experience
of growing old and enjoying a semi retired life. Hoping i did things right
so the wife and kids will be ok, after all they have a long time to go yet.
shoot i was hoping to at least hit the age of 55, but not looking like thats
going to be a option. Gota get in what i can now while i'm still some what
able. Look out hunting season. Really getting buck fever this year. Mid
summer and i'm dreaming of freezing my butt off in the Montana winters
hoping to get a decent sized elk.
Oh well, we all have to go some time right? at least i can say i lived this life,
not always good choices, but as far as the big things, no regrets, never had
to wonder "What if i had" Because i did it.
Had many jobs of all types, from working on a boat dock to driving a semi truck,
bottom of the todem pole, to managment, not much i have not done, although
i have to say, my favorite job i ever had was working in a auto body shop,
creating something butiful out of a bent up piece of wrekcage, or resoring a
road runner, then putting that shiney new coat of paint on it and have it roll out
looking like a show room car. Loved that job.
Lived all over the U.S. i've probably lived in more states that most people have
Nope cant complain, had a good life, and if my time card is punched soon,
well, at least i got out there and did things.
