"You Are Never Too Old" - Jimmy Cliff, 1963

As John continues to quietly recover here at home, let me pass along a story we first heard in the British press a few days ago.

If you've ever felt like you were too old to do something, you should take a look at the story of Eric King-Turner and his wife Doris. It'll change your mind!

The King-Turners are on the way to New Zealand from England. So what's so interesting about that, you say? Well, Eric is 102 years old, while Doris is a mere 87! And sponsored by Doris, who is a New Zealander herself, Eric has become the oldest ever emigrant from Britain -- he's following Doris to a new life in New Zealand!

Here's a link to the story.

Having myself changed continents for love, this story really touches my heart.

Gavin, that caused the biggest laugh that has come out of me in about a week or so! THANK YOU!

(WHY didn't I think of that myself, I'm wondering....!!!!)

That's a very neat story. A reminder to us all that life is for living.
