this is what 80 looks like

Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young. ~ Henry Ford

I remember thinking my grandparents were old when they were most likely in their late 50s/early 60s. Funny how that changed as I approached 50 and my view on age. Particularly with the people we are surrounded by who are unbound by the digits of their years. As a cast in point, these are from my Father in Law's 80th birthday. A surprise party held in York Maine at the Stage Neck Inn. A gathering of long time friends who are more like family on a classic late summer evening with a full moon on the rise. As a person who's played tennis most every day up until a year ago when his shoulder froze, who to this day cycles regularly and continues to work on his book, he is a great example that age is an attitude and less of a number. xxo martin!
