"I may give out, but I never give up." I'm not posting this because he smokes cigars, but he does. Machine made, too. Tampa Sweets are his go to. He's just a cool old man. He's 112 now. Those members who don't click on video links, well, that's just your bad luck! :lol: Of course he's a Texan, born and raised. :awesome:

Thanks for sharing this Keith, it warmed my heart and reminded me of all that is good in life...a simple life, its simple pleasures, and simply trusting God through it all...simply grand!
