    Actually Memory Alpha shows that John (Kyle) Winston is 91 and that Jack (Tal) Donner just turned 90, 3 weeks ago.
    That makes 16 members of the club.

    I'm surprised that Winston is that old!

    The deaths of Robert Phillips and Morgan Woodward have brought the club down to 14 -- but if the great Michael Forest can hang on for 6 weeks he will join the club!!

    So a couple of updates....

    Sadly we lost Donner and Hurst, but the list of the venerable elders was increased with the addition of Patrick Horgan. There won't be any new members until well into 2020 so I hope the others hang on and we can get up to 15 members again.

    List is sadly down to 13 with the loss of Steve Marlo at age 92. And once again no one will be joining until well into 2020 so I fear we may lose more before then. But it looks like the folks on this list took good care of themselves and hopefully had great lives after retirement.

    The members lost from this list since the first post on Sept. 1, 2017 are --
    Steve Marlo
    David Hurst
    Jack Donner
    Robert Phillips
    Morgan Woodward
    Ned Romero
    Harry Landers.

    I just remembered that this thread's title is the same as one of the rare Mickey Mouse cartoons where he was drawn with dimensional ears and not flat circles that rolled around his head.

    An impressive list to say the least. I thought William Sargent had died years back though...?

    It's weird to think of William Shatner as 90. In comparison, watching Kirk complaining about getting "old" in the Star Trek movies looks silly now.

    I thought it was off, if not silly, in 1982. Shatner was against it, he felt like Kirk was still in his prime, but Meyer insisted on the Kirk midlife crisis.

    16 on the list. I advise all these Old-Timers to watch their step. Literally. Because the number of elderly folks who die in Falls is tremendous.
