98!  But I die right before Christmas.   :(

Been there done that.

Had a death in our family 12 days before Christmas this past year.

Not a good time for it.

Dying at 73....I can live with that

Tell me that when you're my age (70)!

Good point.  I’m 20 years your junior. My dad died at 62.  My mom’s dad died in his 60’s.  My dad’s dad died in early 70’s.

The genes are not favorable, but I hope they are for you and others.

My Dad's Dad died when he was 46. Genes are only a part of the equation and medical science has come a long way. Good luck!

Here's something so crazy (almost eerie) that it would seem impossible, but it's true:

My mom died in 1997 and my dad died the following year. Each was the exact same age at death: 79 years, 7 months, 8 days.

Any one heard from Guru?  I think he croaked Monday when MU slipped out of the Top 10.

Me? Next Tuesday. Damn opioids.

That's nuts! .. because ..  My mom and dad both had that happen too, living exactly 67 years, 4 months, XX days.

These same age posts remind me of those times ( I have had a few in my extended family)
......where a longtime married couple dies within days/weeks of the others death.

Its kind of romantic to see how they seem tied so closely together ....all through life...and we presume ...even after their nearly concurrent deaths

Crap!  I am only 13 months older than Glow and I plan to live way longer than him, living it up on his sweet, sweet, life insurance money.
Have some patience, FFS.

Even though the death clock says he should outlive you, amiright?


On that note, I wonder how many people actually get away with spousicide to collect the insurance money.  Not that she needed any disincentive from poisoning me slowly over time with antifreeze, but personally, I feel pretty safe since my wife paid for my life insurance policy long before she met me (when she received her juris doctorate).  That, and I cook all my own meals.
Wow, I'm very concerned for Benny.  Being able to mimic Myron Medcalf's writing so closely implies an oncoming case of dementia.

For giggles I changed the "normal" setting to one of the others.  On pessimistic it says I am dying in 6 months.  On Optimistic it says I am living into my late 90's.

I got pretty much the same so I decided to be optimistic from now on, even though I know I'll probably muck it up.

Sometimes hours.

My wife’s uncle in West Bend died, his wife went 18 hours later.  It was surreal getting two calls in two days.  You almost had to do a “what...wait...what...she died too?”

I had no idea so many of you guys and gals were so old.  It makes me think my 75+ is not that far outside the norm.
My freshman roommate,  senior roommate, best friend, MU sweetheart, but never my wife, all passed years ago.  That's probably why I stop by here from time to time for a drink and a few memories, sort of like the PIANO MAN.

My suggestion is 1) more Arby's (unless Chick gets a job at said Arby's, in which case, eat more of the Arby's that Chick doesn't work at) and 2) start filtering everything Chick gives you to drink through activated carbon.

Solid advice. I'd add 3) Keep syrup of ipecac handy and 4) for extreme emergencies, build a Chick-proof emergency room in the basement, with medical staff on the ready.
