Oh, To Be Young

Alan Young, who owned and loved Mr. Ed,

was born in 1919.

He is 95 years old.

He is doing voices for animation in Mickey Mouse cartoons.

Yes, he is working in 2015
I think this photo is probably fifteen years old

Fuck me

He's my hero

Mine too!

Also: Probably apocryphal or however you spell it & too good to check, but in the PBS(?) dvd series thing of John Adams, there's a great scene in which Ben Franklin walks in on a couple getting it on in Paris. The couple is horrified but Ben puts everyone at ease by saying wistfully & with complete sincerity, "Oh to be 70 again."

Also: the dude who wrote the flat-out stunning A River Runs Through It? It was his first novel & he was in his 70s.

I hope Alan Young is still working at 100!
