I've determined that life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a dainty and well-preserved condition. But, my life's journey is, rather, to be fully enjoyed, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and I intend to be found skidding broadsided into heaven and when landing I will proclaim, "WOW, WHAT A RIDE!"
My orthopedic surgeon, just grinned and recommended I avoid bungee jumping or hang gliding . . .
