If they all died by 72...well, then take it at 62......unless, of course, they did themselves in by coal mining, working in asbestos factory, or smoked four packs a day their whole life....and you don't/didn't.

_______________________________________________

I took mine at 62. I gave up smoking and drinking at the age of 35. Never worked in a coal mine or an asbestos factory. But, at the age of 53 developed a massive blood clot in my leg. Ten years later, this past November, developed yet another DVT in the "good leg".
There is no telling how long we are going to live. I feel as though I missed the bullet twice but no one can be assured that they will live to be 90 even if their parents lived that long.
