Getting older sucks, but it beats the alternative.
Originally I had 7 Uncles, the evil uncle died almost 20 years ago.
Last 12 months 3 more uncles have died with most recentdeath coming yesterday. Being in late 70s the recent deaths are not unexpected by actuarial tables but losing 3 of the 4 in that age group seems like low odds.

RIP Jerry

Bodog tonight offers chance to bust Evelyn Ng.
