If he has progressive dementia, he will not know or care if he does or does
not byt the time he reaches 100.  The best thing about dementia is that one
does not remember what ails one or that it has persisted for a while.  You
just live in the moment, which if I remember correctly was one of the
objectives of the 60's..

In Canada, "Vim" is the name of a trademarked low abrasive liquid
scrubbing cleaner for kitchen and bathroom use (not recommended for
film!) Very useful for removing the scuff marks on tiles from running to
the bathroom, I hear. ;-)

I know a man who in his mid-late seventies used to play tennis and win
against people in their 20s, walked, biked and swam daily, and was very
strong for his age.  He is now in his mid eighties, and is feeble and
weak and has progressive dementia.  He starts to repeat things after 15
minutes of discussion.

He used to tell me he'd live until he was 100, and he may, although I
suspect otherwise.  We never know what our bodies or minds will do.

Yes, but whatever our bodies and minds do, we can accurately record it
all on Fuji film! Buy some today! ;-)

OK, I apologize for the flippancy, and I'll end my part in this thread
now, call it late summer frolic ;-) It was the full moon last night...
(and quite a moon it was) OK, call it lunacy...
