I’ve been watching a lot of YouTube videos lately – on my 55 inch tv, which makes it so much more pleasant.
I’m finding all sort of things. Yesterday, I came upon this video “Interviews With Elderly People Throughout the US,” filmed in 1929. Some of these folks were over 100 years old! Most were in their 80s and 90s. But listen to them – so full of life at 100!
Imagine, one guy says, “I was born in 1827, I graduated school in 1845 . . . ” 1827! 1845!
One man is 70 years old or so and he’s retiring from his job as a train conductor. You can see him jump off the train and speak to the camera. He tells about starting his career in the 1850s, now it’s 1929 and he is retiring. Another old lady is 103, I belive, she dances the waltz with a guy!
This is great, it’s worth a watch. There are other videos in this series too.
