What Would You Like to Ask Janet?
Our friend Janet turns 104 on October 15, 2010. She clearly recalls the sinking of the Titanic when she was six. She remembers the smell of the picture house and the sound of the piano player next to the stage when she saw her first silent movie.
She compares herself to an aging baseball player who can’t run the bases so well any more. Although she admires Franklin Delano Roosevelt, she is suspect of his intentions regarding the bombing of Pearl Harbor.
Janet says the best family time is long conversations over meals. The secret to longevity is swimming every day, which she still does, and a glass of red wine during lunch. Every lunch.
“You don’t sip wine. You drink it. Just like the Europeans.”
Janet is a treasure.
Our sons and I are making a film to explore Janet’s ideals on how to live a happy, healthy and sustainable life. To grow old gracefully. What would you like to ask Janet? Please send us your questions in the comment field below, or through the contact form in the upper nav. bar of my blog.
Or follow the conversation on Facebook.
You can ask Janet anything. Although her hearing is fading, and you need to get pretty close for her to recognize you, she is as sharp as if it were 1935.
We will film Janet’s replies and make sure you receive a copy of her answer to your question.
