We ain't quite there yet, but I think 80 is close enough. Of course I've considered our class, CHS54, to be full of classics from the very beginning. And I won't be surprised if we all make it to that magic number of 100 or better before it's all over.
After all, statics show that if a person reaches the age of 80....there's no telling how long he or as she will last...100, 110 ....or as Susannah Jones has...116! And according to the Guiness World Records, that makes her the world's oldest livng person.
(Pardon me, but whenever I see a story about the "world's oldest person" I think of that joke about the TV reporter who was interviewing the 100 year old man and asked him what his secret to longevity was, and the reply was, "Well, it was the fact that my lips NEVER touched that evil ALCOHOL!"
Whereupon, there was a loud bang from the back room of house and the TV reporter stopped the camera as asked, "What was that?"
"Oh I'm so embarrassed," the old man said. "it's my father. He's drunk again!" )

Hey, that's exactly what WE have been eating all these years, right?
116..HERE WE COME!
Speaking of Classics, Bob Ellis just brought to my attention one of the most expensive...and beautiful automobiles every made: a 100 year old Rolls Royce that just sold at auction for $5 MILLION DOLLARS!

Now that I think about it...I'll bet that car was indeed a CLASSIC!
The very first......Ghetto Blaster!
