I thought that maybe your doctor had told you to get your estate in order!

That was 5 years ago. Fortunately the NHS intervened. I doubt I’ll make it to 91 , but the DoE is 97 so who knows?

What age are you now John? The average age of death for a man in the UK is about 81. Perhaps you need a more realistic target as it seems that most of us will not reach the age of 91.

Not me on other site! Must have a doppelgänger! Handle chosen as I am a pilgrim through life!

Cymro: Now 81 so I should be off soon!! Mother lived to 98, father KIA 33 but his brother lived well into ‘90’s so fingers crossed! Life’s a lottery

Well you seem to have chosen the right parents so with a bit of luck and the right genes. I'm 72 and rather lucky to have got this far. Don't ask it would take too long.

I am now 84 and still have most of my own teeth, do not need glasses and go dancing at least two nights a week. I know I cannot do some things like I did 20 years ago but I I enjoy life while I can.

82 next birthday and hope to be around for the next one.

However, by now I have seen so many I can't work up much interest any more!

I did see this one, but only in passing on my usual early morning trip to the bathroom!
