74, but I think only 24, tanks, Bill.

77 is a comfortable age, especially when people say you don't look it.

I often feel my age, but I'm not going to act my age. I don't think you do, either.

Keep thinking young.

Told (some years ago, obviously) that she didn't look fifty, Gloria Steinem said, "This is what fifty looks like."

In the same spirit, Adelaide, this is what 77 acts like. Whatever you're doing, keep it up.
