That's awesome. My dad is 91 and still farming. I hope I can still do what I love if I make it to that age.


Right now I’m having amnesia and déjà vu at the same time. I think I’ve forgotten this before.

Congrats,
My dad is 90, snared coyotes last winter, but I see he is starting to fade pretty fast. In the last few weeks he is using a walker more and more. We don't let him on the tractors any more as he gets off without putting them in park first. He only drives on the farm, we try (not always successfully I might add) to keep him from going to pick up roadkill deer.

That's really cool that your dad's still got "git up and go" at his age. Wishing him a Happy Birthday and many more!
