72 , should know better than to still be riding motorcycles (just got back from riding PCH in CA)
I still enjoy going to work ( most days!) I make signs. Every night work on flintlocks. This is where engraving comes in. I am not that good at it, but it's fun!
I am 55 years old. I have a wife, children, 2 grandsons. And my workshop. Engraving was my hobby when I was a police accountant. After retirement, engraving became the meaning of life for me. I do not promote the art of engraving, I live for it I breathe, it's in my blood.
I was 73 in July.
I started my apprenticeship in 1959 at age 14. Still going "not" so strong, arthritis is slowing me down but when I concentrate on my work the pain fades away. It returns only during the night... I never wanted to retire, now the pain forced me into semi retirement.
I appreciate being alive in this beautiful world, at my old age more than ever.
