Anyway, today, I’ve long since owned up to my hair and rocked the look of the distinguished old gentleman, with my occasional excursions in golf adding to the sophisticated air that I’ve made for myself. Of course, just because I’ve started acting like an old gentleman doesn’t mean I’ve given up on living life like youngsters do.
There’s more to aging with grace than just accepting that you’re better off not being faddish. It worked for Paul Newman, and it’ll work for me. The golf games I still play may not be about winning, but they encourage me to get out for fresh air and stay as fit and as mentally active as I can at this age. They say you’re only as old as you feel, and the missus and I continue to feel like the hip, young cats we were all those years ago.

Moreover, spending time with our grandkids reveals a lot of common interests. Besides her interest in golf, my oldest granddaughter Tiffany’s become a huge fan of our old records and classic movie collection. She and her grandmother have matinee night.
