Something older than my parents! Lol! I mean, 67, you just get social security. I think elderly to me is in their 80's.

Haha... It's hard to define it, but I guess I went by the back-end of Social Security. But, point taken!

She may not be "elderly " but at any rate she is as dumb as a brick to be driving drunk at that age, and smash into a parked car! Are we not supposed to respect and learn from our ELDERS???
