    Sure I'd quit!
    But the problem is I don't buy lottery tickets.
    I used to but one Friday night on the way home I found I had a ticket that was worth a couple of grand....
    It was late and my wife was sleeping so I didn't tell her I just tucked it in the console of my truck.
    The next morning a friend was picking me up to fish a tournament so I left in the morning and she still didn't know...
    While I was fishing she cleaned my truck and threw away the ticket and the trash was picked up that afternoon.

    End of the story I was mad about it and I got in the dog house because I was supposed to be thankful that she cleaned my truck and threw away the ticket.

    That was the last ticket I ever bought!
    I don't need the trouble that the money brings with it!

    If I would win I would open a huge plumbing company.

    I always felt if I had more money, I would expand the business.
    I love doing what I do.

    I've been asked when I will retire, and I told her I had no plans for that.
    Not what the woman wanted to hear.
    But I love this, and think I could do it indefinitely.
    Think about it, it's 4:33AM and I'm typing.

    Work is essentially such a large part of who I am, I could never retire, I would lose myself in the process. I do so many different things that I rarely ever get bored and I love so much of it.

    Terry, years ago, I was getting a port put in, and in the OR, my cell phone starting ringing, the surgeon was a military man and stern; but, he even laughed when I asked him to take a message about the property for sale. I was so out of it, I didn't realize he was talking to my son. The nurses unfortunately, got his wrath for letting me have it in the first place.

    I uh, shouldn't admit this, but, while visiting my mom, dad and husband at the cemetary, I also, got a listing from people visiting their family members.

    ... but, I did hear my husband and dad laughing while I was walking away...

    By the way Terry, did you notice the time I wrote this?
