An excellent mental exercise, is to ask yourself what would you do if you knew you only had 1 day to live? Then what would you do if you only had one year, and finally another 100 years.

It's pretty safe that most of us have more than one day, and less than 100 more years, so get your bucket list in order and take care of unfinished business, but don't live like there is no tomorrow, because there most likely will be.

I entertained at nursing homes with my accordion for many, many years until the day that one of the ladies met me at the front door and asked, "When did you move in?"

Many of us have had a reason to be thankful we're alive. It seems like there are many reasons I shouldn't be here, one being Vietnam. Then I look at my father who is living with us. He's 90 and survived D-Day, 5 battles and WWII. Ask him what was his worst D-DAY experience and he'll tell you that it was getting out of the landing craft, stepping into water over his head, and breaking the new pipe he paid .80 for in England.

I used to live next door to a WWII vet that lost his twin on Christmas Eve, 1944.
He is also still living with us as I see him about once a month at the grocery store.
Thanks to all who served !!
