I imagine that both "high paying executive work" and "hard labor" are being vastly exaggerated here....

Playing rancher isn't hard labor....though I can see how middle-class Americans would conceive of such.

Obviously from one who has never done it. That's the most BS statement I think I've ever read here on CD....and that's saying something.

Probably, but I wake up on the same side of the bed every morning.

I read your post, but I was asking a question of the thread as a whole. I wasn't sure what the implication was.

In terms of making a difference, no worries, I reckon if you worked (or owned) at a gym you'd be making the same sort of difference in society.

Oh yes...of course, but the important question here is....is it a good time to buy?

Crabby today... What gives............?

OK... Lets see 6 figures plus in the 1990's was high pay for a farm boy...

Not much of a rancher... Grew up farming full time, now I just grow a couple acres of produce, do all the work myself, raise some livestock... Do logging, log home building, own and operate a small sawmill, yes off bearing hardwood boards is hard labor..... Yep I screw off a bunch, why not?

Pulling a winch line with logging chains over your shoulder out in steep terrain is hard labor... So is and peeling logs with a draw knife. If you are in a tee shirt when it is 15F outside and you are still steaming with sweat, that my soft yellow bellied friend is hard labor...

Don't judge me I won't judge you........... $*&$^# jerk

You just LOVE to judge and pick fights, don't you? I'd ask what I ever did to deserve your hate today (on multiple threads) if I actually gave a cr*p.

And you don't know the business model for the gym (but of course you'll take time out of your day to judge, because THAT'S productive), but since I struggle with disabilities after multiple injuries, the focus would be on therapy for humans and animals with injuries, so yes, in my book, that IS making a difference to society.

Now go throw your hate onto someone else. You and I are no longer speaking (which I'm sure you're happy about, so you're welcome ).

Pretty big claim. I don't think you've ever been on one have you.

Perhaps it was high pay for "a farm boy"...I wouldn't know, but its not high pay in terms of California even in the 1990's. You traded what sounds like a stressful job where you were forced to work a lot to make, what you perceive as "high pay", and you traded it for a rural lifestyle where you work less...but perhaps have to use your muscles a bit more. Of course, that is a perfectly valid choice, I just think its odd to describe it in terms of "high pay executive" to "hard labor".

At the end of the day I just get a kick out of the tough guy thing....

Picking fights? Nah....judging? Of course. Places like city-data are filled with all sorts of people, not everyone in the world is "the sky is always bright" sort. Of course, if one doesn't like negative sorts you can just ignore them.
