As someone who lives on his pension my heart goes out to you man. <br><br>The thought of going back to work at my age is sickening. I think I would take my freelance work a little more seriously if I was faced with the prospect of going back to work.<br><br>I hear what you're saying about respectability in the work place, aviation was a good place to be, good perks, pay, and plenty of opportunities for advancement.<br><br>Hope things work out for you. <br><br>
