A heart warming story from NZ
« on: February 13, 2008, 03:09:31 AM »
NZ welcomes our oldest immigrant..I love what he had to say:

"It's a wonderful new adventure and I would say to anyone that if you want to do something you should do it straight away while you can. What's important is that when I'm 105 I don't want to be thinking 'I wish I had moved to the other side of the world when I was 102'."

How cute are they!  To make a big life change at 102yrs is inspiring. 

When I was in highschool, we had a substitute teacher who was in her mid-80's.  Her hubby was in his late 80's, pushing 90.  I loved watching them come on to campus.  He always had on a bowtie, jacket, and fadora, even in the stiffling temps of S. Louisiana.  He had his cane in one hand, and her hand in the other.  He carried her bag and escorted her to the classroom door where he kissed the back of her hand and told her to have a good day.  At the end of the day, he'd be right outside the classroom door to pick her up.  It was so endearing and terribly sweet.
