    The older lady said on TV:


    "After your 80th birthday, any birthday that you are not under a headstone is a milestone."

    What do you think?

    Eh unfortunately true... I've been spending my free time writing a life story on this app my son gave me for my family when I'm gone. Fun, but sometimes morbid...

    My 91 year old neighbor -- who's still spry as all get-out -- always says that any day you wake up on the right side of the dirt is a good day.

    Any day I get up, look at the obits and my name isn't there......it's going to be a great day.
    If we're ever in a situation where I am "the voice of reason", then we are in a very, very bad situation.

    My dad, who's 91, says when he reads the obituaries that he can't understand all these people who are reported to have gone peacefully. He says that he will be kicking and screaming--no, no, I won't go!

    To me it would be a blessing to go bed and wake up dead. Of course, not for anyone who finds me.

    I'm more concerned about the quality of the years I have left than the number of years I have left.

    A wondeerful idea. What's the app? I'm getting to the age I might want to leave a piece of my mind.

    I'll never be under a headstone. After I go, breath deeply for I'll be in the air!
