Staying Active in our Senior Years | Beaufort County Now | As we get older, we sometimes begin to doubt our ability to "make a difference" in the world.

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
    As we get older, we sometimes begin to doubt our ability to "make a difference" in the world. It is at these times that our hopes are boosted by the remarkable achievements of other seniors who have found the courage to take on challenges that would make many of us wither. Many are inspirational to all of us seniors!

    Harold Schlumberg is such a person....


    "I've often been asked, 'What do you old folks do now that you're retired?' Well, I stay active and happy I'm fortunate to have a chemical engineering background and one of the things I enjoy most is converting beer and scotch into urine.

    Then I take a jog out to the shed and piss on pictures of Maxine Waters, Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren & Diane Feinstein!

    I do this several times every day. I really enjoy it and get my exercise too!"

    Harold is an inspiration to all of us old folks.

He is a funny guy just being Spencer.
