You Are Never Too Old To________

A few weeks ago my mom spotted this wonderful woman walking in La Jolla, California. Like the proud mother that she is, Frances told her all about me and asked if I could meet her on my next trip to California. This past weekend it was a great pleasure to finally meet Carol Olten and take her photograph. I loved her hip and playful look.  I am a firm believer that you are never too old to have fun and  to wear hologram glasses! What do you guys think? Finish the sentence below.
