    reminds me of the forever Maple Leafs owner Harold Ballard, who made it into his 80s in spite of a terrible health record and cantankerous personality.

    one Toronto writer, asked once how he could possibly still be alive, replied, "The only sensible answer is - even the Devil himself won't take him!"

    Horns, I hope you enjoyed that line - but not so much that it impacts your current state of affairs.



    my Mom BITD in her 70s had pretty bad asthma, and laughing too much was a rough trigger.

    so whenever I "got on a roll," she would have to wave me away to stop the gig immediately. which I did.

    she used to joke that God was a bit cruel to give her both asthma and such a story/joketelling son, lol

    It's a great line, and I laughed because I know that there's a lot of truth in it...

    i just adopted a new kitten last week. I'm 54... cat will probably live 16 years or so... It's kind of a bummer to think I've probably got one cat's life left in me.
    I'm not expecting to grow flowers in the desert...

    Ah, you got two cat lives, easy.
    I'm just here for the baseball.
