Good news: found out I'm going to be a grandpa again.
Other news: realizing the odds tell me I won't see that grandbaby turn 16.

*sigh*

Life expectancy at age 61* is nearly 21 more years. Just sayin’


*Can’t recall your age.

That’s if you’re born today. You’ve made it through all the things that could have killed you up to now so you get a few bonus years.

Ah. So I'll be dead by the time my grandbaby is 21.

I feel better now. Thanks Luke!

Congrats on the additional 5 years of life, Joe. Oh, and congrats on the grandbaby as well!

I went to a buffet restaurant and the cashier rang me up with a senior discount. I’m 53, but my hair is gray. I guess I’m two years away from being eligible for the 55 and older discounts.
