I've recently turned 65 and have long held to the belief that 85 years old is a good age to check out. That gives me 20 years--1300 weeks. I say that knowing that both my mother-in-law and my mother lived to 95 and 96 respectively. But one was bent over like Quasimodo, and the other suffered through dementia. It seems, to me, that once you reach the grand old age of 85, things start to go South. Of course, anything after that would be bonus--as long as you have your health--and anything before that would be tragic. But it's wise to accept that you will, one day, expire.
