Not too many fields to plow in Southern California. Do have to tend to all the nuts though.
Honestly, I loved the work, customers, different places every day (some better than others). The basic freedom of the field where you manage what you do.
Also was at the top of the game after doing it for so long. Big swelled head at being a top tech in the nation helping others. After awhile I could not find hats to fit my big head.
It was a feel good career where your customers actually appreciated you and treated you well. I have a weird sense of humor and always enjoyed cracking up the people I worked with.
I miss the career but must say, this retirement thing has a lot going for it. OK, time for a nap.
