My father 92 eats at McDonald's every morning. He meets up with other men in the town to chit chat before going to the senior citizens center to play pool and eat lunch. Is this a good thing to eat breakfast at McDonald's every morning?

Dale, it sounds like your father is doing great. While I'm sure no medical expert would recommend eating breakfast at McDonald's that frequently, your father is 92 and active, with a busy social life. What more can one hope for?

In short, I wouldn't worry about his McDonald's habit at this point. Best of luck to you and your dad.
