    I had to get an old pick-up truck for personal reasons. Got a 2003 quad-cab RAM 1500. The Chassis on these beasts is a thing of beauty, the mechanical and electrical on the other hand, meh. Ram 1500.jpg

    I can't imaging a 2003 being an "old" pick-up! An "old" pick-up would be a 1965.

    Volunteering is one way to make your time worthwhile. Look around and find someplace that need a little help. You'll be paid handsomely, just not in cash.

    Like many of us, you have been a "things" type person. Find a "people" type place to volunteer. Developmentally Handicap Facilities are always shorthanded. I.E. Teaching a person with Downs Syndrome to build bird houses can be very rewarding. I speak with some authority having retired from the State of OK Dept of Human Services DDSD and presently developing technical services for Boeing and the Army. I refuse to retire again at only 76. If they finally force me out, I am going home to build myself a retirement cottage. Presently, I can only work a 7 hour day and I sleep more than I used to. But it is the hand I have been dealt. Forge on.

    Pass..... I've done that, and don't have the patients.
    I'll figure out something

    There is a lot of patients out there that need help.
    Some take more patience than others.
