WILL I LIVE TO BE 80?


Some times you just have to ask yourself 'Will I live to be 80?'


I recently chose a new primary care physician.
After two visits and exhaustive lab tests, he said I was doing 'fairly well' for my age.
A little concerned about that comment, I couldn't resist asking him,
'Do you think I'll live to be 80?'
He asked, 'Do you smoke tobacco or drink alcoholic beverages?'
'No,' I replied. 'I don't do drugs, either. '
Then he asked, 'Do you eat rib-eye steaks and barbecued ribs?'
I said, 'No, my other doctor said that all red meat is unhealthy'
'Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf, boating, fishing, hunting or relaxing on the beach?'
'No, I don't,' I said.
He asked, 'Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or have a lot of sex?'
'No,' I said. 'I don't do any of those things.'
Then he looked at me and asked, 'Then why do you give a s**t?

Yeah but then you hear about those 90 yr olds that smoked cigars & drank all their lives & for a time worked in a brothel. those were the days, nothing that sobering up or penicilin couldnt fix. lol.

Im 2nd generation American. My mothers parents came from Norway. My tante (aunt) Torhill is 84 & until last year, she'd walk to the store to get fresh groceries a few times a week & for the holidays would scrub the hardwood floors by hand to get ready for company. Then she had a stroke & she's in assisted living. I can only hope (since Im a mutt) to live to be so spry at such an age. I know one thing. If I cant be that perverted old man running around & changing my own diapers then I dont want to be old. Besides getting paralysized, being and old man that cant feed himself or anything else for that matter has always been my biggest fear.

Being my age I have been asked a few times "How much longer do you plan to hunt" My answer is that am inventing camo depends does that answer your question.
