I would take the job, but 55k is too little for my expertise. If you offer me a 1/3 share of the operation, I would consider lending you my expert advise. I would also accept your eldest daughter as payment, with the stipulation that she has a least one good tooth, and know how to cook corn bread.
I know my offer seems steep, but just look at all that you could get.
Could be in Plaquemines Parish. It is just South of New Orleans and protected by levees on both sides you can see while driving along the hwy. Plenty of grazing there when I spent a little time there post Katrina. Eerie feeling to watch the big boats pass by above you and only a levee between you and them.
