I'll be extremely happy if I can still fish at 80.

That was great!

Sad to think it may have been his last day's fishing but to do that at 100 is beyond most of our dreams.

At the end of most days on the farm I feel like 100! Ha! :Chuckle:

Wonderful stuff !!! The Gentleman ties knots without spectacles, and moves faster than I do !!! A joy to see that ... thank you Sir.
