Galyons' galleons

Upon reaching their 63rd birthday on October 28th of last year, Ronnie and Donnie Galyon of Beavercreek, Ohio, U.S., became the world's oldest conjoined twins. They have outlived Italian twins Giacomo and Giovanni Battista Tocci and the original "Siamese twins" Chang and Eng Bunker, both pairs of whom lived into their early 60s. The Galyon Brothers celebrated with a trip to Florida to visit Disney World and Busch Gardens. They live with their sister-in-law and their brother Jim, who says, "It's a lifelong dream, and they are absolutely loving it." They certainly would not have been as comfortable at home or on the road if it weren't for their customized bed and wheelchair (SLIDESHOW HERE).
