Repair tects that are really old and still working

O good thing about repairing horns is that it can be done by tecks that are really old. I have known tecks in their nineties still doing good repair work.

In my case I am seventy-four and still at it and have no plans to retire. It is the type of work that you can do if you still have use of all your senses. It is no problem.

I see it this way. A day is twenty-four hours...eight for sleeping....eight for working ...and the other eight to relax and have fun. Why retire.

Some people dream all their life of reaching sixty-five so they can retire. Not me.I guess I will die while I am repairing a horn.

Ken, I applaud your attitude. I am now looking to find my niche after going back to school (computer repair) so I can be in your shoes. Loving, or even liking what you do, and being able to do it indefinitely are where we should all want to be.
