There is nothing wrong with that and no reason you can't still participate on the meat cutter's club. A lot of us are not meat cutters anymore. What are you thinking for a second career?

Don't know yet fdarn, taking a few months to clear my head.
and then see what's out there. I'm going to look at something fun and low stress.
I was thinking about guitar center because guitar is a hobby of mine.not worried about the money yet.
I got a good retirement but I got to get out of the house and do something.

RE: It's happening,I'm almost out


guys I don't get on here very often anymore like I should but I was almost to the point of just getting burned out on the meat business and was about to hang it up.Then one of my cutters had to go in the hospital for a while for some medical problems and I got to work with a new apprentice some and it has renewed my lease on the business,maybe it is a dying trade here in the south but dammit I still love to cut! Even after 16 yrs and the shop falling apart 3 or 4 times I'm still loving it.So bucklester let me know what you get into so I can check it out in about 20 yrs or so that's what I have left til retirement age if my liver holds up that long anyway,and keep in touch with us here.You never know when the next little guy that talks with you could be the next man to revive the trade
