Of course, this story got me to thinking about all my siblings and the fact that all seven of us are still around and working on our sixth decade of life. If all of us were to make it to our nineties with no calamities, and this is possible because we are all nine years apart, we would have a collective span of 662 living years. That’s interesting, isn’t it? Longevity runs on one side of our family, so I guess we’ll see what the future brings. One never knows how life will turn out for anyone.
Then again, by the time you reach your nineties, you have to think about a body filled with aches and pains, not to mentions eye and hearing impairments among other things. Few people reach old age unscathed by life in some way. Would living this long really be a good thing?
Merlin - the cat with the loudest purr in the world
He’s a handsome fellow and brings to mind my Raven who also purrs loudly, but nothing to match Merlin I’m sure. However, even with my poor hearing, I can hear my Raven purring all the time and that always makes me smile and count my blessings that he ended up in my house.
