I am so sorry for the "elderly" man that was hurt on the 24th, and hope he is doing better. But, please refrain from calling a 67 year old "elderly"....thanks. I am 67 and feel far from elderly. My 94 year old mother is elderly not those of us who are in our 60's!!

Barbara, you just made my day! I keep on feeling like I'm not a youngster anymore, but in the great scheme of things, I am!
