I have a tendency to do more than I am able to.

It is important that I remember my age. 

I, for sure, don’t want to spend my last years in a hospital.

So far, I have been lucky. I will try to do my best not to push it too far. 

It has its limits. I am 107-years-old.

Hard to believe, but figures don’t lie. Best of all, I am able to get around (with the help of a walker).

With the proper glasses, I can read, and do. 

I watch the TV news programs and 60 Minutes with Danny sitting beside me.

I don’t take my luck for granted.

Most people are not that fortunate. 

I have seen many tragedies.
