I'll defer to you on the calendar age thing but I think you're really one of
those born on the 29th and actually are 17 1/2.
You know ... at least in your case ... the older you are the faster you get.
I really enjoy the old salts like Bill Burke who admits to 81, Wally Parks
and Don Francisco both a few years older than that, and then the kids like
Fred Larsen. And they talk about people being "the worlds oldest
teen-ager," just look what we have to look forward to. There are several
others who will not admit to their years for some reason and you would never
know exactly how old they really are. Certainly not their actual age.
