My year of turning 100?

I am still getting used to my year of turning 50 years old. Today, an ad on the back of the New York Times Week in Review says “Hallmark sold 85,000 ‘Happy 100th Birthday!’ cards last year.” (It’s an add for retirement planning.) Of course, estimates are there are about 40,000 to 50,000 centenarians in the United States. I couldn’t find a stat on how many turned 100 last year. Still, it’s a daunting idea — imaging living to 100. I’d have to live to 2057. Of course, as I’ve mentioned in a previous post, I’m only living until I’m 89. Of course, I’m not sure I have enough cash to make it to 69, much less 89 or 100!
