Here is a part of a message that John Drummond sent me about his oldest
customer.

Hello Lowell!

Thanks for your inspiring story. Our oldest customer bought his first unicycle
at age 84! We wish we had gotten his name, though; he bought it at last year’s
national convention and paid cash. Hopefully he’s riding around his
neighborhood.

Just a point of interest.
