My good buddy turned 93 in March. He loves going out, getting his boots muddy and taking photos! Gives us all hope? :-)

I know a number of people in their 90s that are as sharp as tacks. You're right Derek, you just have to keep going, never give up, find something you like doing to stimulate the mind and walk, walk, walk! :) {L}

Thank you everyone. Phil is truly a remarkable man. Yes, he walks daily, has a scotch now and then, tinkers with Photoshop, and plays 9 holes of golf each week and even pulls his own golf cart! Cheers to you Phil
