Mike calls these "Sweet Little Old Lady" stories... But I notice that the men don't rate the honorific of "Sweet"...

On a positive note - I ran into one of my "little old men".

His route used to be on one of my routes, but they put it on a different one. Until he was 80, he would repair my lawnmowers.

He's 83 now.

No longer repairs mowers, but still cuts his own grass, and keeps his mower in good shape.
When I asked him how he stays so healthly, he replied, "The secret to t long life is to keep moving. And eat oatmeal."

Then he paused, and said, "Lots and lots of oatmeal."
