Watching as my dad fades away. It looks like he will have both legs amputated soon and was diagnosed with lung cancer this week. His biggest problem (to me) is that he seems to have given up on life. He refuses to exercise his upper body anymore. He has gone back to smoking. And sitting. And showing an outlook that depresses the shit out of me whenever I am around him. My mother does everything for him with the exception of the controls on the remote. Anyhoo, this made me think about how much time that I have remaining.....what I want to do.....what I don't want to do.....how much money I have to do what I want to do......most of it revolves around riding the Hyper in remote locations. It seems to me that a person has to know when to pull the trigger, and that starts with a decent estimate of how long one might live. The one thing that I know for sure is that there is no way that I could live like he does. I couldn't handle someone waiting on me hand and foot, not to mention the depression and boredom. This seems legit: http://www.poodwaddle.com/life/ Anyone have other pointers for playing the last few innings of life? I don't think that anyone should fuck this part up by not having a plan and executing said plan.
