It looks like my retirement is over. I've hired in at the local community college on a part time basis. I'll be teaching just one class this semester, Intro to Welding. The class covers oxy-acetylene cutting and welding, stick welding, and a little MIG along with welding safety. Next semester, it looks like maybe three classes. That would be great. The money's decent and all of the classes are one day per week for 4-5 hours at a time. I'm going to be paying a tidy sum of money for health insurance for a couple of years, so this will help with that. And, tying in with the picture, I'd like to get back to Europe again.
I'd like to get to Paris and also return to Italy to see the northwestern part. One of those motorcycle tours of the Alps would be great. You're looking at about 5 large for the motorcycle tour, so I need to start a little fund with my "professor" money to get back to Europe. I looked into taking an ocean liner across the Atlantic previously. It seems lots of the tour lines return to Europe once a year and you can book passage fairly cheap. That could be the way to go. Some freighters also take passengers. I'm figuring on working a couple of years, health permitting. That'll give me time to save a few bucks and get a few things tightened up a little more around here. Springtime in Paris and Lago di Como. That'd definitely be the capper for me.
No holiday here, though. Time to get busy. A piu tardi!
