Garage
My dad pretty much retired in his early 60s but was still doing small projects in the garage until his mid 70s.
He was a weldor by trade and will be 90 at the end of this month. 90 weldor years are like 120 years for the rest of us....
He was pretty healthy until about 6 or 7 years ago when he had a (some?) mini strokes and had developed Alzheimer's like symptoms.
Now he sleeps most of the time and is losing weight. Hope he makes it to his birthday but also hope he doesn't have to suffer too much longer.
He and my mom were able to travel and spent winters in Arizona until purchasing health coverage became to costly to justify.
