NYgal -- Yes, you are sure right about places hanging over time. Sorry you got led astray by the google maps. That happened recently to a family member of mine. I'm sorry you missed the service.

Jim -- Keep up your search and something will show up. They sometimes have interesting jobs and caretaker positions listed on cattle ranch job websites. Or maybe asummer camp caretaker positions with some Handyman duties thrown in?
We knew a fellow who was a security guard at an isolated stone quarry.

Just a thought. Campground Mgr jobs for the NPS and USFS are hard to get, and lots of people around. Some Seniors love them and come back to the same spot every year, but you have to have an RV. Okay, you don't have to, but most folks do. But you have your pups and they need their space too.

Tek_Freek -- enjoy your trivia contest tomorrow!

JOBS?????????? I can just picture me at 66 years old getting up at the buttcrack of dawn working on a cattle ranch. I'll pass but thanks for the suggestion.

I have zero desire to ever work again. I've come to the realization I will live in this place until I die. At least the dogs can run around and are happy here. And the way they've been abused, abandoned and had to hunt for their next meal, I am glad they can be happy here, spoiled and loved.

As Maynard G. Krebs was fond of saying "work"????

One of the best parts of my retirement is being here to see the grandkids in the everyday events of their lives. Today was the school’s annual fun run fundraiser at the elementary school. No cookies or candy to sell, just running laps for a flat donation or per lap instead. This is something I want to support.

They get a tee shirt to wear and have a box marked off on the back as they complete each lap. This was the fourth one I’ve been to and the first with both grandkids participating. It was also the coolest temp-wise with only 60 degrees when it began. Good times!

Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone. It's only 8:00am, but my wife and I are already getting all our green clothes and green paraphernalia together for the day's activities. We'll be meeting another couple at 10am and then Ubering over to a local Irish pub to get in line for their 11am opening. There'll be a contest at noon for the best dressed patron, music, and other festivities. Should be a good time. (Last year, my wife and I were interviewed as part of a local live news report in a pub, but that was in a different location a couple miles from our house in Miami. This year, we'll be closer to our condo on Miami Beach.)
