I have a feeling of De Ja Vu. Anyway, I was a Satellite Communications Field Engineer, but retired now. Now days I just play and make a mess.

Retirement has allowed me to become the thing I most aspired to be for my entire life.....an unemployed bumb! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

I'm a professional Tax and Welfare payer. I've been doing it for many many years. I must not be very good at it because every year they demand more from me and don't even thank me for the work I do. Anyone can do it. I wonder if I'll ever be able to retire from this job. 'till death do us part.
