In Awe

My father-in-law came out of hospital a week ago. Yesterday he drove up into town, walked round the market, then dropped in on us on his way home. Elsewhere on the planet, Judy's mother- who is about the same age- had her purse snatched outside her apartment block. Instead of tamely falling over and breaking her hip, she yelled out and gave chase- with the result that the thief was apprehended within a block or two and she got her purse back. I'm in awe of these remarkable old people. Will I be as resilient and feisty when- and if- I  get to 80+?
