Nonagenarian Skates Away from Pitfalls of Old Age
Ted Lewis knows the conventional wisdom that exercise leads to better physical health, but he chose an unconventional form at an unconventional age: he took up roller-skating at the age of 68, and recently skated to his 90th birthday party. This World War II veteran skates well; he recently qualified for the national competition of United States of America Roller Sports. He is also a model plane enthusiast, continuing his interest in mechanics he carries from a career at Western Electric. Lewis advises that chances are you will not live a long and healthy life "if you allow yourself to become angry and upset."
