My mother's father (not "Grandpa," but "Boppa")is turning 81 in a month. He's been a farmer his entire life, and thinks nothing of lifting bales, laying irrigation pipe, or rolling under a machine to fix it. Rain or shine, he gets up early, has breakfast, and goes out to do the day's work. He's never thought of slowing down: Five years ago he bought a fancy new pickup for himself - after having quadruple bypass surgery. I hope I can depend on him for many more years.
