    Sounds like a plan with limited options, Kevin. :o

    I started collecting at the age of 14. I joined NAWCC at the age of 20 although I had been attending meetings as a guest for a few years already. There was only one other person my age in the chapter at that time (Southern California Chapter No.4). Gradually I have been moving up the ranks, agewise. I slowed down my activity a bit when I had a daughter and through her early years, but have made up for lost time after she became independent. I am now approaching 65 and have as much enthusiasm for the hobby as I ever did.

    My late father (passed away at 76 yrs.) always said he was going to be like the elderly Scot who said if he knew where he was going to be on the day he was to die, he'd keep away from the place! Celebrating my 75th Christmas. Best to you all!

    I will be 80 next July. I started collecting clocks in Canada in 1965 as I was finishing my schooling and starting our family. I did not join the NAWCC until 1971 after we had moved back to the U.S.

    Our two oldest children are Californians as am I and our youngest was born in St. Catharines, Ontario. My wife is a Texan and the major benefit of my time in the Air Force.

    I'm 60 next year, but I can't claim to be a horologist. I have a few clocks and watches.
    Nick, lots to learn, late starter.
