oops56-

Why stop making stoves? You get a kick out of trying new ways, so you are keeping your mind active. That is important exercise for our brain cells as we get older. (Notice I said WE.) Heck, if you are in your shop, your wife at least knows where you are. Install some sort of intercom so that she can call you in for lunch or whatever chores she might need you to help get done.

Just be sure to invent or fix something for your wife's benefit every once in a while.
