The quiz that ran on here a few weeks ago said I would live to be 95 - that is close enough for me.

LOL, sounds like a kinda dubious distinction as can't help wondering how often she gets out to go dancing or do a little bar-hopping!

The oldest person I knew personally was either 104 or 105 when she died. She didn't get around as well, but she lived alone (her husband died when she was in her 60s or 70s) and took care of herself. Her mind was just as active as could be the last time we saw her (when she was 100). When I say she didn't get around as well, don't get me wrong--she still got around! At 100 she still walked a couple blocks to the beauty parlor to have her hair done.

Assuming that you were in relatively good health, and still enjoying life, I would love to get to be this old, or older. I want to live for as long as possible, and I wish the same for all of you too
