Hang in there Steve. I know how health issues can wreck an otherwise good retirement. My physical/mental therapy is PLC programming and fixing CNC equipment for my former employer. The owner and I are old friends so I get special treatment in the shop. They were even nice about rebuking me for wearing house slippers to work.

I also do some consulting for another former employer. Can't brag about it much as we are still working on patent protection. It's mostly embedded programming, of which I know almost nothing. Kinda strange - I did my university studies in mechanical engineering, yet most of what I do now is electrical.

Of course the house remodelling is only 80% complete. It keeps the rain and bugs out so I'll probably leave the last 20% for the next unsuspecting soul who wants a fixer-upper.
