    It does to a point

    It is like practice for retirement. Thought I would retire at 60 but looks like it will be freedom 55 from my current job and when this BS clears up find a partime to supplement the shooting habit....LOL....Cannot handle the direction of the company I work for. 35 1/2 years will be enough in the Telco trades.

    On the fun side my GF and I went to the range a few days ago and dialed in the 357 and .22 Buckmark. They are ready for the Zombie apocalypse. LOL.

    The 686 can shoot. Can 1 hole at 25 yards if I can hold it steady enough.

    Today was spent polishing it up along with the .40 S&W and the Buckmark. Love the 686.

    My baby....

    for health insurance? Coverage from the Telco, pay the long dollar for an individual plan or go sans? Remember you don't qualify for medicare, under current rules, till you turn 65. Good luck with whatever you do.

    In regards to Health Care

    Well being Canadian that does not matter. Remember as taxpayers we all pay for this dearly.

    In regards to plans for Dental, prescriptions, eyewear etc I have 3 options. When I started out we were a Provincial crown corporation then the Provincial government privatized us. So being grandfathered I can opt for the provincial retirement plan, a retirement plan thru Manulife who our current employer uses or shop on my own.

    Working aloft on ladders and climbing poles, lots of crawling around under desks etc my knees and hips are starting to give me grief. At 54 I never thought from my hips down I would ache so much.

    In regards to the Burl I will have to ask the better looking one in the house. She got that from her brother who lives in Vancouver. He found it, cleaned it up and finished it.

    its a physical job alright. in college i worked 2 summers for New England Tel and Tel in the cable splicing crew. Long hours, hot, lots of biting bugs but good pay. I enjoyed it. Got pretty good with belt and climbers although our above ground height seldom exceeded 25-30 feet.

    the high voltage power line guys do, but they work their butts off for it. I doubt the local telco linemen do but I've been wrong before. with enough OT it may happen.

    You cannot believe our acorn crop this year. I am heavily wooded, but it appears we have a solid 1" cover on all of my property. We do have a large deer population.
