On the plus side, my parents were/are the first in my family to live past their mid-60s. Still doing pretty good in their late 70s. Maybe the sliding scale of healthier living will favor my generation of family even more.
At 70, I really don't feel old physically. My mother was hale and hearty into her 90th year. I don't anticipate that major physical deterioration will set in for a while. I don't anticipate mental deterioration at all. It's just that I can SEE the end from here.
