8-4. Nonagenarian Notions: Blogs published by nonagenarians

Print Friendly

A Google search for writers who were nonagenarians (I thought there might be other nonagenarians like me with blogs for books they’d written) came up with following odd results.

A story about a 90-year old guard at the Santa Anita Racetrack who saved a little girl from a runaway horse. Why was she there in the first place? asked the article.

And a 12-year old boy in England who was Home Alone when he saw a burglar trying to break a window and enter the house. Like the hero of the movie, he dealt with it! Hid himself in a room where spare furniture was stacked, used his cell phone to call his mum, and kept silent untl the police arrived.

And an item about Social Security being established in 1935, which included these bits of information. Today, at 65 you can expect to live to 81. One of four 65-year olds will live to 90 and one in ten will live to 95+.

There is something inadequate in my Google searching techniques!

One citation came up that gave me hope–title, “Moto Guzzo celebrates 90th Anniversary by Launching Blog.” Sounded like an Italian man’s name. Turned out Moto Guzzo is not a 90-year old Italian, it’s Europe’s oldest motorcycle manufacturer.
