Select a good spouse.

When Esmond was asked how he managed to live a long and happy life, he replied, “I didn’t behave myself for a few years there, but then I got a really good wife.”

Esmond worked as a farmer before retiring in 1975. He currently lives in an assisted living residence. On Friday, employees threw Esmond a birthday party.
