Retired two years ago from the Tribal Utility I was working for, designing power, water, and sewer systems for the reservation, and managing the construction and maintenance of same. Now working as a gun salesman and smith, as well as doing metal machining and welding for fun and too little profit.I recently bought 20 acres of land, and a tractor to help me develop it into a homesite and ranch. I was planning to raise lobsters, but having seen frozen rabbits on Amazon selling for $49 each, I may have to replan.
