Joe, at my age I shouldn't expect to last much more than 20 years myself.
That's as close as I can come to absolute truth at the moment. In twenty
years, I'll be around ten years older than my parents were when they died
of more or less natural causes.

Of course I act as if I expect to be around for much longer than that.

Nonetheless, I have decided not to formulate any long-range plans that
require me to survive past May 6th, 2031 on the grounds that after my
100th birthday I won't NEED any long-range plans.
