    I mow a cemetery in the evenings and plan to start beekeeping next spring. I just hope to eventually sell enough honey to pay to keep doing it though, doubt I'll ever make enough o call it a second income.

    I will be my wife's assistant when she has her own business-not quite there yet.

    She will be taking over her girlfriends business of making wildlife rugs. Her gf's husband and son do taxidermy work and then the ladies sew the rugs. Mostly bears but they have done deer, elk, and caribou.

    They also have started making mountain man style fur hats.

    The only down side will be my wife being the boss....

    At least in life, I have SOME wiggle room. She knows if she tries to tell me what to do, when to do it, and how to do it, I will tell her to go ahead and just do it herself.

    Don't know how that will work as HER assistant. LOL. Not well I would imagine.

    If she's good at it roll with it. Many women have a higher drive than men.


    I took my wife on board about 15 years ago and now she runs the show much better than I could. I was getting bored of it and looking to slow down and she brought a new fire to the business and now we're bigger and better than ever.

    Yes! Roanoke eh. My son is down at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg. I sure wish I could get on a flight and see Cheap Trick in Roanoke tomorrow.

    I'd like to get in on that if it pays! I've spent a lot of time at Tech when friends went there

    I've done a few things for some extra cash, but nothing paid as well as my job so I just work a boat load of OT instead.

    Not being a respecter of money and being thoroughly addicted to hunting, I just take on more work and work more hours and most Saturdays all spring and summer and then when hunting comes and all of the extra money that I have put away somehow gets absorbed paying bills. My wife and I worked hard for several years and paid off our home and extra property and have been very careful as to not go into heavy debt, so as I look ahead to the coming winter, all that we have for bills is cell phones, food, (though we could probably live for 8 or 9 months off what we have canned and frozen) and electricity.

    I fight forest fires here in Minnesota and have been in 9 other states running engines, hand crews, pretty much run a clipboard now though more paperwork than putting wet stuff on hot stuff. Thought I retired but they talked me into coming back for a couple more years.

    I would love to but they know better than to call me before my tags are filled. I was in Kentucky back in 2000 in November funny the federal govt we were working for could not get us absentee ballots.
