Friends often ask me when I'm going to retire. I have no plans for a
couple of more years at least. Going to work for me is about as
enjoyable as going to the coffee shop to met some friends. First
thing I do is make a pot of tea and sit with one of my co-workers for
an hour. Then I go out to the shop and see every employee to say "good
morning" and make sure everything is OK with them.
Of 15 employees, 6 of us are over 60. Two recent retirees were 76 and
If I was putting wheels and lug nuts on cars as they went down the
assembly line, I'd have been out two years ago.
Just because your body is failing physically doesn't mean your brain has
stopped working. Me and my friends who are disabled and don't wish to
give up on life and keep working somehow are trying to find young people
who are not slackers and potheads to pass our knowledge and skills on
to. My friend LM who's 62 has gotten to the point where he's
as crippled as I am and his son is going back to school for HVAC
training which has us talking about how we can teach him what we know.
It makes you wish you were young again. ^_^
What an amazing guy Mr. Smith was. I've found through life that the
people who are truly altruistic and charitable are often those who grew
up with nothing. Eddie Smith taught his children how to give back to a
world that's been good to them and has left a wonderful legacy. Gosh,
the country needs more people like Eddie Smith. ^_^
The middle and lower classes seem to despise the wealthier portion of
society. While there may be good reason in some cases, Eddie Smith is
to be admired. Everything he has, he earned. He uses what he earned to
help others. Wish I could have met him.
I've never despised anyone who made their wealth through hard work
unless that wealth was obtained through theft. I know people like that
and in this area, a few who have made a great deal of money through
nefarious means are now in prison. The class/wealth warfare that exists
in the United States is purulent pathological propaganda purposely
promoted pursuing proletariat public political protest propagating
progressively portending probable pogroms against moneyed people. This
poppycock is promulgated by Commiecrat politicians and all of the
Liberal/Leftist press worldwide. ^_^
There is a Dr. Ben Carson who also puts us mere mortals to shame.
His mom is quite a lady. She had only something like a 3rd grade
education yet made Ben and his brother write book reports for her.
She could barely read them.
Dr. Carson is/was a hot shot surgeon. His brother is/was a manager
at Honeywell. Dr. Carson gave a speech at the National Prayer
(Youtube about 28 minutes.)
