Thanks, Jarkko,

I was wondering how Roshi was doing. It's great to see him still getting out and about at 104 years of age, and nice to see that he's maintained his friendship with Leonard.

All good things, John E

Thanks for this captivating photo Jarkko,

As John said it's wonderful to see Roshi and Leonard together and that Roshi is OK at 104 years.

I've always liked this quote of Leonard's about Roshi, "I met this old man and I liked what he wasn't saying."

Thanks,yes. Well Roshi must be doing something right to still be able o get around at 104. He looks fine. Let's hope he has given Leonard the secrete of long life too.

When I first viewed the picture as it appears on this thread (at least on my computer screen) I thought it was poignant, but thought LC looked a bit different. The second time I logged on I clicked on the actual website link and saw the whole picture.

In case all are not aware, the gentleman pushing Roshi's wheelchair is not Leonard. If you click on the full picture via the link, you will see Leonard standing off to the right looking at the camera. He seems to have been cropped from the photo on this thread (again, at least as I view it).

How odd that you are seeing a different photo. I see Leonard very clearly, he is the incredibly cool looking dude in the shades!
