    Fiddling at 90

    Violet Hensley is 90 years old, but she's making the fiddles by hand. Just as impressive is that she's still still gigging with her fiddle in the Ozarks.

    Here is the YouTube report-

    "Don't slow down 'til you have to.." is her motto! I hope all of us are doing music at 90.

    Thumbs up Re: Fiddling at 90

    What a great news clip. I think it's the music that keeps her young a lively, she may still be going strong twenty years from now... and when she gets to heaven, there'll be a big hoedown up there.

    I hope I'm still breathing at 90. Any fiddling would be bonus.

    She won’t slow down until she has to – I think she means as long as she is on this side of the ground! I hope I can do what I love until I’m 90 and beyond.

    I just read that actress and singer Angela Lansbury is doing her first Broadway stage performance in 25 years. She's 82 years old.
