Re: What are your expectations for longevity?

My mother lived to be 100 and my dad 99. They took very few meds, didn't give much thought to how old they were, they had a large vegetable garden up until they were 91 when we got them to a retirement home. My dad was a bee keeper and mother a homemaker. They went to church regularly but when they fell and broke their hips it was down hill thereafter. Moral of the story --keep standing on 2 feet.
