    I know things are tough right now out there in the workforce, I can especially tell in my field, residential construction so I thought I would ask the question, if the job fairy came around and smacked you atop the head with her wand and granted you any job you want making an automatic $250,000 per year any place in the world what would if be?


    I once had a job working for the summer with the Ky Fish and Wildlife out of the Minor E. Clark Fish hatchery and I thoroughly enjoyed it, the money was terrible but the scenery was unbeleivable...so I guess my ideal job would be a Fish and Wildlife guy working down in Florida in the 10,000 island area of the Everglades (originally from Fla.)

    Sheeeit I went to the local job service and asked for an application to be a retired millionaire, and they thought I was joking:eek:oooh:

    I'd like to do studio work in Nashville if I had my way about it, or just a song and jingle writer down there.

    Well if could do anything I wanted for a living I'd play baseball but then that job fairy would be grossly under paying me by today's standards. :eek:oooh: But I'm sure I'd be ok with that. :big_smile_2: And it doesn't really matter where, it'll be summer although, I don't think I could bring myself to play for the Mets :embarassed:

    My first pick would be the porn industry. :wink:If that didn't work out, I guess I could settle for fishing and hunting for a living.. Hey, It's theoretical at this point right?

    I think working in any National Park would be sweet,,, my favorite would be, "The Land Between The Lakes",,, I would be happy just riding a tractor mowing grass along side the roads,,, and enjoying the beautiful scenery.

    I think keeping your hobbies and your job separate is important. Turning your favorite thing to do into a job..... well you get the picture.

    I don't what position it would be but I really love finding a bargain---not ripping someone off but just researching something to find the best deal or getting something I feel is valuable in the dollar box of stuff at auction, I don't think I would want to be a pro fisherman---then it becomes work!
