They finally get normal around 60, but their butts fall off, they get all wrinkly, their hair turns blue, and their hands turn into turkey feet...
they had already determined to live healthy lives, be physically fit, drink lots of milk, eat lots of produce, and enjoy a glass of wine - go on good long nature treks, ski, and of course, ride horses
! (or when in the 80's or 90's, just enjoy being with them) - As a member of MI Audubon, I frequently see physically fit seniors in track suits equipped with binocs out on trails! There are lots of seniors in their 80's (and one is 92!) who still downhill ski! My hay supplier is 81, and with a lifetime of healthy living and hard work has the body of a 50 yr old! As a 40 something, I feel about 32ish, and look forward to being a solid, strong, active 90 something someday! Lord willing :)
