How can I be that old? Three of my grandparents didn't live that long. My brother-in-law turned 75 a few days ago, and although he has had a couple of health issues in the last few years, he's still very active. He celebrated that birthday during a trip to Scotland. Grandpa Ross, who lived to be almost 79, was an old, old man at 75. However, except for one who died as a toddler, all of his children (7) lived to be at least 80 - two of them made it past 90. At 75 my father was still going strong - he was 89 when he died. I think my chances of seeing my great-granddaughters graduate from high school are pretty good, unless my multiple myeloma decides otherwise.
