Age is No Barrier (Continued): 10. Dolly

Dolly is 80.  For the last 20 years she has run an immensely popular produce stand and eatery.
It is the kind of neighborhood restaurant that serves meals (and pies!)
like your grandmother used to cook.  


And, in the evenings, Dolly is a champion ballroom dancer.  Four years ago -- at the age of 76 --
she won the Fred Astaire World Championship as the top
female dancer in the Silver Skill division.
