  •  The job I retired from... (4+ / 0-)

    ...was ultimately interesting, but since I worked for a public agaency, wasn't always loveable. When I came to it I had failed to break into an engineering specialty I had hoped for, and had been unemployed for 11 months, with only one month before I was off UI.

    In retrospect, I wish I had just gone into traffic engineering right out of school, but it didn't work like that. But I did manage to get to early retirement, so there you go.

    If I was to pick what I'd love to do, it would be setting up a small shop to make stainless steel metal construction parts by laser cutting (Meccano Erector stuff), but I'd need a windfall to set that up.
