I love the older Estee enamels as well. I'll start saving now, and a couple of years down the road maybe I can buy your St Johns! I'm fortunate that I work for a big company ( Federal Express Courier ) with great benefits. Our medical benefits have gone up pricewise for us over the years, don't know what I would do w/o them though. You having to fund insurance on your own is astronomical! I have over 18 yrs in, am 51 now and plan on leaving when I have my 25 yrs in. It's really a job for the young and mgmt there is a big headache as far as I'm concerned. I'll do something else, hopefully breeding my Chows or working w/the Chow Rescue group in my area, I want to do something I love in my later years!
