    Im not going to be around too long it seems

    I was logging into hotmail today, and was looking around at their retirement advice as far as finances go, and came across their life expectancy survey, so I took it.
    According to them, I have less than 2 years to live, so Im thinking it doesnt pay to plan out too many more woodworking projects since winters are no good and I have a huge project planned to take me through next year and then some.

    Come on, Allen...

    Don't believe everything you read. What do 'they" know?

    Plan away. You'd hate to run out of things to do!

    we just did my wife, she came up with 95 years old......and I was always hoping she would make 100, and me 102, so Id have 2 good years!

    when her 95 years popped up just now, I threw her out of the room.

    Well, there went another year or so. You can mess your back up pretty badly throwing things around like that.

    According to the calculator, I'll live to be 93 years old. And I can improve on that if I turn into a girl.
    Now, if someone would just tell me how I am going to afford to live that long.....

    Live large, Allen, live large.

    When I know my time is almost up I plan on spending every dime I have in hope that the check to the funeral home bounces. What are they gonna do to me that is worse than dead....
    I may be getting a little older physically but mentally I'm still tarp as a shack.

    They say married men live longer, but that isn't true. It only feels that way.

    According to the test I'm going to tip at 77. I don't really care since alzheimers runs in the family. And cancer. And heart disease. And glaucoma. And a few other things. Live hard, die fast. Never pass up a good meal since it may be your last.

    Well Allen, so you have to quit smoking, lose weight, exercise, lower your BP and cholesterol, right? Easy.

    All the best,
    Ken
