Bob the Builder Award: Happy Birthday Miles Nelson, age 101

Today is Miles 101st birthday.
"His secrets to his longevity?  Walking 3/4 a mile a day.  No smoking. 
Little drinking.  And volunteering for charity."

Meals on Wheels in fact.  Delivering meals to shut-in "youngsters."  He has a route of 12 folks one day a week, and since he isn't driving as much as he used to, his 74 year old son Ed drives him around.

Where did he learn to serve?  When he was a kid, his farmer father would butcher their hogs and then take him to deliver the meat and care packages to the poor.  That was around 1920.  :)
