These are the VanAndels. He is 90 this year and she is some undisclosed age close to that. They are totally cool! We stopped by their house … without calling ahead (or texting). They looked like this (not in sweats as I would be) and their home was clean and charming (mine would be a mess).
He was a commercial pilot for close to 50 years and then was a trainer for TWA for a long time. He flew one of those water planes and parked it on the lake where he lives. He only recently stopped flying. They both have Harleys and both still ride, though he admits that it’s becoming not so often or so wise. They still work on their home.. building and such. Amazing couple and set quite an example. BTW, that is single malt scotch in those glasses they hold.
“I am afraid of getting older. I am afraid of getting married. Spare me from cooking three meals a day—spare me from the relentless cage of routine and rote. I want to be free… I want, I want to think, to be omniscient.”
