“Harold is my new inspiration,” Howard Hight reports.
Howard, a graduate of Malcolm Campbell High School in Montreal who now lives in the USA, has shared with us the following message, circulating as an email, which he has affirmed is fine for me to post:
The Importance of an Occupation after Retirement!
As we get older we sometimes begin to doubt our ability to “make a difference” in the world. It is at these times that our hopes are boosted by the remarkable achievements of other “seniors” who have found the courage to take on challenges that would make many of us wither.
Harold Schlumberg is such a person:
THIS IS QUOTED FROM HAROLD:
“I’ve often been asked, ‘What do you do now that you’re retired?’
“Well…I’m fortunate to have a chemical engineering background and one of the things I enjoy most is converting scotch, wine and whiskey into urine. It’s rewarding, uplifting, satisfying and fulfilling. I do it every day and I really enjoy it.”
Harold is an inspiration to us all.
