Grampa Tierra del Fuego

A conversation I just had with a 41 year old coworker:

Me: Where did you meet your wife?
Him: In Tierra del Fuego
Me: Aww!  That’s one of the places my Grampa rode his motorcycle to.
Him (with much enthusiasm): REALLY?!? I would have LOVED to do something like that!
Me: He was 65 when he did it, you still have 24 years!
Him (with a pause, and arm motions this time): YES! Yes. Is he still alive? Tell him he’s an inspiration.

OK, there you are, Grampa.
