That's truly badass and amazing!
I'm knocking on 21, and can't figure out how my wife puts up with me!

None of my brothers or sisters have heard them even argue. Even tempered. Pretty chill. First thing my dad always asks when I come over is “ Can I get you a beer?” Then we bullshit about his latest thing he is working on in the yard, or the stock market or current event. He’s a retired Mechanical Engineer, lots of patents, and still builds shit around the house and does the stock market in his office for a few hours everyday after he walks 3 miles and rides his stationary bike. Says nothing hurts when I ask him. Good Genes I guess. They travel all over doing 5k’s with my brother who does 1/2 marathons. Raised 5 Sons, 4 daughters, Corp of Engineers in WW2. Just great people. Mom was a nurse when they met then just raised kids her whole life and did Meals on Wheels since I was little and volunteered at the hospital and other places everyday. Still does to this day. She also goes to LA Fitness everyday and can beat all my sisters arm wrestling 😂. They both drive and are really sharp. They may out live me. I’m 54, I’m number 8, Oldest child is 69. No health issues in any of us. No history of cancer or anything. Pretty fortunate. It’s crazy knowing my parents only have a few years left but they lived it well. Really proud of them. Mom is number 11 of 13 children. She has 11 brothers. Irish Catholic. She’s 💯 Irish. St. Paddy’s day is always a big deal at the house. Thought I would just share some good news here with my fellow boaters 👍

What a great story! Good for them. My parents retired at 50 and I can't seem to get them to do much of anything. Traveling was the only thing they wanted to do but since Rona they haven't been anywhere.
