Still Working At Age 93


By Jay Michaels

Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Claude Brown moved to Twin Falls in 1919, and opened his downtown furniture store shortly after that.

Claude's son Doug is now 93 years old, and still works at the store five days a week. He's especially skilled at running the vacuum cleaner, and he started working in his dad's store 73 years ago.

Doug Brown says, "I still go out and measure for carpet, that keeps your mind alert. Every job is different, and has to be figured differently. As long as I can do it, I'll keep doing it. When it gets to where it's kind of rusty, I'll have to just hang it up."

Now there are three generations working at Claude Brown's. Doug Brown always has something to do there, and he's been fortunate to avoid the health problems other people usually have.
