BRIX saidI've never quite understood young folks who make fun of old folks. We're all on the same road, wending our way down the same path. Why shouldn't an 85 year old woman have an iPad?
Ditto that. I have so much respect for older people who are still active and take care of themselves. The father of one of my friends turned 80 this year. He and I both competed in a 5K this spring. His time was 21 minutes (and some seconds), considerably faster than most guys half his age, including me.
He's also very much in tune with the latest technology. He talks to me about downloading music, iPads, Android, and USB 3.0. The man is 80 years old and to hear him talk you'd think he never expects to die.
Some people seem think if you're over 70 you should be in a nursing home waiting to die.
