Today, I'm sending out a little card via the blog to a gentleman who is celebrating his 93rd birthday. He retired from teaching at the age of 65 but continued working as a substitute till he was 87 years old. Yes he quit subbing but then he started a small business where he created handmade wooden items he's been selling at the farmer's market during the summer and at winter craft fairs.
He's been muttering something about retiring from that but I honestly do not see that happening. He and his wife live on their own in a small apartment overlooking the ocean. He still drives and both are still independent.
He's been a great role model for people showing one does not have to slow down once retired. This is for him.
