I can't maintain the pace I used to and don't want to. Swinging a brush, pushing a chisel, or working in the shop on anything. A four hour day is the new norm. My wife has been asking me to stop working ladders and digging holes and packing bags of cement seems like jobs for someone else now. She thinks seventy five is old enough to slow down, and I'm thinking she's right. Been doing this since I was twenty and it's all I know. What comes next?

Im in the same mode. About 4 hours a day. Ill probably continue for a year. Im 70 this year. Ill probably get into furniture making as a hobby. I have all the tools. Weve been travelling most of the winter. Well probably go on fewer, but longer vacations next year.

I'm doing the same as Duncan and Sam Staffan, woodworking. Moved to Texas to get out of the snow, built a new shop, got all the tools. I'll still make 3D signs and easy vinyl lettering on trucks but no more digging, no more concrete, no more setting poles, and no more deadlines. Hopefully lots of woodworking at MY pace.
