    way ahead of his time....he too was ridiculed in his early years

    I might even bring in a piano if (you know who) takes some lessons!!
    until then I could hire Allegro for evening performances!

    Great ideas...everyone and those who have their dream job...you are
    so very fortunate!

    Q
    This sounds like a nice little town.....With my books and yours, we could probably just start a library though. I like the B & B for pets idea too.

    Gosh like this dream.....

    You are very creative Queen no wonder you are making money with baskets...

    I'd go back to my pre-injury job.

    Grab my hock and trowel and scratch, brown and finish some houses just for the fun of it. Or work on a high rise, shooting the mud on the lath with a tommygun, then spreading the mud with a darby and a rod.

    I loved this job, it's what my dad did, and I was raised on it. I was in the union at 17 making good money. I worked on many high rises in Seattle, Reno, LV, Portland and LA, among many others.

    To sit with my legs over the side 40 floors up is precious...now when I see heights just on the tv I get a little spooked, lol. I've felt that way ever since my injury, where I fell over a 100 feet.

    I'm sure this is going to come as a big surprise: movie director/writer. When not working I'd be either at a hideaway or exploring every corner of this gorgeous world.

    I would have loved to been able to be a fine artist (oils or watercolor), but of course that requires the requisit TALENT which sadly I don't have. I would have wanted to be financially successful at it too, which is also pretty rare.

    I partially-regret turning my back on science at 18. My dream job would probably be a physics professor at a good school with a sizeable research budget.

    Hopefully being a law professor (one day!) will have some perks.

    P.S. Almost forgot - minus SCI I so would have been a professional rugby player in my 20s.
