"Never looked back. I do miss some of the folks I use to work with, but with Facebook, well, it's keeps it real. "

Most of the folks I worked with 13 years ago got laid off in the telecom meltdown...and the ones who managed to hang on are working 50-60 hours a week to keep their jobs.....and not enjoying it.

Most of the folks I knew wound up moving out of town for new opportunities. almost none were financially able to retire....

some found other local work...and and then retired....but never regained the financial track they were on...usually taking 30% paycut just to be employed at something.

I'm glad I did lots of overseas travel in my 50s.....I really don't have the enthusiasm for oversea travel any longer - too much hassle.
