Old people don't get into FB or cells?
Oh, man, I better get the Hell off ATS then.
The elders I listen to are really
up there in age and you wouldn't believe how much they can advise you on. My mother-in-law, for instance,
will help you pick the best players and teams to watch in either either the NHL or MLB. She's 86. My father-in-law, at 90, is nuts about golf and has
a yearly membership in the local golf club. Also in the Canadian Legion, where he was pipe major with a well-known pipe band for 25 years and
travelled the world. An aunt, also in her late 80's, has a memory that can recount the history of almost everyone who has lived in a town of 15,000,
even the ones who passed away 70 years ago.
Then there were people I knew outside of my family, like William Commanda, who was able to relate traditional First Nations oral histories that took
days to say. He was in his late 90's.
I'm heading for 68 and, compared to those folk, I feel like an idiot.
