I would post the pictures but the count for pills is 10 bottles. The man that was my best man and is my brothers, brother-in-law takes that for triple bypass and shingles. He is retired and was an avid golfer missed a whole season. I knew he was not feeling well but did not know how serious it was. I only see him when they have holiday celebrations. It is sad when you have worked hard your life and when retirement time arrives you can not enjoy it but there are no guarantees. But it makes me think since I am alone.

I still got my care taker, but she's not in the best of health.
I often think how it would be without her around to take
care of all the domestic chores....and me.
I've got a couple of nice trees picked out across the creek
in the "wilderness". When my time comes, think I'll just head
out that way and prop myself up again one, they'll find me
one day when someone notices me missing. No fuss, no muss,
light the fire and I'll be part of our forgotten history.

I think that way also Denny but as sedgewick posted it is dangerous in this day and age.

I think my next sentence (or more) is pertinent to this thread?

I am back in NY for a friend's funeral yesterday.

Last night another NY friend died. We will visit her husband today: he can barely get around due to a stroke.

Later today, we will visit another friend In NY who is living in a first-floor garage-turned-bedroom due to a recent stroke.

We head back to NC tomorrow, but we will be back to NY for a funeral in a week or two.

My Dad died at 90 and my Mom is still breathing/thinking (but, not walking) at 91. Maybe I have good luck in having those genes?

33 years to 100 for me, Denny.

I just got home a few minutes ago from visiting my dad. He could go any day. Lots of pain, can't see well, deaf as a post and can't stand up anymore. He's 97. I don't want to live that long.

Here is how I see it. With age, comes wisdom. I don't care who it is, they have information which younger generations do not have access to. It isn't written in books and it isn't on TV nor on the internet.
I thoroughly enjoy sitting with folks a generation or three ahead of me to learn by listening.
So my message is twofold. If you are young, take some time out of your busy life and spend it with someone who has been around the block a time or two. The have Information!
If you are not so young anymore and it seems like the wheels are falling off, don't shut yourself off to the world. Avail yourself to younger generations. You have information they can use which they cannot get anywhere else.

A veteran - whether active duty, retired, national guard, or reserve - is someone who, at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check made payable to The 'United States of America', for an amount of "up to and including my life."

Only problem Carl, is I'm having a real hard time finding folks a
generation ahead of me.
And.....at my age the wisdom is slipping away, a little every day.
And......I can't find any young people that are willing to take time
out of their schedule to listen, mostly cuz they know it all, or think
they do.

You got it right Denny. Until I retired a year ago I usually worked with much younger people and they had no interest in tomorrow or even what happened in the past but only today and their pleasures. No effort to save or realize there would come a time when they would wish they had.

Ron (WE b OLD) glad you mentioned about what you say. I met a woman at a recent grief meeting and she said that she wanted to really tell the world how she is doing but was afraid to.
Old age is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer you get to the end the faster it goes!
