Hmmmm, then he would have had to have started driving at age 15. Was it legal to drive younger than age 16 back then? I thought 16 was pretty much the standard for all states since the stone age. <smile>

One of my favorite cab drivers in Lynn, has been driving a cab for 66 years,
he is 81.

And this year, he came up with two predictions.

1. The Red Sox would get the World Series.

and

2.  That myself and my colleague who are both visually impaired would see
some day.

he has the first one right.

Who knows maybe he will be right on the other one too, smile.

But he is a great driver and great guy.

I knew a man once who was 93 and still driving an ambulance. I'm not making
it up either.  He lived to be 110.

I wholeheartedly agree. My Grandmother is almost eighty and she still lives
in her own apartment and does everything independently.

Hi all,


Original message:
Cindy and Cindy, there are four women named Monica on this list and
another woman who spells hers with a k in her name. I use my last name in
my signature, and so do they. It seems to work out well that way. Of
course, nicknames or handles that describe you are good too. Monika with
a k signs her messages as Monika in Maryland. Grandma Cindy, if you don't
like the grandma part, we can always change to calling you something
different.

This may be OT, but I have to speak up here. Our society is horrible when
it comes to dealing with our elders!  It's just like once you're over
fifty or sixty, you all of a sudden become persona non grata, or second
class.    Me, I prefer to see age as conferring wisdom, experience, and a
balanced view of things.  We're so stuck on the view that unless you're
young, you're worthless, that it permiates our whole society.  Men change
their hair color and so do women because they think they're ugly with gray
hair!  I'm not even going to go into the whole thing of face lifts and so
on to disguise one's age.

Well, folks, we better get used to it.  What with the increasing advances
in medical technology, our elder population is going to expand. We better
start using them as the advisors, counselors, experienced workers and
general all around good people that they are!

It may interest you to know that places like McDonalds, Wendys, Walmart
and so on are finally waking up to the fact that if they hire elders to do the work they used to think could be done best by kids, they are getting a competent, caring, and steady work force. I'd much prefer to be waited on
by an elder than by some kid who can't even make change!

Grandma Cindy, you are an elder, a respected, experienced one, and I think
you should be proud to be one!

<grrrrr>
Ann P.
