"I like to talk to people," Breuning says. "All my life I've loved talking with people. I can talk forever." In addition to his busy media schedule—he fields calls frequently from local and national media—Breuning has received hundreds of letters from people all over the country. People visit him regularly at the Rainbow Retirement Center in Great Falls, all interested in hearing from the world's oldest man. Mostly he shares his life stories, including his experiences working 50 years with the Great Northern Railway, as well as what it was like for him to support his family at age 14 after his father passed away. "You only got $50 a month back then for working 12-hour days, seven days a week," he says. "That's how it was years ago. You didn't get overtime."
