It's hard to believe that my Daddy could possibly be that old. He still lives by himself (with a lot of help from us, but still), and his mind is still sharp, which makes his age even the more amazing. Add to that the fact that he's been legally blind for 40 years, and you can see why I'm particularly proud to be able to brag about him.
It's fun getting him to talk about his Good Old Days. I wish I had written all his stories down over the years, but I've only come to value such things as I have gotten a little age myself.
Just think of the things that have happened in his lifetime, and the inventions that we take for granted today that didn't even exist when he was little. Will things change as much in our lifetime as they have changed in his?
