    I was riding my bike home from tennis today (you got that right?? almost 70 years old and riding my bike home from tennis??) Anyway I saw a penny on the side of the road. I decided since I was on the bike I wouldn't bother to stop. Then I saw another penny. Then another one. I stopped and went back and picked up $1.73 worth of change.
    He'll be 70 this August and still plays on the #1 court against all players at the club he belongs too.

    A younger player asked one time how he does all that running around at his age. Dad said, "I don't run around. I just hit my shot and walk to where my opponent is going to return it." I guess there's something to be said for experience.

    Thanks for the smile. After a really negative and mean-spirited post directed to me, it was much needed.

    I hate old guys like that.

    (Of course, I can't wait to become one.)

    I played this guy in squash once!!!

    If I had been able to make him take 4 steps per shot he would have died before the end of the match, but he only took one to where I returned it. I took about 6 per shot, one shot per corner per point, and I died.
