I don’t know if I just picked the right jobs, or I am just happy wherever Do you know anything about churches/businesses and their problems with temperature controls. That is one of the largest headaches, having a building the right temp for the public.
I had a pastor tell me once that I must be a lizard, I didn’t care what the temp was, I never complained. Many folk, like my Girl Sherry, carry a sweater or jacket in the hot summer, if they plan to enter a building, because most places are too cold for her.
I have heard folks complain about Mondays all my adult life, I don’t remember complaining about Mondays, if I did it had to be in school, school was not my favorite place growing up.

I have mentioned IQ before. Learning I had an extremely high IQ made me lazy. I thought that meant that I was very smart. The secret of a high IQ is that YOU HAVE POTENTIAL, you CAN make logical analytical decisions. IT DOESN’T MEAN THAT YOU WILL! There in lies the joke on us with a high IQ, you end up being mediocre.
Don’t get me wrong, I never feel sorry for myself for not reaching my potential, you probably didn’t either. Most folks don’t.
Most nights I tuck my love in, and I tell her she is the most important thing in my life. I always tell her, ‘we would have had nothing, if it was not for you’.
Every once in awhile we laugh at life. Comparing our first place, a rented 8x26 foot 1 BR trailer; to this 38 ft. Motor home. Sherry says, ‘I thought our little trailer was a mansion’. What we lived in has never made any difference. I moved her into a remodeled chicken house once.It was each other that mattered.

But come Monday morning? I was ready to go to work, earn that paycheck, no matter how small, it provided for my girl and me. I honestly feel sorry for folks who hate to go to work. I wish everyone could love their work,their mate and be happy with their life. Life is so much better.
Our old ‘68 I fixed up for Mark.
We love Lucy here on the net. Lucy refers to us as ‘rich’ sometimes. We live like millionaires so I don’t mind. At one time we were pretty well off. In the last 20-25 years we have really wanted for little. But we have never required much. We have never needed a new car. I never minded driving a car 10 years old. My pickup trucks were old, I never felt the need to impress any of the other builders.

I could have had an office down town, but why? Sherry never minded talking to potential buyers and furnishing coffee. It upset my son a couple times, because he felt running with the Big dogs was impressive; but I could underbid most of the competition, because I could settle with less profit.
Enough, Be happy with your portion in life, if you are really unhappy ask yourself why? If it is that important then change. If not, Love life and smile.
Life is good. Just go ask MA, or the Boomer!
Don’t ever wrestle with a pig. You’ll both get dirty, but the pig will enjoy it.
