In Wednesday’s Ransom Note: proof today how age really is a state of mind

MEMPHIS, Tenn. ( – In Wednesday’s Ransom Note, proof today how age really is a state of mind.

Today was Senior American Day at the Delta Fair. As many as 4,000 seniors showed for entertainment and to see the crafts and culinary exhibits, not to mention the raw talent of seniors who took part in the talent contest.

I had the honor of being emcee for the event where two dozen acts performed. There was a harpist, a poet, solo singing and group singing, and everyone got up and danced with the many line dancing groups who took the stage.

It’s not always easy to get up and perform in front of hundreds of people, but these seniors showed some real courage today and some real talent. Almost every performance made a statement that we too often forget about our seniors. A statement that “we may be older, but we still got it.”

And some of you ladies who came up to me to get selfies after, you definitely still got it!
