    I'll be 75 in November of this year and I do both. I drive 30 miles to go to the grocery store and buy material when I need it. I do everything that need to be done, except do the weed eating, my Son does that.

    I'm 76 and don't know which I enjoy most, quilting or my laptop. BTW, today is my DH & my 58th wedding anniversary.

    I agree 73 is close enough.

    You know, I've never believed the "can't teach an old dog new tricks" saying. I'm only 34 but all of my grandparents and great-grandparents kept learning and doing until the day they died, and the ones that are still living are still learning and doing! One of my great-grandfathers even got his pilot's license and built a plane...in his 70s! I remember flying with him, it was great!

    I think that many older folks (not all of them of course, and I even know younger people who are this way!) are so used to doing things a certain way that they get into the "this is the way I've always done it so I'm not going to learn a new way" mindset. I think also that too many young people just expect that older folks aren't capable or interested in learning new technologies, which is ridiculous!

    You rock ladies! :thumbup:

    Sorry, I'm only 56. My dad is 79 1/2 and he is on the computer all day. He worked in the computer field all his life starting with the old punch card programs and installing large mainframes so the technology is not new to him. He doesn't quilt though.

    Am 82 and have been quilting since 1990 (sewed for many years). Have been using computer for 7 years and was ready to throw it out the window but since I found this Board I wouldn't be without a computer--love it. Have been directed to many interesting quilting web sites.
