      For sure, 60 wasn't long enough. I was still working at 55 doing the same things as I was at 20 but only recently I've slowed down, the heat seems to get to me now more than in the past. I sometimes wonder how these people in their late 80's and 90's run these marathons, to me that is pushing one's luck! People often have these genetic problems that just don't crop up until it's too late. One Uncle lived with an enlarged heart and died at 96, so the answer isn't always cut and dried.

      I was shocked to see this myself when I turned the news on when I got back from the beach earlier. You just do not expect to see things like this and especially at that age. I remember watching him in Smith and Jones.
