102 & 88 Year Old Men Just Released Their First Album

If these  guys still have energy to follow their dreams, we all should! No excuses!  Alan Tripp is 102 years old, and he's done a lot of things in his life. He lived through the Great Depression, worked in advertising , spent some time in broadcasting, and wrote a few books. But ever since he was a kid, his dream was to be a songwriter, & now at 102 years old, he just released his first album with the help of his writing partner, 88-year-old jazz pianist named Marvin Weisbord. And they might be the oldest songwriting duo to ever put an album out. They met at a retirement community near Philadelphia, where they both live. And they produced eight songs for an album called the "Senior Song Book." It's inspired by Big Band music from the '40s. But they wanted the lyrics to resonate with people today, and not just old people. They wrote all the songs together, and hired ten singers and musicians to record them. You can check out samples and buy a copy of the album at SeniorSongBook.com.  I support this movement & my entire family will be getting a copy for Christmas because this is the cutest thing ever.
