He turns 94 on July 17 and says ever since he turned 80, his age has become part of his name as in, well, 94-year-old Art Linkletter.
The man who coined the phrase Kids Say The Darnedest Things now says being old doesnt have to damn you to a life of being sick, frail, sexless or senile.
He says the key to being vital when youre up in years is always having something to plan for.
Linkletter practices what he preaches. Hes just co- authored a new book, How To Make The Rest Of Your Life The Best Of Your Life (Nelson).
Still, hes made some concessions to his age. Last winter, he gave up skiing not because his body couldnt hack it, but because his wife was afraid hed get into an accident with snowboarders.
