    I think when my uncle was in the nsg home with late stages of dementia, he would take the sink off the wall. He had worked with his hands all his life. probably in his mid to late 80.

    Reminds me of when I was a CNA, I found a gentleman on the floor under a table in the dining room. When I asked him what he was doing, he told me he was trying to fix the thing-a-majig on the train. Apparently, he used to work on trains.

    I could see my dad doing that. He's been a mechanic 33 years.

    A close relative of the old car guy, is the old tractor guy. Talk for hours about John Deere tractors. The clue is the hat. Green with yellow letters.
