vivo e vegeto

Today’s Parola del Giorno is the expression, vivo e vegeto, which means alive and kicking.  It is often used to describe an older person who has a lot of life still left in him/her.  See the expression used below in its context:

Mio padre ha 88 anni ma è ancora vivo e vegeto:  non si ferma mai e ogni giorno ha qualcosa di nuovo da fare!

My dad is 88 years old, but he is still alive and kicking: he never stops and every day has something new to do!
