    Hi Dianne!

    WMFE may have been airing an episode from a few seasons ago, before our national distribution…I think the story you’re looking for is here: http://growingbolder.com/against-all-odds-florida-farmer-271415.html

    Gene and his family have an incredible story — thanks for watching!

    Boomers rock, baby! I’m proud to be a member of the first generation NOT to age “gracefully’! Believe in yourself and go for it! When I retired in June, my first reaction was to decry the lack of a “Do Over” button, but, thanks to your inspiring program, I am pouncing on the one marked “Re-Start”! Cheers!
