I took up skydiving when I was 60, and it is still my hobby. I've been solo diving since 61, and love it! I quit hospital nursing (L&D) at 65 but still work as a practitioner in busy health department. When I left the hospital, there were nurses in their 40s who would "disappear" when the elevator doors opened so they could avoid taking on another patient. I never hid. I could manage two laboring mothers, a triage patient, break down the labor bed by myself, play OR tech as needed (which included cleaning the OR room). There are many young "old" nurses! At 71, I'm now at the point I want to play and have plans to travel and live throughout South and Central America, as soon as my house gets on the market (which I'm busy painting inside) and sold! Thanks to my mom's genes!!! Old is when I'm dead.
