114 Years Young and Still Impressing the Ladies

Born in 1896, Walter Breuning is the oldest man in the world at 114 years of age. Amber Colton interviewed Mr. Breuning for the Mens’ Journal online feature, “Survival Skills.” It seems the super-centenarian has learned a few things over the years and felt comfortable sharing his knowledge. The result is a delightful Q&A, and I thank my much-loved cousin, Jo, for bringing this to my attention. Please click here to read the interview. Mr. Breuning’s advice on life is worth reading.
If you scroll around a bit, you’ll see similar Q&A articles featuring the likes of Jimmy Buffet, Jeff Bridges and Donald Trump, among others. I read them all and found that, secondary to Mr. Breuning, it was The Donald who held my interest. I especially liked his answer to this question:
The Donald: They’re smarter than we are.
It also occurred to me that at 114, Mr. Breuning would consider me to be a spring chicken at the age of 50. This proves the point that things are all about perspective, and from his, I am not an old bagger. That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.
Til next time –
