I am retired now but with 45 yrs. in the Restaurant/country club / owner of a restaurant
business there were some time I thought of quiting but my alternative was welding and that is so boring I could scream. but for the most part I loved my job as cook, sous chef ,and Banquet chef, Ex. chef and if I was healthy I would be in a kitchen tomorrow
That's why I volunteer for baking duty over next door for 60 seniors once a month
now this momnth I am going to be making Pizza for 60 seniors. So from cooking being a job it is now my hobby

Ha - I've finished munching on salad.

I bill myself as a 'professional gardener' rather then a run of the mill landscaper. I happen to be lucky enough to do what I love now and live within a close commute (what with gas prices now) of several well healed areas in the Chicago area. It's sort of niche industry right now but I figure it will continue to expand.

My other angle is to promote organic & green garden practices such as - not using gas powered leaf blowers & minimal use of herbicides & pesticides and installing a high percentage of plants are native or sustainable & responsible non-indigenous plants (think hostas they don't hog water or invade native habitats)

Been at this for 4 years now and still loving it.

I don't have much of a choice as I pretty much follow where my husband is posted. But I've always volunteered at the schools as I'm an elementary teacher by trade. This past year has been great----I've worked with all age groups and now am helping out with 3& 4 years old. What a bunch they are...........so different and unique and pain in the butts at the same time.........the stories I could tell.....hahaha....anyway I love it....

I loved my former job, but unfortunately they closed. The job I currently have I can't stand. mostly female employees, so a lot of cat fights, if you know what I mean. I guess I can't complain to much it's putting money in my pocket.
