WHAT'S ON MY MIND TODAY

**I saw this headline just this morning:

"US Women's Life Expectancy Drops to Bottom of Wealthy Nations. The life 

expectancy for U.S. women is the lowest among wealthy nations. Today, the 

U.S.'s 19.4-year life expectancy (after 65) is 10th. France leads all countries at 

22.7 years, followed by Japan (22.1) and Spain (21.6)."

According to data we compiled:

"A man reaching age 65 today can expect to live, on average, until age 84.3.

A woman turning age 65 today can expect to live, on average, until age 86.6

(which has now changed to 84.4).

And those are just averages. About one out of every four 65-year-olds today will 

live past age 90, and one out of 10 will live past age 95."

I'm 75 years old and the second oldest first cousin in my Mother's family, the 

Cline family next to my oldest first cousin, Franklin. I also may be the second 

oldest first cousin in my Father's family, the Caricofe family next to my oldest 

first cousin Johnny. That what I just typed is a little over my head, but I believe

I got it right. 

So, at 75, I'm 10 years beyond 65 years of age and need to live about 9 more 

years to reach the magic number of 84.3 years old. If I was a woman or a 

transgender, I would need to live 19.4 more years to reach the average life 

expectancy of a woman or a transgender.

My Father died at 73 years of age missing the mark by 11.3 years and my Uncle 

Paul died in 1999 at age 62, I believe, missing the average age of death by 22.3 

years. Mother was the 1 in 10 that died past 95 at age 96 and, I believe my Aunt 

Lottie may have been close to that. 

So, we never heard of transgenders when we kids were growing up and, I 

believe, the government just makes up somethings sometimes to confuse us old 

people. The source of this article that's stated above is: https://www.ssa.gov/.

I know that Google, the Social Security Administration and other government 

agencies are tracking us old people hoping with our death that our social security

payments will end thus adding more money to the treasury department's coffers.

There is a life expectancy calculator at: 

https://www.ssa.gov/planners/lifeexpectancy.html. 

But you know what? All this messing around with calculators and statictics isn't 

going to do for you one bit of good. My quote from above reads: "Life expectancy 

is not determined by statistics, but in your case, by God or the devil."
