    I am old enough to retire but just can't seem to do it.
    I do construction and actually enjoy going to work.
    I am a little slower than I was years ago but I make less mistakes to make up for it.

    That cutting firewood can be tough work.
    The house I grew up in was heated by a wood burning stove. We never had a furnace in it.
    When I got my first house I heated it with a wood burning stove for 25 years or so.
    I cut firewood every day of my life back then.
    Now days I flip the thermostat when I want heat.

    I don't ride bicycles anymore either . I quit riding them when I found out they made bikes with engines.
    The last bike I rode had a banana seat , angle wing handle bars , a sissy bar and a fat slick tire on the back.
    I think all yours needs is some tires and a good greasing up.
    You don't need brakes they will just slow you down.
    Besides at your age you need all the excitement you can get.

    I don't exercise the way I should...however, I do enjoy biking, kayaking, and hiking. I just need to make more time to do it. I should make it a more regular activity than I do.

    After my 17 year old chow mix quit walking with me about a year ago I quit also. She recently passed and I started walking the preserve again. It feels good even though I miss my buddy that I traveled over 15,000 miles of trail with. Life goes on tell it don't.

    I get to relax in the winter months, but during good weather there is always something to do around the place. Got all the firewood done this spring, our only heat. Just finished staining the house and garage/shop. They took 26 gallons of stain, the trim only a half gallon, but took as long to apply it as it did to stain. Now replacing all the gutters and moving the ladder a hundred times a day and going up and down is plenty of exercise. Finished the rebuild on the 8n tractor last month, sleeves, rings bearings, complete new valve train and a new clutch. Maybe I will take a day or two off after the gutters are done. Got another tractor that needs to have the PTO clutch replaced, but will work on it when it is a little cooler.

    Well , i have had motorcycles ever year since my jr year in hs. A 350 Moto Morini. The very first motor vehicle i had registered and licensed in my name. Had a motorcycle ever year except the 4 yrs i was in the service. Sold my last bike , last spring. When my wife and me had to struggle. To get it out of the shed, and it all most fell over on me. I can't bench press 500 lbs of motorcycle anymore
    And my wife doesn't need to blow out a knee joint tugging
    On a bike either. So it was time to put the motorcycle s
    Behind me. Have had a lot of good times Camping and touring on my bikes. Have gone to Bar Harbor Maine
    To ohio,Pennsylvania , Vermont Massachusetts , Connecticut . New Hampshire. Many good times. And some not so good. Was rear ended at 40 mph. Wile i was waiting to make a left hand turn.
    Anyways that's a little bit of my biking years.

    I was just funning with the bikes with engines part.
    I quit riding motorcycles quite a few years ago after a severe head injury from going down on one.
    And yes I was wearing a helmet. If I wasn't I wouldn't be here funning about bikes with engines part.
