    My hubby has been self-employed for over 40 years.
    He works from home.

    Let’s see. Problems from being self-employed:

    - No paid vacation

    - No sick leave

    - No office parties

    - No water cooler gossip

    - You have to put up with a lot of swearing from your employees because you can’t fire yourself.

    - No one to pass the buck to.

    - You get disrespected for not having a “real job”because you work from home.

    (people call at all hours of the day and night, think you should do them special favors: charge less than “real” businesses, give away labor, let them pay when they feel like)

    ASPEN — Chris Cassatt, award-winning photographer, designer and, above all — in his mind at least — cartoonist, died Wednesday morning at his midvalley home after a two-month battle with lymphoma. He was 66.

    Cassatt’s photographs of Aspen were a major feature of The Aspen Times through the 1970s and ‘80s, and he created a modernized layout of the newspaper in the early 1970s, working secretly with then-editor Nick Pabst and launching the design when Publisher Bil Dunaway was out of town — with both men holding their breaths to see if they still had jobs when Dunaway returned. They shouldn’t have worried — their design was a prize-winning success and established the look of the newspaper for decades to come.

    But Cassatt’s true passion and greatest success — locally and nationally — was his cartoons.

    His most widely known achievements have come in recent years, when he has been responsible for the internationally syndicated comic strip “Shoe,” which appears in some 500 newspapers.
