Donner Going Strong at 100

Just wanted to wish a happy belated birthday to Louise Donner of Denver, who turned 100 in August and was featured recently in the Denver Post. She still plays tennis twice a week and is enjoying good health. When asked for her words of advice, she replied:

"I don't have any advice for anyone because they wouldn't take it. Except that I grew up on the idea that fresh air was the best thing for you. Go play outdoors."

Amen, Mrs. Donner, amen.

You heard the lady; go play outdoors, friends! And see you on the trail.
