BETTER THAN EVER - Ann Arbor's "Mr. Bones," 83-year-old Percy Danforth, was in the Dollar Bill Copying, 611 Church St., this week having some music copied for his composer wife Frances. Members of the staff asked for a performance, so Danforth went out to his car, found some of the hand-held hardwood strips from which he wheedles amazing sounds, and returned to give them an impromptu holiday bones concert. "I'm in better shape than I've ever been," says Danforth, who suffered who heart attacks in late 1982. "I'm in my second childhood now."
