Last week my next-door neighbor, Carroll, had a birthday. He turned 99 years old. He is an absolute inspiration. When I asked him what it felt like to turn 99, he said "It's better than the alternative". His goal is to break the age reacord in his family (102).
Carroll has lived in his house with his wife, Martha (age 94), since 1942. They still live independently (with a little help from friends a family) and enjoy the good life. I'm looking forward to the party next year.
