Many forum members are counting on their assets lasting until age 90, 100, and I even saw a 105 Riffing from the cartoon (where "70's" = a tombstone) what would those "stages" be?

Thank you for posting this cartoon. It made me laugh out loud.

I printed it out and shared it with two coworkers, and I have taped it to the wall next to my computer as a gentle reminder.

Thanks for sharing. Could someone post the cartoon with the man walking near the cemetery thinking "Time = Money"? I've seen it on this site before, but could not find it under the search function. I love that one as well. Thanks.
