Nice week guys!  Ergo, congratulations on getting the genetic lottery.   I hope I'm able to go skiing when I'm about to turn 90, very impressive.

Nice week guys!  Ergo, congratulations on getting the genetic lottery.

Remains to be seen. My very fit and very athletic uncle on my mother's had a heart attack and died at 47. My mom showed the earliest signs of Alzheimer's in her 60s. So on that side, things ain't so rosy.

My dad will be 90 and still works in the garden and takes not a single pill of any kind - aspirin, vitamin, medicine. His brother was a chain smoker for 60 years, not into fitness at all, veteran of the Battle of the Bulge and died just this year at 93 and could crank out the NYT crossword puzzle until a few years ago. He quit not because of cognitive decline, but because he was bored - could do the Sunday puzzle in under and hour without a dictionary. One time told me, "Well I know all the rivers of Western Europe because I had to fight my way across them." So if I get those genes, I'm all set.
