I love life now at 63 and if I could stay as healthy and active as I am now I would want to live forever.  However, if I can't enjoy life  and be daily grateful for all that I have then it will be time to leave.

I met my current Significant Other when I was 75, a year and a half after my husband of 26 years had passed away.  I'm 77 now and S O and I are still going strong!  There is life even when you are three quarters of a century old!  One of the secrets is to keep your body moving.  I am still Rock n Roll dancing at S O's band gigs.

I am not wedded to a number. If I begin to fail physically or mentally, I hope I drop off my perch.

It's not about a particular number, much more about where I'm at health-wise as I get older. If you've got nothing going on from the neck up, what's the point?

Your attitude and your mother's is like mine. I adore my family, and have such a desire for living. I am never bored and find something I love doing. My husband has been gone for 13 years but, where I miss him, I am able to enjoy time with family and good friends.

I'm 82 and want at least 10 more years, possibly 20 if I'm not senile or disabled.
