Comments: They Need to Bottle it and Sell It

I had an uncle who was just like that. I remember he was talking about how he just couldn't keep up with the younger guys on the golf course - it took him twice as many shots to get to the green than it took them. I looked at him and asked if it was those pesky 70 year olds - and he just nodded his head. He was probably 92 at the time.

The secret is to keep moving - although good genes help too - LOL. What a wonderful example!

Here is a picture of Mary Pilates in a class - she's 87 and still works out daily. (neice of Joe Pilates)

She is (of course) second from the right.

BTW - I am in awe - I have trouble at times keeping my legs straight doing that - it's very tough on the quads! (among every other muscle group - I've even gotten foot cramps doing that exercise - LOL)
