by national youth church group.

A nice little local tv news story out of my dad's home town. The not-from-this-state reporter messes up the guy's last name and the church's name but that's ok, sort of used to it. Guess how old the guy is they interview...??

Kids lookedlike they were actually working which was impressive. Learning a habit that will stand them head a shoulders above others forever. 86

It is always good to see youngsters with something in their hands besides electronics and fast food!

wolf and trappintime bracketed his age (81). Doc, you just oulling my chain, 92....!

A tough old Kraut, had open-heart 35+ years ago, 2 angioplasties (and then I guess the heart decided to behave), a serious bout of abdominal bleeding about 5-6 years ago (lost a lot of weight then). Still builds kitchen cabinets and is probably a better bird shooter with his 1 good eye than I'm with both of mine. I don't get to see him enough although the boys and I should go down there catfishing this summer. I'll miss him when he's gone...

To be honest PC , the guy doesn't look 81, I've seen guys younger who looked much older, that is why I guessed high. Hope he lives to be 100.

Thanks for the posts guys!!

I out the same post on Tman the same night and got absolutely no comments. Yet, a thread about Muslim refugees in the Idaho raping a 5-year girl gets 10 pages. Yes, I understand such a horrible crime and its circumstances is news worthy but use some scaling and maybe respond to good uplifting news as well...? I swear some of those guys couldn't get out of bed in the morning without getting some bad news first. I'm far from being a saint but if you believe that we'll all have to answer for what we did with our time on Earth, I wonder what Jesus will say to the constant live in total negativity crowd...??
