Pete, I clicked on your story because you asked for one more click to get you to 64. But you’re way past that. However, I’m so glad I read it. Happy birthday, by the way. My 64th was a blast and I had even better ones to come. Sometimes I think I did my best living after 65. I’m facing 80 with some serious thinking to do about it. Many lines moved me in your piece, but especially your decision to live to 100. No one in my family has done it though an uncle got to 96 or 97. You’re statement that you have make healthy decisions to get there gave me a kick where I need it. Thank you for this. Truly, truly thank you. Let’s hope we both get to celebrate a healthy 100. Best wishes.
