Introduction: DIY for the "Health" of It.
I am 74 years old and have had triple negative breast cancer. Was only given maybe 3 years to live. That was 16 years ago. Then 8 years ago, I had open heart surgery. I was born with only one coronary artery (you should have 4). I have been a DIYer for 50 some years and my doctor told me that it is because of my hard working ethics, my blood found a new route to my heart, otherwise I would have died in my twenties. I have always loved to redo a piece of junk and turn it into a treasure. I love to create and come up with the most unheard of ideas. It is my passion. I do my own carpentry, porcelain tile work, window coverings and my own landscaping. I am happy for every year I add to my age. Thanks Hometalk for this great outlet for my creativity.
Great to get old.
