    so I posted about 4 weeks ago I was going to start a new job after retiring for a few months.
    Best move i ever made, all I do is turn wrenches on small equipment. I have a jib crane to lift the heavier stuff to my bench. No administrative duties, no reviews, no personnel issues.
    The company is a family run thing withe nicest people
    Best job I ever had

        It was a boredom thing. I found all I was doing was sitting around not being productive.
        It was not a money thing which makes it really nice because there is no pressure.
        I have to stay busy, its in my nature

            I think yard work and my honey-do list would keep me from EVER getting bored.
