I'm 82 years old with the stiffness and slow movement I'm entitled to. I live on a very small farm in South Dakota but since 2010 my wife of 60 years and I go to eastern Tennessee for the winters. I'm a retired Naval Aviator. When I got my Wings of Gold they told me "You are now a Naval Aviator and you can do anything!" They were right too! My major interest at present (besides girl watching) is wood working. We have 5 children. 8 grandchildren and one great grandson. Most of my projects are toys and furniture for kids and a few furniture type items for our church. Most of my wood is reclaimed stuff that I am constantly watching for. I'm also using quite few tools that belonged to my wife's grandfather, including his forge and anvil and tap and die set and numerous wrenches. I'm living proof that old doesn't mean useless. For yard equipment I owns an Ariens ZTR, A Murray riding mower some might call a tractor, an old Allis-Chalmers 207 with snowblower and mower deck, a Toro LX500 mower, a 1940 Farmall H carrying a 72 inch mower deck, a 1941 Massey Harris 81 (retired from the mower deck business) that was purchased new by my father-in-law in Benson, MN, a 196? JD 3010 w/loader that I mount a 72 inch snowblower on and a potload of pushmowers that just seem to gravitate to my shed and numerous small engines that any farm accumulates. I'll need help later with the Toro LX500.
