The man who keeps walking

The last month he turned 90 years. I couldn’t go to his birthday party, and I haven’t seen him either in a long time. But I know he is ok right now (he always is).Actually, he bought a new car as an own present, and is thinking about traveling around the country (he is a nice driver also).

Everything and he have a nicehealth.
Another admirable point is how he cares about relationships. He always says : “Is nice to be important. But even more important is being nice”. And he practices his thoughts. In his last party...
