PADUCAH, Ky. - It's a fact of life we all get older, but some folks in Western Kentucky are not letting that get them down. A group of more than a hundred laced up their tennis and took on the Senior Games of 2007.
Lou Anna Jones won't admit it but the golf putt takes skill. "I don't know, I just wanted to put the ball in the hole." After two holes in one, Jones lets me in on a secret, she is 90! "I don't believe there will be anyone in my category, do you?"
There are more than 25 events senior can compete in like chair volleyball and the ever popular football toss. "It's just great to have fun with people your own age" said Tankersley.
The senior games run through Saturday across Western Kentucky and when it's said and done seniors get medals for their efforts; Tankersley favorite part. "I didn't do to well last year but before I got several medals, you take them, hang them up and look at them in the closest ever now and then."
Organizers hope the senior games prove you're never too old to have fun. Lou Anna Jones is willing to admit this she shouldn't have said that better herself. "Everyday is wonderful when you are 90."
