I love the way this thread switched from taxes to a forum on whether we youngin's should encurage our parents to give up driving.My dad was also going blind from glaucoma. He was 84 pushing 85 and was making appointments with any doctor who would tell him there was some way to improve his sight so he could pass the driving test on his upcoming birthday. Well just before each monthly appointment he had scheduled, he'd have a mini heart attack and end up in the hospital. He had congestive heart failure. His regular doctor told him he was walking a thin line and he could go at any time. When my sister-in-law was looking through his wallet for his medical card, she found his license and realized that Dad's license wasn't due to expire on his 85th birthday. Dad was ecstatic. He didn't care that he'd have to deal with the renewal the following year. His exact words were, "Oh good, I'll be dead by then!" And he was.
