A friend knows Norman Lloyd, who has been in the entertainment industry so long he used to play tennis with Charlie Chaplin! http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0516093/
He’s 102 now and is in several episodes of a TV series this year. A few years ago he was complaining to my friend that he should have gotten the lead in Nebraska instead of Bruce Dern. My friend said ‘Norman, you’re old!’
My aunt is 99 and is sharper than him. She does have to walk with a walker, but can still shake her thing when the music strikes her. She is the belle of the nursing home with her red lipstick and blond wig.
I’ll be 77 this summer, if I make it. And to quote the great Mickey Mantle, “If I hadda known I was going to live this long, Ida taken better care of myself.” 99 and still talks like a 21 year old. God Bless him.
Dude looks excellent for his age. Damn shame they locked him in an institution (apparently). He could kick some ass out on today’s streets. There are some 70-something young ladies looking for a man like him. I pray I’m still that feisty when I’m 65. Not long from now.
My dad kept it kicking like that until the liver cancer grabbed his lungs. He was 83. I miss his presence and his wisdom every day.
@Moe: 77!!?? Good lord, man, I thought you were in your 50s!
