Derek the Plumber
Derek has been my plumber for 30+ years. Can you dial your plumber without looking up the phone number? 860-232- . . . That is what happens when you have lived in the same old house for three decades.
I ran into Derek on a dreary day in West Hartford Center. Derek had successful cataract surgery in October and he has lost 60 pounds since November. He is feeling and looking great. At 68, he has no intention of retiring and he still plays hockey once a week. One of the other players is 79, so Derek says he has at least 11 more years to play!
