    Man, 84, finally gets to attend high school prom

    I thought this was worthy of a smile.

    He arrived in style: a black limo, a sharp tuxedo, a beautiful date and with an adoring crowd waiting for him. Kenneth Smith, 84, attended the Chester High School prom on Thursday night — fashionably late. Decades late.

    I found an unstinky article with a small photograph of he and his date: http://cbs3.com/local/kenneth.smith.prom.2.740895.html

    click the pic and it gets bigger.

    better still, watch him on video being interviewed.

    I think this is awesome.

    My son participates in a prom put on by a church in Lexington KY for the elderly and handicapped - those folks have a blast, and so do the volunteers.
