"Will you still need me,

will you still feed me? When I'm 64?"


Have you thought about where you will be at 64?

I will come visit you in the old folks home Siu.

I'll even bring you a pet cat, and when I say cat I mean a old piece of stale wood with rusty nails sticking out of it.

That way the tetnis will get you before the old age does, because I'm just so dang good to you.

All the time. I figure I'll be underground by then, though.

I suspect I'll have already been dead for a few years. Unless I happened to inherit my paternal gm's genes (her father and both her parents' bro's and sisters lived well into their 90's, and she is 96 1/2)....

Siu, where will you be? <curious Vega look>

Well if the super-accurate online death predicting tests are any clue, I should be long gone by then.

I'd be a liar if I said I knew or especially cared. I'll be honest, I haven't planned that far ahead.

Lessee...

By then I'd probably have a Hybrid bike, with an airzound on the high rise bars, a basket on the front, an asp hanging like a frame pump. I'd cruise around not really paying attention to traffic and having an attitude with "careless" drivers and obnoxious teens that throw rocks at me.

Yeah I hear ya. But in the meanwhile you have to have the mindset to fend for yourself. *sigh*

As I have now managed to cross the Great Half-Century Divide, 64 doesn't sound that old any more . . . .


Doesn't mean I have any idea what I'll be doing then.

You don't know what you'll be doing tomorrow? Comon man, at least plan a week ahead!

Needing you and feeding you, of course.

For what it's worth, I'll be 64 next year and I'm planning on still being around and riding a bike.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

I am already quasi-retired at 48, 64 is only 16 more years. Yeah, I will be looking at 20 year old teak trees enjoying more than a square mile of forest (just added it up today) - and that is if we don't keep expanding which is highly unlikely.

Nothing really needs to change in my life so things will probably remain the same - perhaps a little more travel.
