    I'd be happy to make it to tomorrow... but that has been my attitude all of my adult life.

    In all fairness, dead is too late to start surfacing!

    Number one item on my bucket list, beat his record.

    Only 35 years to go. Is it too early to call in the Guineas Record people to give them a head up?
