Okay, here are the rules for OFA (old farts anonymous):
[compiled from my own experience and my medico wife's advice]

1. Double the number of lamps and wattage of the bulbs over your workspace.
2. Get a proper chair, your back will rebel if you spend a few hours in the same position, now that you are ooold.
3. Invest in a gaggle of "helping hands"-- don't ask your hands to be still when you know they can't.
4. Get a good magnifier, strong. Eye strain is your weakness, so don't ask too much of yourself- that's vanity.
5. Aging screws with your internal thermostat- dress for the temperature whether you think you need it or not.
6. Build a spray booth. You need it.
7. If you haven't noticed it already, alcohol in any form effects you differently now. Watch it.
8. Naprosin (naproxen sodium) is your friend.

59 and refusing to grow up. Got a kick out of the Advil food group. Arthritis in my shoulders has me now including Advil as a garnish. Am very glad I have a fun hobby that makes me forever 8
