My Grandfather made it to 90 but decided one day that the leak in the roof would be best dealt with on a 100' day in August and had a heart attack up on his roof.
My great grandmother had to turn over the running of her orchards to her 84 year old son when she was 101. Seems she got too shaken up driving the Honda 3 wheeler around.
She died four years later. She told my grandmother the year before she died that she knew she was going to die soon because she was bored too much.
P.S. "The Prince" is my favorite book on War.
It is also my favorite essay. I wish I could read it in the original.
Who said that ev'ry wish would be heard and answered
When wished on the morning star
Somebody thought of that, and someone believed it
Look what it's done so far
