Fit Folks: Bee Crenshaw keeps active at 91

Pam LeBlanc
Bee Crenshaw, 91, stays fit by enjoying the outdoors.

Bee Crenshaw, 91

I live on my 12-acre farm and tend to horses, goats, chickens, three dogs and five cats. At 6 a.m. every morning, I exercise to a Richard Simmons tape, and at 7 a.m. I do my own, mainly abdominal, exercises. Then I start my day of feeding the animals. I do all my own grass mowing and grow many flowers in large flower beds - not to mention all the watering to keep them alive. This past summer I swam laps in our Elgin swimming pool, too.
