Youth is not a time of life-it is a state of mind.  It is not a matter of red cheeks, red lips and supple knees.  It is a temper of the will; a quality of the imagination; a vigor of the emotions; it is a freshness of the deep springs of life.  Youth means a temperamental predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over a life of ease. Nobody grows old by merely living a number of years; people grow old by deserting their ideals.

Photo taken in Korea 1953. The kitten, Miss Hap was only 2 wks old. The  kitten was rescued by Marine Sergeant Frank Praytor.     In 2010, Praytor wrote, "Miss Hap was weaned on meat out of C rations and grew into a big girl who thought I was her father. When I left Korea, I left her in the care of another Marine. When I returned in '55, she was alive and well.    At 83, I'm still saving orphans. Have two cats, Molly and Max. They never leave the house."
