She has a point.

You can live on bland food so as to avoid an ulcer, drink no tea, coffee or other stimulants in the name of health, go to bed early, stay away from night life, avoid all controversial subjects so as never to give offense, mind your own business, avoid involvement in other people’s problems, spend money only on necessities and save all you can.

You can still break your neck in the bath tub, and it will serve you right.

(Eileen Gruder, quoted in If You Want to Walk on Water, You’ve Got to Get Out of the Boat, John Ortberg, p. 20)

    From an Andy Capp cartoon:

    Old feller “Ah doan’ drink an’ ah doan’ smoke an’ ahm celebraytin’ mah 80th birthday next week.”

    My favorite quote is the old codger that says,
    “If I knew I was going to live this long I’d have taken better care of myself”.

    Great to have both your and you wife blogging, you remind me of that same time in our life, except I think you have your head on better than I did at the time.
