Still in the Game

Here are some clips of my dad, playing tennis with his son-in-law and his grandsons on Thanksgiving Day. They didn't exactly tear up the court out there, but, since my dad is almost 83 years old, I was just thankful that it was possible at all.

My dad is a pretty awesome guy, and I'm sure, having inherited his genetic qualities, I'll be out on the court myself when I'm a great-grandmother.
Oh wait.
I've never played tennis.
Well, I'll probably be reading up a storm, tearing up the library.
Just you wait and see.

I am only 68...when I grow up I want to be like your dad. Any day we wake up on the right side of the grass is a very good day for a game!

Any elderly gentleman without a paunch looks pretty good to e, and your Dad looks very spry.

How nifty! I won't play at 83, either - that's a game I couldn't play at 13. Reading. You've got that right! Great post!

There is so much we can still learn from our parents or their example, isn't there? I enjoyed your post immensely.
