Pretty impressive. Super-centarians like him are very rare, and very neat to learn about. All the different things they have experienced and seen change over time is great to discuss with them.

next year he can say "Alas, eleventy-one years is far too short a time to live among such excellent and admirable hobbits."

I recently watch his short documentary NatGeo made. He was awesome! Still driving, drinking and smoking. People back then were made from a different material.

All of these veterans sacrifices and those who fought against what people now in this nation are pushing toward what they sought to eradicate is being mocked, erased, and rewritten by those who wish to lord, rule, and subjugate, erasing our freedoms, to dominate over those who wont fight. It's a shame that all that was won is being taken from the people.
