    I'm going to put up a poll here and I'd really like people to be honest here.

    It's not like anyone would know how you voted anyways, so let's see the truth.

    I do it because I want to. I retired from a successful career, and draw a disability from the Army.

    Being totally retired is tough. There's no coffee breaks, no smoke breaks, no special holidays, or long weekends. You don't know when your finished because you don't know when you started!:laugh:

    I had to do something and wanted it to be outdoors. I do make money at it, but use the money to buy myself more toys.

    Took a little bit to type in the poll.

    I guess it goes ahead and plugs the post as you are doing the poll.

    I guess I cant vote since I dont Mow No Mo, but I wish I wasnt the bread winner in the family!

    The wife is making good steps with the state and could be in a big position with the state in a few years! Then maybe I can quit my job! hahaha

    I am the sole income earner for my family and I work another job as well. I make more money by far with my LCO but get full benefits and retirement, etc. through the fire department.

    Both me and my wife work for the same company (Fathers company), we choose to do lawn maintenance on the side because we like being outside and getting excercise...while doing this we get paid! My father is encouraging me to start my own company and said he would help with anything I need. We are going to start out small and see where it goes.
