Getting Smart (and Staying Young) with Barbara Feldon

Look at the picture below.  That was taken about six months ago.  At the time, Barbara Feldon was either 79 or 80.  Yes, you read that right, but I can't believe it.
I am a huge fan of tv's Get Smart, even though I first came upon it in rerun form.  Feldon was adorable in that show.  I think she was vastly underrated among other more publicized actresses of that era.
When I saw she was going to be at the Hollywood Celebrities Show, I had to meet her.  She was very sweet to everyone at the show and she looked great.  It was a very nice experience.
On the way home, I kept thinking of how great Feldon looked.  If she had some "helpful" surgeries, it all seemed natural.  At least she did not overdo anything.
When I got home, I went online and looked for Feldon.  I came across two different birth dates, which put her at 79 or 80.  79 or 80!
That does not look like a woman that old.  Some might say I look older than Feldon (although I would have to block you from this site if you did).
Sometimes I meet old favorites and they look..well, they look old and different.  It is not good or bad.  It is just a fact.  Feldon, on the other hand, really looked like a slightly older version of Agent 99.  Meeting Feldon was like stepping back in time.

I have seen many recent pictures of Barbara. She looks amazingly beautiful as always - as pretty and youthful as she did on Get Smart! She is, in my opinion, the most beautiful woman I have ever seen. She seems like a lovely sweet soul too.
