more “good” years left.

Hey, thanks to the miracles of modern science, by the time I’m 75, the life expectancy could be pushing 100. Maybe I’ll be able to just download my consciousness to a floppy disk and upload it to a fancy robot body or something.

But in the meantime, I’ve got a lot to look forward. I already mentioned grandchildren.

of their situations where they want them to be. I’ve still got one kid left at home for a couple more years. It will be interesting to see what she ends up deciding to do with her life post-high school.

And then, of course, there’s retirement. While I’m in no hurry to get there, it’ll still be nice to just finally have no responsibilities and obligations and deadlines.

Who knows what the next couple of decades might bring? If I divide my life into two 25-year halves, it’s crazy to think how much has changed. From 1973 to1998, I went from a baby to someone with babies of my own. From 1998 to 2022, I have watched those babies grow up. I’ve been married for almost 30 years. Now two of my kids are married.

Yes, it’s been quite a ride, and I’ve (more or less) had a great time over the last 49 years.

I’m excited to see where the next 49 take me!
