All I know is HVAC.

When I talked about retiring, I was almost seventy.

I still felt like a young guy and knew I could work circles around the young guys I worked with.

I started wondering what I was going to do with my time once I retired. My wife told me I could take up a hobby, or we could do some traveling. I didn’t think traveling was a good idea because of the cost of fuel. I told her all I know is HVAC. I was in the office last week, and I sat down to talk to the owner of the HVAC company. I told him I was considering retiring. As much as he hated to see me go, he understood I was getting tired. He said he was sixty-five, and he noticed how he was slowing down. I wasn’t slowing down, but I noticed the aches and pains more. All the injuries I received in the past, seemed to be revisiting me on a regular basis. I had been working as an HVAC technician for almost 40 years, and I was getting tired, but I didn’t want to be lazy. I told the boss I had a job to get done, and headed out of the office. A week later, Pete, the owner of the HVAC company, called me into his office. He told me he had a part time job for me. They were looking for HVAC instructors, and he immediately thought of me. I knew everything about HVAC systems, and I had patience with new technicians, since I had been a mentor for years. I asked when I started, because I was putting in my retirement notice.
