Centenarian

The magazine for which I occasionally write, gave me a unique opportunity. It's not often you meet someone who has lived to be 100, but a Centenarian who plays piano for her church every Sunday is even rarer.

I shot pictures this morning before Sunday service and she was in rare form. I had a delightful time talking to her while people filed in.

I can't give the details here because the story won't run for some time, but I think it will be a good one. I will share a picture.

Seeing her reminded me of the joke about older people. Two young women are talking about an older acquaintance.  The first young woman says to the second young woman, "I hope I look as good as our older friend when I get to 100." The other young woman says, "You don't look that good now."

  6. It seems to me a lot of musicians live a long productive life. That's one reason I keep trying guitar. I hope playing quality is't a factor in the equation.

  10. Good for her! She has music in her life and I bet this has helped her immensely. She is as old as the wonderful Olivia De Havilland
