A doctor’s prescription for a long life

At lunch Thursday with one of my favorite people, Dr. Elizabeth Welty, who was a doctor in Spokane when women doctors were quite rare here, told me the “secret” to an active life at 96.

“Keep moving. Plan tomorrow.”

And, I noted, she drank real coffee — black.
