“Where’s John?” Red asked.

“In the workshop; he’s exercising he said,” Mike answered.

“Exercising? In the shop? How?”

“I have no idea.”

The two old timers shared a look of concern and then made their way to the shop to check out their younger protégé’s exercise routine.

Even before they got within sight they could hear a rattle coming from above.

Both stood with their mouth agape as they watched the muscular John moving steadily across the rafters of the shop, hand over hand as he traversed the extension ladders stored above.

“Son of a gun!” Red exclaimed.
