    Pray h. w.

    I was 31 when I finished my undergrad degree, so it is never too late! A friend of mine just finished his PhD at 64.

    I have been an organic dairy/poltry farmer, a carpenter, hunting guide, fishing guide, a carpenter again, a small business owner (drive thru coffee joint) and now I am a principal partner at an energy efficient construction firm.
    Pray-Hunt you taking Reds Eats to Florida? Nice. Good luck!

    Yep, never too old to learn. I finished my PhD at age 52. I am retired from numerous jobs but most recently US National Park Service. And yes, I have lived in Canada since 1989. Sometimes it was a long commute to work! :-)

    I have been a police officer since 1999. Before that I worked various jobs, including security at a nuclear power plant and many grocery stores.

    I teach Middle School and love it. For the last decade I've taught U.S. History. It was tough the first few years but now its fun and challenging in a good way and the kids keep you young.

    Pray-hunt-work, I hear you on the desk thing. Despite the degrees I have never worked in a Landscape Arch. office. Every time I interviewed they said "You are going to sit in that cubicle and do computer drawings of others people's work for the first three to five years." I just can't do it. Even now the job does not involve much labor but I am only in the office two days a week.
    Best wishes for your new adventure, wherever it takes you!

    Chuckles- I thank you for the insight. Where I am at currently in life I "could afford" college, however, I do intend to further my education in the,hopefully, near future. I do not know just what direction I want to head in, but prefer it is something hands on, as I don't do as well with desk work as I do with physical labor.

    Dcast,I only curse the arrogant, "I know more than everyone" types. Once the job starts it becomes a team effort. Although I've been known to mumble "everything works on paper", under my breath from time to time

    Pray-hunt-work, it is never too late if you are interested in more education. I got my undergrad degree at 33 and my masters at 43. If you want it you can make it happen.

    As a side note I was one of the fortunate that when I was 12 I said I was going to be a Conservation Officer and my dream came true. I was one of the lucky ones that got to do exactly what they wanted to do in life.

    I saw a study done recently that persons attending and completing a vocational school actually make more than 75% of the people with a traditional 4 year college degree. When I was hired as a Conservation Officer a person had to have either 2 years of military or two years of college. I didn't have to worry I had them both. I think that in professions like that military should still be a requirement. When we dropped the military requirement I saw a great difference in the quality of young officers. They seemed like they weren't as "grown up" when they came to work.

    I read that more than 82% of Americans dislike their jobs. For a good portion of my life, so did I. It took me eight years of night classes simply to earn an Associate (2-year) degree. I returned to classes several years later as the oldest male in my class, graduating with a B.S. at age 50 (fifty). Candidly, there were periods of feast & famine as a Tech writer and QA inspector, and the famines grew longer than the feasts, but I enjoyed much of my work. It's never too late. We stop learning and we begin to stagnate. I'm 66 now, and I'd like to return to classes of interest...so I will!

    Thank you guys very much, I don't know why I take such an interest in others occupations, but it has always intrigued me as to how people make a living. I never went to college, which I now regret, but still seem to wonder just what my next step will be in the work place. Unlike C.B. Hunter I was ignorant at a young age and jumped into a couple of work places that didn't require further educations. Again, thank you for the previous responses.
