I'm retired. I have considered getting a part time job to help pay for toys, esp since my wife has 4 more years to go. I spend about 20 hours a week teaching ESL on a volunteer basis. I'm thinking of approaching Bell & offering my services (I'm a telco tech), the year leading up to the Olympics in Vancouver. That also corresponds with my wifes retirement. Woudl be nice to build up a nest egg.

...I am in the Canadian Airforce and have been for over 30 years now. I am a Flight Engineer (FE) by trade and am currently flying on a sub-hunter called the Aurora disignator is CP-140 (American version is the P-3 Orien) (3100 hrs). I have been an engineer on the Hercules CC-130 (2000 hrs), the Buffalo CC-115 (900 hrs), and the Twin Heuy Helicopter CH-135 (1500hrs). It's a great job and my hours vary from trip to trip. Best trips are those where I get to work with the US Navy!!! I have no immediate plans to retire yet as I have another 10 years to go if I want to stay in that long. We'll see...................Steve...

I'm only 32 and have worked as a golf professional and in the golf industry since my freshman year in college. It's a great job but my I'm so busy during the summer...hence less time for fishing and camping. So, about a year ago I became involved in a home business to earn extra money for toys and later in life.....well, now it's doing so well that this will hopefully be my last year as a golf professional....more time for fishing and camping. Great topic by the way, it's always nice to learn things about others who are on the board...stuff other than what TC or truck they have. Have a great day everyone

Retired three years ago from Johnson and Johnson where I worked in sales and marketing. Spent the last five years helping to develop and market devices to locate breast cancer quicker and easier. Awesome job and great results. Now I spend my time spoiling grandkids, working with Alive Hospice,reading and telling stories to grammar school kids and attemping to write kids books. I would be on the road now but wife had local jury duty last month and I am on Federal jury this month. But every thing will still be there in May.

Both my wife and I worked for Procter & Gamble for 25 years. Relocated from Quebec to Ontario, built a new home and started a small landscape/home reno business. Retired a few years ago and became the "house husband" until last year when my wife retired too. We're now in the travel mode.

I work at the largest overnight freight delivery company in the world (no, not UPS). Been there for 22 long years off-loading aircraft, making deliveries, listening to customers scream and on and on. I work M-F from 0530-1300 (yawn).

I can barely wait for retirement (hopefully tomorrow) :D

My husband works for the natural gas co. here and has been there for 32 years. Five more years before he retires.
