Re: How long do you want live? 80, 90, 100?

It is my intention to live to 100, since I am now 93, and will be 94 June 26 of this year. I am in good shape physically, continue to exercise daily, walk without a cane or other assistance. Very slight arthritis in each thumb and some in toes. My mind is clear, occasionally forgetting a celebrities name, a common thing in my residence in a leisure care facility. I still drive a car and have eyesight to have a drivers license with no restrictions. I write on my "travels blog" on my computer nearly each day and read non-fiction mostly on "quantum" science, aging, psychology and others. Good, nutricious food, staying relatively stress free through meditation, naps, and other activities keep me healthy and happy. Experiencing the death of two wives, the last six years ago, but meeting a new significan other at our mutual residence is really great for older people. Perhaps living to 100 is a restricted goal! I hope so.

As long as possible. I'll shoot for 100 years of age or older.

80. So I am entering what may be my final decade. I intend to speed up the bucket list because if I don't get it done this decade, chances are that mountain view will remain a "wish I had done that".

Attitude matters... A positive attitude can lengthen your life.

90 seems like a good comporomise between the wonder of discovery and the boredom with life's  adventures. I only hope that GOD provides me with all my conscious faculties when I go, because it's tragic when you can't use your senses or if you lose your functional mobility before you die.

I want to live until my ear lobes are as big as Kirk Douglas's.

 

You are getting sleepy.
