Here's a great quote by George Burns:

If you live to be one hundred, you've got it made. Very few people die past that age

For 66 I'm holding up fairly well but sure could drop 50 pounds. Arthritis in my right shoulder makes it hard to shoot handguns very long one handed but ok with two. Eyesight still is good so I'm still a threat to a target. I'm at the point where I hope to hang on to my present abilities for as long as possible. Dropping that weight would help.

well i am fixing to hit 51 and they say it's a case of mind over matter. at my age now, i don't mind that it doesn't matter!

some of my youthful abilities have faded and i am not as quick as was when i was younger, my health has slipped to some degree that it hurts to crawl out of bed every morning, but i not ready to give in just yet.

i am the oldest guy at work and exceed the next oldest person by at least 14 years. i tll the younger ones that i still have old age treachery in my corner, and it will overcome youth and skill every time!

You are too old to die young.
