Acording to WHO statistics, you have a good chance to get to 70... Almost anybody does these days. It's over 90 that it gets more difficult, so you'v got lot's of pictures still to take. Best wishes!

Hold that thought while I get a picture of a screen shot of that post Joe.

Enjoy your birthday Joe!

Isn't it great to look back over all that history and realize you lived through most of it? (This is what my granddaughter told me on my most recent birthday.)
