I am 56 years old and I am from Earth. The first time I slept outside it was OK. Luckily it was summertime in the Okanagan. I have tons all kinds of work including landscaping, turf grass management, auto mechanic and tile setter. The things that have contributed to becoming homeless has been a rash of bad luck. Working makes me happy, but I am not able to work right now. If I had unlimited resources, and I am not that keen on traveling I would like to build JHS houses in every single community in Canada!!
