He has always been very active and loves cycling. On his 80th birthday he rode 80 miles on his bicycle. He wants to ride 90 miles on his 90th.
Upon hearing this, his new doctor said, "How about 100 on your 100th?"
To which grandpa replied, "How about 110 on my 110th?"
And the doctor exclaimed, "Man! I really like you!!!" And we all laughed.
He eats healthier than almost anyone I know. He was juicing and drinking green smoothies long before they were so popular. Our family always joked that he will outlive us all.
Having him live here and seeing how dedicated he still is about his health and his commitment to getting, staying and keeping healthy and also how age is affecting him has brought a lot of interesting thoughts to my mind. Right now they are just bouncing around my head in unformed non coherent pieces, butI hope to go over some of these over the next little while as I process through them.
