Plenty of old people work. My sister got a holiday job and one of her co-workers is 78. This old lady has been working since she was 14, and according to my Sis she is a dynamo. She goes home from an 8 hour shift in the warehouse and starts dinner and mows her lawn!

I had lunch down at my favorite oyster bar today, and talked to a tourist from Chicago. He aid he was 72, and still going strong at his insurance job in Chicago.

I am just a damn slacker.
