    At this point in time the world is your oyster.

    I'd probably try something I haven't done but always wanted to. Or even something that seemed fun depending on monetary or insurance needs.
    I think if you can fog any mirror your gonna be given a chance nowadays.

    Costco’s food court is the real deal. Great food at bargain prices.

    I drove a shuttle bus part time to the Atlanta airport a few years back and really enjoyed it. I met folks from all over the world. Considering doing that in a few more years when I get over 60. I might would go back to being a radio DJ but that job is slowly becoming a thing of the past with all the voice tracking and automation. I loved it but it doesn't pay squat.

    You reminded me of one of my side gigs years ago, being a DJ...live for parties, clubs etc...so you still have that option... weddings etc, but it's a lot of work and expense since you have to provide your own gear, but it was/is fun...but I fear my age limits me to my age group since I can't understand most of the new stuff. :)

    All these years alone with my thoughts, you think I’d come up with something better than a hot dog stand, and a handyman service. I should have stopped everything about 20 yrs ago, and really learned more about technology. A internet based Company, that just makes money while I sleep, would be ideal. All the easy money’s in cyberspace. Wherever that is. Lol.

    I would go to law school.
    . Become a Attorney.. specialize in business law
    Stay a active a member on here
    And everytime 1 of the snowflakes started a thread about how they thought they got screwed at their job or pay or the fleece operater contract
    Or wanted to start their own trucking company..
    I would take them as a client & take their money

    Cow haulin saved me from bein an adult film star....if I didn’t have such a dislike for the L.A region I suppose that would still work for me. I would hate it though.....


    I guess I could buy and rehome old hoods after I get them back into respectable shape, though my clientele would mostly be shaky and want owner financing. That’s 2 strike outs so I reckon bein a door greeter at the Walmart may be in my future

    Maybe this bit of info would help...
    You don't have to live in LA to be in the Adult Flim industry now ..
    Alot of it is filmed in a old potato warehouse in Idaho owned By @Oxbow Industries..
    I like Idaho in the summer & early fall .. Then you could go back home and refurb. Hoods in the winter .. don't worry when I pass the bar exam and get my degree I 'll write up financial contracts that would learn in your favor & We''ll set up our own lending institution
    That Adult Flim Industry & and that warehouse in Idaho are what is going to put me through Law School
    As you already knew I have my screen name already picked out ..
