IT IS A FULL TIME JOB! A labor of love, for sure. Running a business, even such a tiny business as this, is (hopefully) going to add years to my (useful) life. When I retired 3+ years ago, having worked since I was 15 years old, I was lost. I mean, after all, what does one do for years, doing nothing? My wife will tell one and all that I am a terrible businessman. She says, and its very true, that I would much rather talk about growing/propagating tropical plants than actually sell them. That's just the way I am. Lots of hot air.
I thank God that he allowed me to practice dentistry for 42 years and also thank him for giving me a hobby that I love, and one that I could spend the rest of my life nurturing. I even get to help people, but now its with plant problems rather than mouth problems.
You know, almost every single night I still dream about dentistry, usually problems that never get solved. I never dream about my plants. A psychiatrist would probably diagnose something terrible.
