Even as he acknowledges he’s thinking about his next chapter, Jones said he is not quite sure how he wants to write the end of this one. “I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up,” he said, with a chuckle. “I am looking at retirement, but I don’t know how you even define retirement at this point in my life. I am not going to one day not go to work and not do anything.” >click to read< 09:07
