    Thursday...work. Evening kids. Night wife. Sleep.

    Friday...work. Evening/night kids & wife. Sleep.

    Saturday...sleep. Then kids & wife daytime and evening/night. Sleep.

    Leaving kids with wife? My wife has almost every weekend a tennis match (she is in a local club and is their best female player, so they cannot do without her). When she doesn't have a tennis match, she has emergency service (which brings in extra cash, so she does as many as possible...a woman needs shoes...tons of them Smiley).

    I miss the time when I could just sneak away from home to visit a track or Porsche or join whatever driving gang to have some driving fun and/or meet new people. These times are over, work comes first, no time for other stuff, other than during vacations (with kids & wife). I envy you. Smiley

    All a matter of priorities.   Your kids are old enough to be on their own .... for some time .  I am now away with my wife for two nights. We asked the 20 year old daughter of a friend to stay at our home from 6 PM to 8 AM. 

    What if you would be , as many , working for a big company where they just keep sending people all over the world for a few days , if not a week ? 

    As to you business , only you know what is possible to do. With mine , I made sure it can run without me .

    Re: Dave and Gnil @ Paul Richard-Le Castellet

    You are lucky. In my business, things aren't easy anymore. I need to work because I haven't many employees anymore . I could expand, start something new and then the business would run without me but this would be a huge risk considering the regulations it depends on and the possible changes and of course the necessary investments. At my age, I just prefer to spend more time with my family (we have strong ties).

    Maybe I should change my job and profession.  wink

    Not many Independent pharmacys left in my region. The one in my small town still is , run by the owner and 2 ladys,  but all others have joined big groups. Times are indeed changing. It used to be a gold mine . 

    Actually the same is happening in my type of business. If one does not integrete a large group , you have not many chances left on the longer run.

    Yep, the same here. Looking to buy a bigger one (not interested in opening a new one, too risky) but not easy, the "good" ones are sold "under the table" and I need one in my region, not 200 km away. Smiley Chains are not legal here but there are "groups". To join these groups, you need to have a certain revenue level, which is often pretty high.

    Long story short: I am also thinking about doing something else but not sure what to do exactly. Smiley

    Very cool photo with the lines and the opposed direction of the cars. And that CUP car...where's the drooling smiley when you need it?

    Btw, what tire pressure worked for you? 


    Re: Dave and Gnil @ Paul Richard-Le Castellet

    You sure that's your brother's car? angry

    He had no 7 on Friday and it appears to say Patrick something on the roof..

    (That's definitely him in my pics above)

    Gauss:

    Btw, what tire pressure worked for you? 

    Keep it the closest possible to 2.2 at the back and 2.0 at the front .

    By the end , I was probably at   - 0.7 bars from the original pressure
