I bought a garden ornament a few days ago. It is an old man smoking a pipe in an arm chair.
Dad was very against smoking.
Somebody asked me if it reminded me of my Dad.
I don't think it did.
Dad tended to want to be up doing something all of the time so he would probably be standing for say 30 minutes and then have a sit down for a few minutes and start again.
He was also a silver surfer and learnt how to do things like letters on the laptop although he noticed we were sending less and less letters due to e mail and the scanner.
He did some spread sheets.
Dad was a bit disabled towards the end of his life but he did his utmost to overcome his problems.
I don't think Dad really ever thought he was nearly 90.
Probably the fact he did not have to take any long term medication helped.
