At his 103rd birthday party, my grandfather was asked if he planned to be around for his 104th.
"I certainly do," he replied. "Statistics show that very few people die between the ages of 103 and 104."
My father, at age 93, had only the most basic needs and very few wants.
Last fall my sister-in-law, hoping to get a little help in choosing a suitable birthday gift for him, asked, "Pa, what would you like for your birthday this year?"
"Nothing," he replied.
"But, Pa," she kidded, "that's what we gave you last year."
"Well," he answered, "I'm still using it."
