For that population, life can be filled with financial and health challenges - or not. Many 80- and 90-year-olds are quite healthy and active. As WUWM’s Erin Toner heard from some octogenarians, life is what you make of it. Wed, 19 Nov 2008 17:00:37 +0000 Erin Toner 2487 at http://wuwm.com At 80 or 90, Life is What You Make of It
