No Problem: This is Jacques Houot’s motto. He never uses his age as an excuse. But how did he get so old in the first place?
Here are 4 pieces of advice from the active retiree:
ADIEU CANCER STICKS
Jacques smoked a pack of cigarettes a day—until he had a heart attack. Heeding the advice of his then boss, Jacques quit smoking in time to reclaim his quality of life.
IT’S IN HIS KISS
This song was made famous in 1964, but for Jacques, the text has lost none of its relevance. Whether it’s love or not, man or woman, no one is safe from his bisous.
KEEP ON SMILING
The real secret behind Jacques’ joie de vivre is his interminable cheerfulness. According to his theory, you can prolong your life by one full hour with every laugh. We say: Why not try it!
THE MOUNTAINS ARE CALLING
After working as a sailing instructor in Florida, Jacques returned to Colorado. In the mountains surrounding Carbondale, he found the perfect terrain to get back in shape.
