Busy

At 89 years old, Dad faithfully keeps the coal furnace fueled at Reeves Motor Company. Several times a day, Mom drives him to the garage where he shovels coal and carefully navigates steep steps with minimal eyesight. 2012

"Keeps Going" is the layout I made in 2009. Journaling: "At 86, Dad keeps the old furnace going at the garage by shoveling coal in it seven or eight times a day".
