I was away from home this week and only had time for a short blog. So here it is: a few brief thoughts on some prominent Senior Citizens and their work. What a world this would be if we were half as productive as those listed below.
Albert Einstein: Taught until his death at the age of 75. Some of his work was published after his death.
Thomas Edison: Worked on a railroad electrification program until his death in 1934. This project served commuters until 1984.
Benjamin Franklin: While famous for his efforts during the War of Revolution he was governor of Pennsylvania at the age of 82 several years after the war.
George Burns: Played God at the age of 80 and lived another 20 years.
Ronald Reagan: Served as President of the United States at 70 years of age.
Jimmy Carter: Born in 1924, served as President of the United States at the age of 51. Carter is still active today a statesman and humanitarian.
Dick Clark: Happy New Year at 82. I remember Americian Bandstand as a teenager, now Dick is still putting on a rockin’ show.
Betty White: Entertaining to young and old at 89.
Clint Eastwood: The star of Rawhide (the theme song is still recognizable today) starred or directed more movies than I can count or remember. “Make my day.”
Sir Sean Connery: He starred as the original James Bond fifty years ago.
