Comments on the race of life.

Oh no – he died

I have had on my computer for quite while, a little video about America’s oldest World War Two Veteran. I was going to include it in a blog post – but I never did. I found the video inspirational especially since the old guy at 109 was still enjoyed cigars (which he did not inhale) and chocolate and other comforting activities. The video has been criticised as “slow” so that most people never watched to the end. But I did.  It was worth it.

Today I discovered Richard Overton lived till he was 110.

But he died nine months ago. RIP Richard Overton. I thought you were great! And I’ve posted about you at last.

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!

Please do comment! That's part of the fun...
