Bess is Ninety Years Old and Swims Three Times a Week

Posted on December 16, 2007. Filed under: Fitness |

Friday I talked to a nice friend named Bess at the gym.

She’s going to her daughter’s in California for Christmas.

Bess turned ninety on June 28. She swims for an hour three times a week at our gym. We love her; she’s an inspiration to us.

Bess was a social worker before she retired..

She comes into the club in her ankle-length white monogrammed robe, her hair in an elegant white turban and matching white slippers. When I see Bess, she reminds me of refined 1940s-era Hollywood movie stars in my mother’s scrapbook photos.
