One Minnesota State Fair fan has been enjoying the Great Get-Together for a century. That’s right — Loretta Ecklund still walks the fairgrounds at 100 years young. “I can still get up and dance,” she said, and then did.
Her name is Betty Phiffer. She’s 93 and lives in White Bear Lake. What makes her amazing is she first came to the fair when she was 13 – she remembers the fair back in the 1930s. Eight decades ago, she remembers being a teenager on her favorite ride.
If age is nothing but a number, it’s a number a lot of us work hard to avoid. Men and women apparently have very different ages when they begin to feel old. What are those ages, and why?
At what age would you consider yourself to be old? Is it 40? 50? 60?
