For better or for worse, none of us know how many good years we have left.
Absolutely! He certainly was never the model of health, but he got along pretty good. He ER'd in 1999 @ 55, and enjoyed his 8 years of retirement traveling and spending time with his family and grandkids. On Sept 8th he went to his class reunion.....Sept 15th went on a vacation to his BIL's in Wisconsin......Sept 20th started using portable O2 tank.....Sept 22nd died. He went fairly quickly and somewhat unexpectedly.
Since, like you say, you never know when your number is going to come up......I'm traveling as much as I can 'here & now'. Also enjoying time spent with family & friends.
Makin' hay while the sun shines!!!
