My dad was still working at 78 too. Before he turned 79, he was gone. Not much of a retirement, although he seemed happy being a one-man barber shop. Kind of like Floyd in Mayberry. Old timers sitting around the shop, watching tv, shooting the breeze. Some of his customers didn't hardly have a hair on their heads...it was more of a social gathering.
