    The age of a woman doesn't mean a thing. The best tunes are played on the oldest fiddles.” --Ralph Waldo Emerson

    This is my 86 year old Grandmother. From an impromptu portrait session at a BBQ held by my Brother and his Wife on Saturday. She looks pretty damn good for 86. Italian women never age.

      Are you sure this is your grandmother??????? I can't get over this! She looks younger than me!

      Technically, 86 and a half years old. LOL

      Her boyfriend is several years younger than she is which may account for some of the reason she is still so active.

      86? I'm amazed! What a beautiful woman (and portrait).

      (I've got the younger man; I'm off to figure out how to become in any way Italian...)
