You’re Never Too Old

Yesterday I covered a 100th birthday celebration at a Georgetown retirement home  for Jim,  the man on the right, for the Williamson County Sun.  While I don’t usually post birthday parties, this time’s an exception  because of these few moments observed.  The couple at left congratulating the honoree,  Joy and Rufus, were neat.   When introducing myself, I asked if they were husband and wife, to which Joy replied with a smile that matched her name “We’re boyfriend and girlfriend.”   Joy and Rufus are both 90.   Not wanting to veer coverage away from the birthday fellow, I didn’t offer the photo to the paper.  It wasn’t germane.   Maybe you had to be there, but it was a mighty sweet thing to see.
