The one thing I do a lot is read, especially in the winter months, so I read many stories that just make you either want to PUKE or make you WORK even harder.
Stories like yours keeps the passion and drive alive!

Good luck brother!
THANK YOU

You sound a little like me, In the winter when it is too cold (Below Freezing) to work outside I spend almost all my time reading. It doesn't matter how much you know, how skilled, or talented you are when you reach a certain age and begin to show your age people start treating you as though your helpless and mentally challenged. I know that I look old but I do not feel old. I think of the 85 year old man that I work for as old, although I have to hustle to keep up with him. He is my role model and the one who motivates me.
