Two Brothers in Their 90s - Livin' the Good Life

08:44 am - Two Brothers in Their 90s
We had a visit from Uncle Bill, my dad's brother, over the weekend. There was much reminiscing about their shared history, from the houses they grew up in, to the people they knew, to the planes they both piloted in WWII and on and on. One thing for sure, they share the same family genes to still be alive and kicking at their advanced ages. I think they enjoyed themselves and appreciated another chance to connect after years of being apart. Uncle Bill lives on the Central CA coast and doesn't get down here much anymore. He used to be a regular visitor. But, the fact that he drove for 7 hours in heavy traffic just to come here for a visit speaks well for his determination. In fact, I was amazed that he is still driving! He seems to do just fine. At 91, he's still quite alert and coordinated. He played fairly boisterously with Ollie (Bill has always been boisterous with kids.... that's his trademark. That, and teasing and testing mercilessly.) It's hard to believe he's as old as he is. He was a 5th grade teacher for many years back before retirement and had a reputation for being quite the popular character!
Here are the brothers just before Bill left last night.
