    That's great! In my own case I had a long career in engineering that was very rewarding but unlike you it was not integral to how I perceive myself. I have a wide range of interests and I enjoy being able to pursue them.

    Two of my best employees are over 70 and will outwork most of the kids.

    I manage a business unit in Casper. Odd town, but I like it.
