I turn 84 in July. I have yet to discover much that I like about being 83.
My friend, the Rev. Hal Eaton, another ancient warrior, says that he isn’t afraid of dying; it’s just being old that he doesn’t like.
One of the several reasons I came to Galax 25 years ago was because my quick scan of the obituary page made it possible for me to believe that any area resident, who died before making 80, was a quitter.
