Growing Old

"Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional." -- Chili Davis

After experiencing some next-day pain after showing my students that I can, in fact, do a one-handed cartwheel, I thought a bit about where that drive to stay young comes from.  I didn't have to look far for a shining example.

Here's my dad, one month shy of 54, showing my cousin's oldest and then my ex-Air Force cousin how it's done.

Thanks, dad, for teaching me how to stay young!
